August 12, 2013CUMMING, Ga. — The Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2013 Business Expo on Aug. 8, bringing together hundreds of business and community leaders.
This year, there were about 1,300 attendees throughout the day and afterhours event.
Jason Mock, director of small business services at the chamber, said exhibitors got to showcase their products and goods to a large group at one time.
“This is an opportunity for our vendors and business community to showcase to business and the community members who live and work here and they wanted to see what new businesses have opened up,” Mock said.
In addition to exhibitors, networking business owners got to mingle with Forsyth County residents and win prizes.
“This is a unique opportunity for businesses to gain exposure for their products and services,” Mock said.
Keynote speaker Mark McGraw spoke on “How to get the most out of your day” during a working lunch sponsored by Panera Bread.
“I think people really left the lunch into the Expo really engaged and making real headway that afternoon,” Mock said. “We could not have been successful without everyone being a part of this.”
