>New Bern Greater Business Expo a Grand Success!


The New Bern Riverfront Convention Center (NBRCC) was packed with area vendors and visitors for the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce’s (NBCOC) Greater Business Expo.

Visitors enjoyed informative displays, coupons, prizes, free items from vendors and local restaurants were giving away food samples.

New this year, vendors received free lunch bags full of goodies since most of them were there all day. Special thanks to Alpha Graphics, Bear Town Cinema 6, Mitchell Hardware, NBCOC, NBRCC, The Pepsi Store, Thea’s Ideas, and Trade Ideas for providing the lunch bags.

Kudos to the Chamber and Convention Center’s staff, volunteers, sponsors, and area vendors for a terrific business expo!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
