The meal will be catered by Ellerbe Springs Inn and Restaurant, who will also be offering samples of their hickory and mesquite smoked barbecue, and their revamped line of Italian dishes and sauces.

“First of all, it’s a chance for people to see new products, and second people get to see what services the different businesses in the area have to offer,” Ellerbe Springs co-owner Jim Lane said. “It’s also a good chance for (public relations), because people get to meet different business people they’ve never met before.”

“The public is more than welcome to attend,” Dineen said. “If they want to get a ticket for the Office Professional of the Year Luncheon, they are certainly welcome to do that as well. Tickets are $15 apiece.”“The Business Expo gives local enterprises the opportunity to come together and establish some new or expanded business-to-business networking with others in the community,” Chamber Director of Membership Angela Dineen said.

She said a variety of vendors have notified the Chamber they will be attending, including banks, print companies, assisted living facilities, several hotels, along with representatives from heavy industry, retail and education and staffing agencies.

In addition, a luncheon will begin at 12 p.m. in the banquet rooms to honor the Chamber’s Office Professional of the Year.
