Jonesboro Regional Chamber Preparing for Business Expo '04

MARCH 10, 2004 - Posted at 4:02 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - Final preparations are being made for the 15th annual Business Expo on the Arkansas State University campus. 

Former ASU Track Coach Guy Kochel will be the keynote luncheon speaker for this year's event at the Convocation Center.  Kochel spent 17 years as head track & field coach at ASU.  He has been inducted in the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, Arkansas Track & Field Hall of Fame, Arkansas High School Coaches Hall of Fame and the ASU Hall of Honor.  He is currently the First Vice President and financial adviser at Morgan Stanley of Jonesboro.

Organized by the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by KAIT, the expo is the state's largest business-to-business exposition.  More than 280 brought their goods and services to the public at last year's show.

"A limited number of booths are still available for purchase," said Chamber Special Events Coordinator Tammy Branyan.  "They will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis."

The public is invited to the Expo on Wednesday, April 21, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Booths cost $350 for Chamber members and $450 for non-members.  Registration forms available at the Chamber office at 1709 East Nettleton Avenue, or on the Chamber's website at www.jonesborochamber.org.
