SAN ANGELO–What do companies like J.C. Company, Suddenlink, Jackson-Hewett Tax Service, or a campus university like Park University have in common? All these along with 76 other vendors converged under one canopy, the McNease Convention Center, in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce' Business Expo. 



A total of 80 vendors set up up booths this morning at 11 as the Business Expo got underway.

Laura Lewis, Chamber membership assistant, spoke with Conexión about this year's Expo's attendance numbers.
"We are up on numbers in booths and also better attendance and we are very encouraged by that," Lewis said.
Lewis mentioned also that there were several other first time businesses such as Organo Gold and Get A Grip of West Texas.

This year's Silent Auction has over 100 items donated by local businesses to showcase their items and wares. All of the money will go toward keeping the costs of the exhibitors down. 


After the Expo concludes, a networking mixer will be open with the public invited to attend; it will be held from 5-6:30 p.m.

Other businesses in attendance just to mention a few: ABC 38 television, Sagora Senior Living, Window Depot, Kindred at Home, Ener-Tel, etc.
