CBCC PrimeTime Business EXPO Set For August 4

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

The 2018 PrimeTime Business EXPO will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Bradley Square Mall.

The 6th annual EXPO allows members of Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to present their products or services to the community.

“This is a community-wide event where everyone is invited to attend, however only Chamber members can showcase,” said Aaron Weatherford, chamber membership director.  

This year’s EXPO will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

During this same time, the mall is hosting Superhero Saturday, a Back to School Party. There will be an inflatable obstacle course, face painting, balloon animals and, of course, superheroes.

“These events traditionally bring great crowds to the mall, and based on the previous years, we anticipate an even larger group of participants for this year,” ssaid Mr. Weatherford. “The EXPO Passport experience will also be brought back for a second year.”

Attendees will each receive a passport with a list of the vendors.

“Once they visit with a vendor, the passport will be stamped,” said Mr. Weatherford. “Once they have visited a certain number of vendors and had their passport stamped, it can then be submitted for a prize drawing.”
