Friday, November 2, 2012 • 7:16pm
Newton, NJ (November 2, 2012) - Due to the extenuating circumstances brought about by Hurricane Sandy, the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce has re-scheduled its popular Business Expo originally slated for Wednesday, November 7. The event will now be held on Tuesday, November 20 at the Crystal Springs Country Club in Hardyston beginning at 4 p.m. and running until 8 p.m.
“Rescheduling the event is the right thing to do at this time,” said Chamber President Tammie Horsfield. “Our members and the residents of Sussex County have a lot on their minds right now. It’s in the best interest of everyone – both the businesses that participate in Expo and residents that look forward to attending – to hold the event later in the month.”
Horsfield thanked the representatives of Crystal Springs Country Club, where Expo is held, for their understanding and flexibility in changing the date. “It’s not easy to re-schedule an event of this size,” explained Horsfield, “and the Chamber sincerely appreciates the help we received from our associates at the resort.”
The primary goal of Expo is to provide an opportunity for Sussex County residents to meet local business people and find out what goods and services are available in the community. Expo features a variety of exhibits from area businesses as well as free admission, free parking, free giveaways, and free hors d’ oeuvres. Visitors with a large “to do” list but not a lot of time will appreciate being able to gather information about a variety of businesses and services in one location.
Newton Medical Center and Saint Clare’s Hospital are Expo’s Main Event Sponsors. Additional sponsors for Expo include Bentley Assisted Living, T.M. Brennan Contractors, Inc., College Hunks Hauling Junk & College Hunks Moving, Compassionate Care Hospice, Eastern Propane Corporation, Plymouth Rock Assurance, PNC Bank, Thorlabs, The Sussex County Journal, and WSUS 102.3 FM / WNNJ 103.7 FM. Atlantic Ambulance will be providing free shuttle service from the parking areas.
Exhibit space is still available. For more information about Expo or to obtain a contract or sponsorship form, visit www.sussexcountychamber.org or call the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce at 973-579-1811.
