Comments from 2013 attendees and exhibitors:

This was Breedlove's third year in a row to be an exhibitor at the Business Expo. As always, the opportunities to rub shoulders and build relationships with others in the business community, and to meet new people is difficult to put a price tag on. The name recognition that occurs as a result is well worth the investment. In my three years in attendance, this was the best yet. The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce somehow manages to outdo themselves each year.

I appreciate the opportunity to attend this year’s business expo as a guest of our Valpak of Lubbock franchisee, Mike Lambert.  I was very impressed at the attendance, organization, enthusiasm and professionalism of the event, staff and all participants.  This was the most outstanding Chamber-type meeting that I have attended.  It was very obvious how important your organization is to the local business community and how advantageous it is for a local business to be involved with your team.  I commend you on a successful event!
