Business Expo set for May 8

Ron Ja­wor­ski, foot­ball ana­lyst and former Eagle, will ap­pear at the Cham­ber Expo.

The Great­er North­east Phil­adelphia Cham­ber of Com­merce/Crown Hold­ings An­nu­al Busi­ness Expo will be held on Wed­nes­day, May 8, from 2 to 6 p.m., in the Cam­pus Cen­ter gym­nas­i­um at Holy Fam­ily Uni­versity at Frank­ford and Grant av­en­ues.

Ron Ja­wor­ski, a foot­ball ana­lyst for ES­PN and former Phil­adelphia Eagle, will make an ap­pear­ance at the Expo, which is free and open to the pub­lic. This year’s theme is “The Road to Suc­cess.”  

The Expo is ex­pec­ted to bring to­geth­er more than 100 busi­nesses from a wide vari­ety of in­dus­tries and non­profits that will dis­play their goods and ex­plain their ser­vices. 

Ex­hib­it­or tables are avail­able at $350 for mem­bers and $599 for non-mem­bers (which in­cludes first-year dues).

“This is the best op­por­tun­ity you will have to max­im­ize your mar­ket share,” said GN­PCC Pres­id­ent Al Tauben­ber­ger. “We are work­ing very hard to cre­ate the op­tim­um event for all busi­nesses to show­case their products and ser­vices. The re­sponse from the pub­lic last year was tre­mend­ous, which trans­lated in­to a busy day for our vendors. We fully ex­pect the same this year.”

Last year, the in­dus­tries that took part in­cluded bank­ing, travel, din­ing, ca­ter­ing, health care, com­mu­nic­a­tions, so­cial ser­vices, seni­or liv­ing, edu­ca­tion, main­ten­ance, ware­house clubs, food and bever­age, on­line ser­vices, com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment, payroll ser­vices, in­sur­ance, flor­al, auto body, stor­age, nurs­ing, im­ports and ho­tels.

Hun­dreds of loc­al busi­nessper­sons, many of them key de­cision-makers at their places of work, are ex­pec­ted to at­tend this year. Lou Fein­berg is the long­time Expo chair­man.

The event also will fea­ture samples of loc­al cuisine, and res­taur­ant and ca­ter­ing ex­hib­it­ors. 

A large ar­ray of beau­ti­fully dec­or­ated gift bas­kets will be on dis­play for a si­lent auc­tion. Dona­tions for these bas­kets are still be­ing sought. Spon­sor­ship pack­ages are also avail­able, start­ing at $1,000.

The Fifth An­nu­al Busi­ness Expo Lunch­eon will be held be­fore the Expo, start­ing at 12:30 p.m. in the at­ri­um out­side the ex­hib­i­tion space. “In­ter­na­tion­al trade” will be the top­ic of the lunch­eon for­um.  Tick­ets are $30 for mem­bers and $50 for non-mem­bers. Please re­serve in ad­vance by call­ing the GN­PCC at 215-332-3400. 

The title spon­sor of the Expo is Crown Hold­ings, the in­ter­na­tion­al pack­aging com­pany headquartered in North­east Phil­adelphia.
