Registration Open for Northwoods Business ExpoSubmitted: 01/09/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm


RHINELANDER - In a tough economic climate local communities continue to do all they can to support local shops.

The Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Northwoods Entrepreneurial Club and Northwoods Women in Business to put on the sixth annual Northwoods Business Expo next month.

The event has grown so much every year they'll have to move from the Northwoods Banquet Center to James Williams Middle School.

Chamber Executive Director Lara Reed knows the event is a good way to reach new customers.

"It really is geared toward that small business owner. It's really an affordable chance for smaller entrepreneurial businesses to get their name out into the public, and hopefully gain some more exposure and some new customers," says Reed.

Grow North will also hand out cash prizes to businesses with the best business plan.

Registration just opened, and starts at $50. The chamber is adding a little extra incentive to sign up.

"This BINGO card has 24 different business names that we spread out around the gym, so there's not two businesses next to each other, to encourage the attendees to go around and visit all of the different booths and really see the people that are there. And then those people attending that fill our their BINGO card will have a couple door prizes that we'll draw names and give away for that as well," says Reed.

Attendance at the expo is free to the public. For more information on how to sign up please see the link to the Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce below.
