2011 Business EXPO Recap
October 20, 2011
The 2011 Business EXPO was yet another large, fun, and successful networking event.
Hundreds of people perused the exhibits of our Chamber members.
Around 100 exhibitors displayed their goods and services to those in attendance. This year, there were pirates, golfing, food, and more.
Exhibitors saw the EXPO as a great way to visit with current customers and meet new clients.
There was a smorgasbord of food for lunch during the first “Taste of Calhoun County” competition of the day. Covalli’s Italian Kitchen took home the prize for Best Lunch.
Later on, awards were distributed for Best Non-profit Booth to both YMCA and Relay for Life. Thanks to Buster Miles, the Chamber’s donation was matched so that both non-profits received $300 for their organization.
The awards for Best Booths went to the following: 3rd place to Northeast Alabama Surgical Association, 2nd place to AOD Federal Credit Union, and 1st place to Abbey Carpet & Flooring.
That night, the “Taste of Calhoun County” 2011 Winners were announced as follows:
