At The University Of New Haven, West Haven Campus
The Orange Economic Development Corporation will host the 17th Annual Orange Business and Community Expo on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year the Expo will be held at the University of West Haven, Beckerman’s Rec Center, 300 Boston Post Road, West Haven. The move will allow for a larger audience and more vendors. Annemarie Sliby, Executive Director says, “We are excited with the change. The move will allow for all vendors to be in one area, with a separate space for seminars and activities. There will be plenty of parking, as students have completed their semester.”
As always, the Expo is free and open to the public. Registeration to attend the event is suggested, but walk-ins are always welcome. Business owners, their employees, and local residents can look forward to product demonstrations, activities, and raffles; while networking with over 60 business vendors. There are many acitivities scheduled, such as: the Annual Greater New Haven’s Spring Brochure Swap presented by Visit New Haven; Morning Jolt provided by the Orange Chamber of Commerce; Professional Headshots provided by Liz Lyon Photography; an Art Exhibit hosted by the Orange Arts & Culture Council; and a seminar – Preparing Your Business For Any Emergency, provided by Anthony Cuozzo of the Orange Training Group. The above activities are free.
