Chamber EXPO is this week!

exponewsWe’ve mentioned it in several recent columns and the time is finally here for our annual EXPO, showcasing local businesses that provide products and services to our community.

Come out this Thursday, June 16 from 3-7 p.m. to Fontainebleau High School, located on Hwy. 59, just south of I-12 in Mandeville. We are proud to once again be partnering with our excellent public school partners and bring visitors to the main hallway and campus of FHS.

Admission is free to this multi-faceted business trade show, this year sponsored by and The Times-Picayune, St. Tammany Parish Public Schools, The Lake 94.7, Biz New Orleans Magazine, Cox Media, Lakeview Regional Medical Center and Sophisticated Woman. Now in its 22nd year, EXPO offers visitors a one-stop shop for information about goods and services available from local businesses.

Business owners and employees are encouraged to come to EXPO to connect and learn all that’s new in technology, healthcare, professional services and more! Enjoy food samples, and register for door prizes.

The engaged members of our Small Business Council have played a part in the entire event’s plan. They coordinated two workshops scheduled just before the show so our exhibitors can learn before they receive visitors to their exhibits. The topics will include “Marketing Yourself with LinkedIn” and “Real Estate Development in St. Tammany Parish”. Both workshops offer free admission. Seating is limited so pre-registration is encouraged: call our office at 985-892-3216 or register online at

Membership is the lifeblood of our Chamber. We are often asked how many members we have. Among our nearly 1,000 members are entrepreneurs with one to two employees, banks, publicly owned corporations, lawyers, restaurants and businesses with over 1,000 employees. We exist to serve all of them, and they support their Chamber for various reasons. EXPO is our biggest annual business support event. We always welcome new members, new start-ups or those with renewed awareness of our mission, or are seeking one or more member-only benefits. Every day there is a lot happening behind the scenes, but for those considering membership who want to meet staff, volunteer leadership and members in action, EXPO is the perfect day to check us out.  We look forward to meeting you this Thursday, June 16 at Fontainebleau High.
