Coweta County’s biggest and most influential business exposition will take place Thursday, Oct. 22 at the Summit Family YMCA.

Doors open for business-to-business networking from 1-4 p.m., and to the general public from 4-7 p.m. Cost for general admission is $5.

This annual trade show, which is presented by Delta Community Credit Union, offers a competitive shopping experience and features the newest products and services in Coweta and the metro Atlanta business market.

With more than 100 exhibitors and almost 2,000 attendees, this event sells out and is a great opportunity to expose businesses and citizens to thousands of potential clients, network with peers, and generate quality business leads.

Many of the area’s largest employers will be joining exhibitors for a special “Think Coweta First” business-to-business networking session. Also, Access Coweta will host an exhibitors’ lounge.

“In the face of a slower economy, BigExpo really focuses on the great companies that are here in Coweta and what we can do to support them,” said Reta Origer, sales manager with the Country Inn and Suites, owner of Marketing Sense, and Chamber chairperson for the event.

“BigExpo is a great place to learn about other businesses and generate new leads for your own business,” Origer added.

For the second year, Delta Community Credit Union is the Title Sponsor of BigExpo 2009, and Summit Family YMCA serves for the third consecutive year as the facilities sponsor.

Other corporate sponsors include: Benton House, Canongate Golf Clubs, Cardiovascular Consultants of Georgia, Coweta-Fayette EMC, Media Production Group, Newnan Utilities, NuLink, Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Relyco, SouthTowne Motors,Toyota of Newnan and United Bank. Media sponsors are Comcast Spotlight and 92.5 The Bear.

With more than 600 members throughout Coweta County, the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing economic prosperity for all Coweta’s citizens. As the county’s largest business organization, the Chamber works to provide business leadership to foster an economic and cultural climate favorable to all business, in order to create a higher quality of life for all residents.
