The Business Expo Was A Huge Success
Over 200 local business's set up booths at the business expo hosted by the Abilene Chamber Of Commerce. Well over 5,000 were in attendance picking up everything from pens, pencils, note pads, re-usable shopping bags, popcorn, cotton candy, coffee mugs & t-shirts being handed out by those local business's participating in hopes the make more business connections.
I saw booths from the advertising industry to the City of Abilene Health Department and everything in between. I even tried to get hooked up with some medical supplies from Choice Medical supply. At one point I was overheard begging Nan Miller with Perini Ranch's Steak House for the chicken fried steak and an autographed cookbook from Tom Perini himself.
The Business Expo was a lot of fun because our booth was themed casino style complete with the video poker, slot machine and other Vegas flavored games. We made a lot of new friends.
