The Silver City Grant County Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center have teamed up to host the 2018 Grant County Business Expo. The Business Expo will take place next Tuesday – October 16 at the Grant County Business & Conference Center in Silver City.
The kick-off for this year’s Business Expo is a lunch with a guest speaker. The lunch consisting of lasagna, salad, vegetables and dessert will begin at 11:15 a.m. Our guest speaker presentation sponsored by Freeport-McMoRan will begin at 11:30.
Mr. Jerome Wade is an excellent speaker with a great message for small business owners and managers. His presentation is titled “UNLEASHED – How the best leaders create the results they want.” The cost for the meal and presentation is only $15.00 per person. You must pre-register for this event. You can register for the lunch presentation on the Chamber’s website (www.silvercity.org) or on the Chamber of Commerce Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SCGCChamber).

The Business Expo showcase will begin at 1:00 p.m. immediately after the lunch presentation. Booths representing Business Resource Partners from across southwest New Mexico will be present. You will have the opportunity to share information and have questions answered. The businesses represented at the booths are looking for ways to assist small businesses in our area. If your business would like to reserve a booth space, please call Mario LaFragola, SBDC Business Advisor, at 575.546.6556 Extension 4105. The cost for a booth space is free, and there is no cost for small business owners and managers to attend the Business Expo Showcase.
The Silver City Grant County Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center strive to assist local businesses in the southwest New Mexico area. Some of the companies that will be manning booths at the Business Expo Showcase will include banking and financial institutions, insurance companies, real estate offices, investment companies, and companies specializing in business services.
