Chamber's Business Expo returns to SUNY Plattsburgh Field House

This year's expo has nearly 200 businesses lined up, many of which will offer free samples, demonstrations and giveaways, said Parks.

"That's always fun for the people that attend the show because you never know what you might win," said Parks, who reminds people attending the expo to bring extra business cards to enter into the many anticipated drawings. "You might win a mountain bike or you might win free Web service. It could be just about anything."

The chamber of commerce also holds a 50-50 drawing, giving attendees the opportunity to even take home a little extra cash that day. Last year's year drawing saw the recipient take home more than $450, said Parks.

"It's a lot of fun for everybody," she said. "And, you're never going to find this many businesspeople under one roof at one time."

The expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with admission $3 per person.

Free coffee will be offered all day, courtesy of La Quinta Inn and Suites and Glens Falls National Bank.

The event is sponsored by TwinState Voice.Data.Video Inc., WPTZ Newschannel 5, Verizon Wireless, Curtis Lumber, Buck Supply and Distribution, and Denton Publications.
