The 2017 Annual PrimeTime Business EXPO is Oct. 14

Hundreds of business, civic and community leaders will participate in the 2017 PrimeTime Business EXPO, on Saturday, Oct. 14, at Bradley Square Mall, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

The annual EXPO allows members of Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to present their products or services to the community. 

“Based on the previous year’s collaborative success we anticipate an even larger group of participants for this year,” said Aaron Weatherford, chamber membership director.  “This is a community-wide event where everyone is invited to attend, however only Chamber members can showcase.” 

Something new for 2017 is the EXPO Passport experience. Attendees will each receive a passport with a list of the vendors. “Once they visit with a vendor, the passport will be stamped,” explains mr. Weatherford. “Once they have visited a certain number of vendors and had their passport stamped it can then be submitted for prizes.”

Some of the larger prize items this year include: a weekend trip to the Wilderness at the Smokies Resort provided by Outland Travel, a iCool mattress set provided by MurMaid Mattress and a Whirlpool Corp. KitchenAid mixer.

To learn more about the PrimeTime Business EXPO or how to become a member of Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce contact Mr. Weatherford at 472-6587 or visit www.clevelandchamber.com
