Largest Business Expo on the South Plains Slated for May 26
Hosted by the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, Champions of Change,
to draw exhibitors from a wide variety of business sectors
LUBBOCK, Texas – The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Business Expo, the largest business-to-business tradeshow on the South Plains, on Thursday, May 26 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Mac Davis Lane.
The Business Expo showcases more than 125 exhibitors with an expected attendance of more than 3,000. Exhibitors will enjoy a private networking event from 9–10 a.m. before the doors open. The expo allows businesses to develop a more personal relationship with the companies, who could become their next client while creating new connections to heighten overall success.
“Owning a business is not just about making a living. It’s about establishing relationships and becoming part of a community of businesses,” said Lacy Cotter Vardeman, Expo sponsor and owner of Cotter Key Farms. “The Business Expo is an excellent time for Lubbock businesses to showcase what they offer, network and meet our customers.”
The Business at its Best: Expo Series returns for a seventh year, offering two free seminars. The series is part of the Chamber’s effort to address critical business topics and provide tools to navigate and thrive in the ever-changing and evolving workforce. The morning seminar, “Hiring and Retaining Employees in an Uncertain Economic Environment” presented by SCORE, begins at 11:30 a.m. The afternoon session, “How to Create a Better Workplace” presented by Greenberg Media Management, will be led by founder Terry Greenberg and begins at 2:30 p.m.
“Post-pandemic business realities have changed,” said Kay McDowell, president and CEO of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce. “Lubbock businesses have not only adapted but excelled with that change. The Business Expo is a fantastic opportunity for our local companies to showcase what they offer and connect with their customers.”
Along with endless networking opportunities, attendees can also participate in a scavenger hunt to win fun prizes.
