An Expo Evolution

Chambers have been bringing expo events to their communities for decades. The Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce hosted its first expo in 2006 at Pinecrest Academy.

The goal of these events was always multi-faceted: to provide networking opportunities, opportunities for business owners to showcase their products and services and educational opportunities for Chamber members. These educational opportunities have progressed over the years from presentations on print marketing to storing data in the Cloud.

In 2017, the Chamber debuted the FoCo Expo, an event geared toward both the Chamber’s membership and Forsyth County at large. In addition to the traditional expo atmosphere, the even boasted local craft brews, food trucks, bounce houses, music, face-painting and balloon animals. Attendance was the highest it has ever been at last year’s event with an audience made up of Chamber members and local families. Tons of fun was had by all, especially the 9-year old winner of a Disney trip raffle prize!

See the expo evolution for yourself when you, your neighbors, your kids and colleagues ALL attend the 2018 FoCo Expo on Thursday, August 9th at the Forsyth Conference Center from 4-8 PM. There is no cost to attend!
