Chamber to Host Business Networking Expo on April 17th

The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) is pleased to announce that it will host its first Business Expo on Wednesday, April 17, at 5 p.m. at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, Maryland.

Entitled “EXPOsure: The Mega Mixer”, this brand-new event will be a great way to view a full spectrum of chamber member and upcounty businesses; while creating a stronger business community. “EXPOsure” will combine the fellowship and fun of a normal Business After Hours with all the buzz and excitement of a business trade show. It will soon be one of the area’s premier business development events and a fantastic opportunity for not only exhibitors to showcase their business to potential new customers; but for consumers to find new services, products, and more.

This event offers the business community, from small business entrepreneurs to executives, an opportunity to network with local professionals, engage with exhibitors, and discover resources for business growth. It will showcase over 50 community businesses and allow for large-scale networking as well an opportunity for new products and services to be introduced in the Upcounty. Attendees will enjoy free admission, free networking, entertainment, dozens of exhibitors, a variety of businesses, the Say Cheese! food truck, and more.

Special thanks to our sponsors:

Premier: BrightView & Savant Capital Management

Beverage: Adventist HealthCare – LifeWork Strategies Division

Bags: Chick Fil-A Germantown
