Expo to include more than 100 booths; standard space still available

HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will host HCC Connect Panel + Expo + Mixer from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, in the Grand Ballroom at the Green Valley Ranch Hotel & Casino, 2300 Paseo Verde Pkwy. The event is open to the public.

During the event, the expert panel will take place from 4 to 5 p.m., and the seventh annual Henderson Business Connection Expo as well as a mixer will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. More than 100 booths — run by members and non-members alike — will be featured at the expo.

Promised to be the chamber’s top networking event of the year, the panel/expo/mixer combo is a new format for the chamber.

Scott Muelrath“We felt the new format would make this already successful networking event even more effective,” said Scott Muelrath, CEO and president of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. “We believe ending the day with a mixer will be a great way for people to re-engage with the new connections they made earlier in the day and further strengthen those new relationships before everyone parts ways.”

Hosted by the Henderson Development Association, the economic development arm of the chamber, the panel topic will be “Henderson Commercial Market Trends – Guess Who’s Coming To Henderson?”

Moderated by Barbra Coffee, director of Economic Development/Tourism for the City of Henderson, panelists will include: Darren Lemmon, senior office professional for CBRE; Kevin Budny, general manager for Forest City Enterprises/Galleria at Sunset; Mike Argier, development manager at Panattoni Development and John Ramous, SVP, regional manager, Las Vegas for Harsch Investment Properties.

More than 400 attendees are expected to attend to network with business owners representing many industries and companies in and around Henderson and the Las Vegas Valley.

Standard booth space for the expo is still available. (Premium spaces are sold out.) Cost is $325 for members and $500 for non-members. Access to electricity for the booth is an additional $50. To purchase booth space, businesses can visit www.hendersonchamber.com, call 702-565-8951 or click here.

“The expo is a good time to check in with new and existing businesses in the community,” Muelrath added. “Not only does it give other business owners the chance to meet people, network and research other companies in the area, it gives the Henderson Chamber an avenue to reach out to those businesses as well.”
