Statewide Networking Reception After Party for all Expo Exhibitors and Attendees (Hotel Atrium)
The Vermont Chamber Business Expo is the region’s largest business-to-business trade show and is organized by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. This annual event hosts over 150 exhibitors, showcasing the latest in cutting edge products and services for the 2,000 business people who visit the show.
Expo also features a wide variety of special events and seminars, providing Expo attendees with valuable networking and educational opportunities. Featured events include the Senator Leahy Business Breakfast and the newly expanded TD Bank Innovation Institute – Educational Seminars (7 additional seminars added for 2018!). Brought back by popular demand, the statewide networking reception is also a not to be missed networking opportunity.
Expo features a two-floor trade show designed for optimal visibility for all exhibitors. Pre-Scheduled B2B meetings are conducted throughout the day on the trade show floor. Access to this B2B meeting platform is available exclusively to exhibitors.
History of EXPO
This trade show was created in 1985 for CEOs, business owners and managers, senior level decision makers and purchasing agents. The products and services respond to virtually every requirement needed for business operations, from structural and building needs to the very latest in infrastructure telecommunication and business technologies. Expo has experienced a number of face lifts throughout its 30+ years, transitioning from a manufacturing show to business-to-business trade show featuring the latest technological and innovative trends in the Vermont business climate. Expo originally made its home at the University of Vermont’s Patrick Gymnasium, but has since relocated to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Burlington (formerly known as the Sheraton) to accommodate continued growth of the show.
