Why Businesses are Coming Back as Vendors for Lexpo 2015

June 10, 2015 | Posted By: Connor Watkins

Promoting your business... Making connections…Meeting new clients... Building success.

That’s what Lexpo is all about.

Mark Thursday, July 16 on your calendar and make plans to attend the Greater Lexington Chamber and Visitors Center’s 2015 Business Expo at the Radius Campus, located at 300 West Main Street in Lexington.

Vendor-to-vendor networking will take place from 10-11 am, and the event is open to the public from 11 am until 2 pm. There is no charge to attend, and lunch will be served.

Last year, Lexpo hosted more than 50 exhibitors, and the booths for this year's event are going fast. Vendor booths are 10x6 feet and will come equipped with pipe and drape, one 6-foot table with tablecloth and skirting, two chairs and a wastebasket.

“The Lexpo has been a very successful event for Clarks Termite and Pest Control,” said Brandon Jeffcoat. “We have been a vendor every year because we get to meet qualified perspective clients and other business owners. We have landed several new clients by networking at this event!”

If you’re serious about growing your business, this is a must attend event. Business from all over Lexington County will be showcasing their products and services.

Simplified Office Solutions at Lexpo 2014

Dave Gordon, area sales manager for Simplified Office Solutions, shared another Lexpo success story with us.

“Why spend the time and money to exhibit office equipment at a local expo?  We exhibited last year in the Lexpo and a prospect that we had seen at the prior year’s Lexpo stopped by again to see us. This year, we had what they wanted in a small color printer that could fax, scan to email, print in color and make copies,” Gordon said.

“No big deal you say... This was a hotel chain that bought 2 units to start with. They have now added 4 more units since then and last week they just purchased 12 paper shredders," said Gordon, grinning. "Success breeds success. Lexpo gave us the opportunity to show our products and EARNED the RIGHT to do business with this account.”

Cromers P-Nuts at Lexpo 2014

Cromer’s P-Nuts also had a great experience at Lexpo last year.

"Our Cromer's P-Nuts team experienced their first Lexpo in 2014,” General Manager Agata Chydzinski said. “We were delighted to mingle with many other local vendors and services providers. It truly allowed us to get our name back out in the community."

So... don't wait to reserve your space, or it might be gone!
