This year’s Knightdale Chamber of Commerce business expo is adding a “Shop Local & Buy” component. In addition to the networking, face-to-face business interactions, and public walk-through, some vendors will be selling their local products from their booths on the Expo floor.

With this new option, there are specific requirements to ensure sales are locally-focused.

Each year, the Expo gives businesses in Knightdale, North Carolina and surrounding towns a chance to get their business in front of attendees and other area vendors.  Attending the Expo is free, and thousands of community members walk through.

To sign up for a booth, the “early bird rates” are $199 for a standard booth for Knightdale Chamber Members , and $399 per booth for non-members. If your business signs up after May 15, 2018, add an additional fee of $50 per booth.

This year’s business Expo is Thursday, June 14, 2018, starting at noon and continuing until 5pm.

The location is just across the Knightdale town line, in Wake Chapel Church’s Life Enrichment Center, located at 3805 Tarheel Club Road, Raleigh NC.
