Business After Hours Expo
2023 Expo: April 27, 4-7:30 pm
Crystal Coast Civic Center, Morehead City
It’s not your grandfather’s trade show….it’s after hours! The Business After Hours Expo is an annual event where businesses and organizations can show off their stuff, sell goods, network with each other, and teach the public about what they do. This event includes food, a beer and wine bar, a speed networking event, and a lively atmosphere. Starting in 2023, the Expo is offering free business seminars during the day starting at 10 am.
The event is open to the public, and the admission fee is just $5 per person available for purchase online and at the door. Booths are available for rent starting at just $195 for Chamber members.
Julie Naegelen of the Chamber, who serves as Expo Coordinator, describes the function as “a Business After Hours on steroids – combining the fellowship and fun of a normal Business After Hours with all the buzz and excitement of a business trade show.”
“We encourage our exhibitors to get creative and have some fun,” she said. “Sale of products and services is permitted but not required.”
“The floor layout enables guests to meander, mix and mingle comfortably, while enjoying ample food and drinks. It’s a great way to view the full spectrum of Chamber member businesses and to see what’s new and exciting in the marketplace,” Naegelen added.
