The Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce's Grow Business and Consumer Expo returns next week at the Patrician Banquet Center at 410 E. U.S. 30 in Schererville.
The Merrillville-based chamber, which serves Merrillville and Crown Point, stages the annual Grow Expo to give people the chance to "grow your network, your business, and your community." It's free and open to the public.
The annual expo will take place from 1 to 6 p.m. May 15. More than 70 vendors will be on hand with food and drink samples, product demonstration, raffles and a newly added retail showcase that will make local, hand-crafted items available for purchase.
Attendees also can get professional headshots taken for marketing needs by photographer Pete Stenberg for $40.
The expo is open for business-to-business networking from 1 to 3 p.m., after which it will be opened to the general public. For more information or to sign up to be a vendor, contact Shellie Dell at 219-769-8180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
