Regional Business Expo

The Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is excited to announce that Washington County businesses and organizations have been invited to participate in a Regional Business Expo.

The event will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 27th at the Mid-America Science Park in Scottsburg. The event will take place from 11 am – 4 pm. 

The 2014 Regional Business Expo is a first step in strengthening the bonds that tie our communities together. With the fast pace of the global economy, it is easy to miss the opportunities that exist in our own backyard. Six counties have joined together to provide this unique marketing and networking event. Those participating in addition to Washington County are: Madison Chamber & Economic Development, Carroll County Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Greater Scott County Chamber of Commerce, Jennings County Chamber of Commerce and Switzerland County Economic Development Corporation.

Join The Chamber of Commerce and other participating organizations as we bridge local supplies with local manufacturers and local professionals with local services. The Regional Business Expo provides a good return on investment for each business and takes a leading role in building collaborative growth for our region.

Early bird registrations offer a discount to make this event even more profitable for your business/organization. Of course, Chamber of Commerce members also receive a discount ($100 off an exhibit).

Please contact the Chamber Office if you have any questions or to register and/or sponsor the event.
