In its first two years, the Mount Pleasant Business and Community Expo provided local companies, professionals and organizations an excellent opportunity to market their products and services to area residents. Throughout the day, attendees and vendors exchanged ideas and contact information with one goal in mind: to get the word out about the businesses that were driving the local economy.
That’s still the case, but with a new twist: This year the expo is also going to be a lot of fun.
The expo is scheduled from 2 to 7 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Omar Shrine Convention Center in Mount Pleasant. During the final two hours, attendees and vendors will enjoy food provided by local restaurants, and they’ll be able to wash it down with beer and wine, which will be sold at various locations on the convention floor. Live entertainment will be provided by Lyndsey Goodman-Moynihan’s jazz band, and local radio personality Kelly Golden will be broadcasting from the expo.
Door prizes will be given away throughout the day.
“The expo was a great business event in 2011 and 2012, but this year we wanted to make it more fun than it’s been in the past,” said expo committee chairman Brian Sherman.
“Our vendors will be able to continue to do business during the happy hour, which we think will be a big plus for them and for attendees as well.”
Local law firm Clawson and Staubes is the title sponsor of the Mount Pleasant Business and Community Expo. Community sponsors include Tony Pope State Farm and the town of Mount Pleasant.
