March 27, 2013ALPHARETTA, Ga. The North Fulton Business Expo drew more than 85 vendors and hundreds of visitors to press palms and make contacts March 22 at the Marriott hotel on Windward Parkway.
Organized by the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, visitors came to promote their businesses and open new markets.
"We came to make more connections and to partner with other businesses," said Samantha Couzens of ADCAP Network Systems, an Alpharetta-based telecommunications company.
"We want to participate more," she said. "The contacts make it successful."
Hillary Eldridge of Home Helpers, an in-home care service that serves Alpharetta and Cumming, said this was her first time attending the expo.
"We're members of the chamber and we've heard great things about it. We wanted to take part. It's really great for networking," she said. "I'm glad we came."
