When people talk about business these days, the image of a stuffy office with people working silently in boxed cubicles seems a bit outdated. Rather, the age of networking, social media and progressive thinking is upon us, and the 2013 Mount Pleasant Business & Community Expo, presented by the Mount Pleasant Business Association, is one of the best ways to get involved in the evolution taking place in your own backyard.
The expo was established in 2011, and this year’s version will certainly be the best so far. The expo committee, a passionate group of MPBA members who are dedicated to the cause, are ready to reveal some fun and interesting twists on this year’s event.
The doors open at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12, and plenty of vendors – from local eateries to financial planners and everything in between – will be ready to greet you and share the goods and services they offer. Take your time and sign up for the iPad giveway, scheduled for 4 p.m. You must be present in order to win, but you’ll want to stick around anyway for our special speaker from Google as well as the best part of the day – happy hour from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
“We wanted to make the expo more fun this year than it’s been in the past,” said expo committee Chair Brian Sherman. “It was a great business event in 2011 and 2012, but this year will be bigger and better. One reason is that our vendors will be able to continue to do business during the happy hour.”
Happy hour will include complimentary appetizers from local restaurants including Guadalupe Grill, Sticky Fingers, Jimmy John’s and Raising Cane’s. Beer and wine will be on sale to wash everything down, and you’ll be able to mingle with business owners and supporters to the sounds of the jazz trio Lyndsey and Friends. Earlier in the day, local radio personality Kelly Golden will be on hand with a live remote.
“The Mount Pleasant Business & Community Expo will be a great place for you to interact with some of the top businesses in the Mount Pleasant area and have fun at the same time,” Sherman added. “This is an event you won’t want to miss.”
