EXPO CONNECT is a business expo where businesses & individuals from the community can view the full spectrum of Chamber member businesses. This event offers the business community an opportunity to network with local professionals, engage with exhibitors, and discover resources for business growth.
It will showcase over 30 community businesses and allow for large-scale networking as well an opportunity for new products and services to be introduced in the Upcounty. In addition to a great community event, this is a great opportunity to support our local Germantown economy and focusing on shopping local.
The 2023 GGCC Fall Business EXPO is part of BlackRock’s Lil’ Pumpkins Festival!
This popular community event includes something for the whole family – a Biergarten, Artisans Market, Pumpkin Painting, Haunted Dance Party, Costume Parades, and Concerts! The day concludes with a family Halloween movie on the lawn.
And new for 2023 – GGCC’s Business EXPO and Taste of Germantown will be part of the fun! We invite B2B and B2C businesses to set up at the event to engage with the community, meet potential new customers, and have a fun day at BlackRock!
