JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The second annual Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce Business Expo Oct. 4 was by all accounts a smash hit with the city's business community.

"We were sold out two weeks before the event, and had a 45 percent increase over our first year," said JC Chamber President John Bemont.

Nearly 100 exhibitors came to The Bricks at Perimeter Church. There they set up booths, participated in workshops and had the opportunity to network with 1,000 avid business people and entrepreneurs like themselves.

Workshops included topics like "Strategic Business Planning" and "Business Financial Planning." Bemont said there were 400 spaces pre-registered for the workshops.

"Many people tell us they like the Expo just for the contacts they make," Bemont said. "There was certainly a lot of buzz and energy that you could just feel."

Bemont expects to carry on with a third Expo next year and hopes to return to The Bricks.

"This has been a great venue for us. There is a tremendous amount of parking here – although we just about filled it up. It is very spacious and the layout has multi-levels, which creates a real sense of space," Bemont said.
