Marsha Gordon is a resident of Greenburgh and has led the Business Council of Westchester for a number of years. One of the best networking events in the county (if not the best) is being held today at the Rye Hilton. Over 1500 people attend. If you can benefit from a great networking event, I recommend that you consider attending the expo this afternoon at the Rye Hilton. You won't be disappointed.
The Westchester Business Expo, the most influential business-to-business trade show in the Hudson Valley, has added some new features this year that will inject excitement and make it easier for visitors to connect with businesses.
More than 180 of the areas elite vendors and merchants will be on hand March 29 from 1-5 p.m. at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook. In addition to vendors, The EXPO will feature “Experience Suites” and “Ask the Expert” booths. More than 1,500 visitors are expected.
New this year will be a Welcome Lounge where participants can continue their conversations in a quieter environment. The lounge, sponsored by X-Quisite Flowers & Events, will not only provide a place for participants to check in and recharge, but a private space where exhibitors can speak one-on-one with potential clients.
Injecting some fun into the mix will be the Expo Passport Promotion. Participants will be able to win exciting prizes by deciphering clues in this booth-to-booth scavenger hunt.
Now in its 15th year, The EXPO provides an opportunity for visitors to mingle with representatives of leading brands in education, healthcare, hospitality, insurance, real estate, banking, not-for-profits, law, marketing and more.
