Melville entrepreneurs prepare for annual expo

October 8, 2018 by  

The Business Expo 2018 is an opportunity for startups and small businesses to gain more visibility.

The Melville expo introduces attendees to the variety of companies working in the surrounding area. The event is meant to be a fun way for business owners to meet, network, and much more. Exhibitors bring product samples, promotional products, and advertising materials to promote their business. Included in the day will be live music, raffles and food tastings from area restaurants.

The organizers allocate fewer than 100 spaces for vendor booths to prevent overcrowding. The vendors assemble in the Grand Ballroom, where presentations take place and speakers will also appear. Sponsors receive advertising space at the expo and exhibitors have the help of Ambassadors to connect with other company owners and attendees at the expo.

Admission to attend the event is free to those that preregister on the Eventbrite website and $10 per person at the door. Anyone that is interested in sponsorship can visit the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo webpage for more information. The exhibition space sells out early, so any business owner that missed out this year should connect with the Chamber to receive a notice when the 2019 preparations begin.

The Expo is from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on November 1st at the Hilton Long Island/Huntington at 598 Broadhollow Road in Melville.
