LUBBOCK, Texas – The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce is excited to kick off 2018 with the largest business to business tradeshow on the South Plains. The Business Expo, presented by American National Bank, is an annual event that will be held on Friday, January 19 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
With an overwhelming demand for a new month the theme this year will be “New Season, New Connections”! If you are looking to connect with other business owners in our community and learn what local companies have to offer then this is the event for you.
The Business Expo showcases more than 200 exhibitors and welcomes approximately 7,000 attendees. Exhibitors will enjoy a private networking event from 9 to 10 a.m. before the doors open. This allows businesses the opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with the companies who could become their next client all while creating new connections to heighten overall success.
For its third-year, Chamber University Expo Series will offer two free seminars to attendees. Part of an interactive lecture series designed to address critical business topics and offer tools to navigate and thrive in the ever-changing demands of the 21st century workplace. Topics and speakers this year are:
- Social Media in 2018: Strategies to Implement TODAY to Boost Your Online Presence NOW. Owner of A Social Key, Stephanie Key Coffman, will discuss what platforms your company should be represented on, how to increase your organic reach, and the evolution of social ROI.
- "Servant Leadership" will be presented by the following Chick-fil-A staff: Brandon Mulkey, Owner & Operator, Abie Rampy, Executive Director of Brand Excellence & Public Relations and Corie Williams, Director of Communications. Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy believed the business should be about more than just selling chicken and that they should be a part of their customer's everyday lives and the communities they serve. This presentation will give you the tools to illustrate Servant Leadership in both your personal and professional environment.
