Laura Johnson and I enjoyed catching up with local businesses and non-profits and learning about new ones at today’s Greater New Bern Business Expo!
The New Bern area Chamber of Commerce along with Chamber volunteers did a great job organizing this annual event. We were very impressed with the newly remodeled New Bern Riverfront Convention Center’s staff as they did a wonderful job hosting the Expo.
Special thanks to vendors for putting on a great show. It was good to see our community coming together to support our businesses and non-profit organizations.
Although we didn’t get a chance to visit every booth, we did have the opportunity to capture a lot of them with pictures. They are published on New Bern Now’s Photo Gallery: http://www.newbernnow.com/greater-new-bern-business-expo-2012.
Thea Kincaid of Thea’s Ideas and Shannon LuQuire of Trade Ideas created special lunches for all the vendors with the help of sponsors: Alpha Graphics of New Bern, CCHC Coastal Radiology, Bear Town Cinema, Mitchell Hardware and the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center.
