Expo spotlights local businesses

POSTED: October 26, 2011 4:00 a.m.

Limited space is still available for local businesses wishing to showcase products and services at the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce Consumer Expo.

Now in its 11th year, the mini-trade show shines a spotlight on dozens of local companies and encourages the shop local initiative.

Originally known as the chamber's Business Expo, organizers opted for Consumer Expo this year.

"Before people thought this was an expo for businesses, so we changed the name to Consumer Expo," said Pam Hamalainen, chamber membership director. "We encourage the consumers to come out and see what is available to them in Dawson County."

Chamber officials said the event promotes shopping local and showcases the businesses that shoppers may not realize are available in Dawson County.

"It's so important to shop locally. It fuels the local economy," said Linda Williams, president of the chamber.

The expo will feature a variety of local businesses, ranging from banks and financial services, to real estate professionals and non-profit organizations, among others.

Several local restaurants and caterers will also offer samples to promote their restaurants.

Williams said last year's event "was a real positive experience and a good opportunity for our members and the community."

The consumer expo, sponsored by State Farm Insurance-Carla Boutin and Legal Shield-Rory Cunningham, will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Lakeview Center, 2057 Dawson Forest Road, East. Admission is free.

To register a booth or to learn more about the networking opportunity, call the chamber at (706) 265-6278.
