Central Fort Bend Chamber Expo Connected the Community with Local Businesses
Supporting Local Business in Central Fort Bend County

The Central Fort Bend Chamber Business Expo was tremendously successful in connecting local businesses with the Fort Bend Community. This year’s Business Expo was hosted on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at the Rosenberg Civic and provided a powerful platform for local companies to increase their visibility and credibility, build on their brand, reach out to existing clientele and meet new customers. The Central Fort Bend Chamber and its participating member businesses incorporated fun activities and presentations that epitomized the Central Fort Bend’s local business culture and vitalized what it means to shop local.

 The Expo presented the 300 in attendance with the opportunity to network among the local business community discovering new products, services and resources available in Fort Bend County. Visitors found a welcoming environment where they were able to learn more about the latest offerings in the local marketplace while making valuable connections in the community.

 This year’s event included many great giveaways and door prizes from participating businesses including a $250 dinner generously donated by Gallery Furniture.  Visitors enjoyed complimentary food provided by Bull Creek Café & Grill, HEB and Pier 36 Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar.

 The 2016 Central Fort Bend Chamber Business Expo would have not been possible without the support of its corporate sponsors: Echelon on 99, Fort Bend Herald, Kelly Andel - RE/MAX Opportunities, Legacy Ford, Oak Bend Medical Center, Santikos Palladium AVX and Staff Force Personnel Services.
