The 8th Spring River Area Chamber of Commerce Business Expo will be held on Saturday, November 11 at the A.L. Hutson Memorial Center in Highland.  Businesses and organizations will set up from 9am to 1pm to promote and/or sell products in one convenient location that is free to the public to attend.

Attendees have multiple opportunities to win prizes, products and services from the vendors.  Additionally, they get a passport of all the participants, whereby once completed they will be entered into a drawing for $250 cash from the Chamber.

Vendor fees are free for SRACC members or  $25 for non-members.  Each area will have a 6-foot table and 2 chairs, however they may request a larger table and area if needed.  Electricity is limited and available on a first come first served basis and vendors should  bring a long extension cord. WiFi will be available. The number of booths are limited so reservations for booths need to be made immediately. Also, priority does go to SRACC members.

Food trucks are invited to purchase a space outside during the event at $25. They must be totally selfcontained as no electricity or water is available outside.

Vendors are encouraged to sell products, give away samples or promotional items and  offer a prize drawing. Attendees do not have to be present to win prizes.

Set up for the Business Expo inside will be Friday, Nov. 19 from 4pm to 6pm, or Saturday, November 11 from 7am-9am. Food trucks may set up only on Saturday between 7am-10am.

There will be a contest on the best decorated booths with top two receiving $50 checks to be used at one of the participating vendors. There is no particular theme, so they can decorate however they wish.
