Expo celebrates products made in America

March 12, 2012 by  

The Upper Bucks Business Expo 2012 will take place at the Quakertown Community High School on April 24 from 12-5 pm. This event is free and open to the public; exhibit tables can be rented for $350 for Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce members and $450 for non-members.

The Business Expo is known as one of the largest shows of its type in the region and strives to recognize locally manufactured products and to celebrate “made in America.” There will be exhibits from various vendors, displays from local manufacturers and sample food tastings from local food vendors and restaurants. Vendors will be treated to a “meet and greet” luncheon from 11 am-noon.

There are expected to be over 100 vendors and manufacturers in attendance who will be showcasing their locally made products. Vendors will be coming from all over Bucks County including as far as Warminster. They will no doubt arrange with printing companies in advance to supply them with extra brochures, flyer printing and other promotional materials so that attendees will have lots to take home with them.

The “meet and greet” luncheon will be an excellent opportunity for local companies and manufacturers to find out what they can do for each other. Most companies would rather work with local suppliers and it makes sense that manufacturers would rather only have to ship short distances than long. This interdependency helps the economy of the region plus it also is environmentally friendly since shipping over short distances leaves a much smaller carbon footprint, which can also save the consumer money in the long run.
