Chamber's Business Expo returns to Plattsburgh State Field House

And, just because it's called a "business" expo, don't let the name fool you. There's much fun to be had at the event, said Parks.

"Some businesses will do a giveaway for the day ... others like WIRY do giveaways all day long," said Parks. "They're making it fun for people. They realize the expo is a good place to share information, but it's also a good place to just to make contact with people and to have a good time."

Parks recommends, if attending the show, to set aside at least a couple hours, if possible.

"It does take a while to get through the whole show," said Parks. "There's lots to see and lots to do and many, many people to talk to."

The expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with admission $3 per person. An after-party will be held at the Naked Turtle on Dock Street.

Free coffee will be offered all day at the expo, 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, AT&T, Curtis Lumber, Buck Supply and Distribution, and Denton Publications.

There are currently a few booths available, measuring 8 ft. by 10 ft., at a cost of $395 for chamber members and $495 for nonmembers.

"When the booths are gone, they're gone, so I would say call as soon as you can if you're interested," said Parks.

For more information or to check availability for booths, contact Parks at 563-1000.
