Business expo set in Sidney

SIDNEY — The Sidney-Shelby County Chamber of Commerce is hosting its sixth business Expo from 3-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, at the Sidney Middle School, 980 Fair Road in Sidney. Ninety organizations operating in Shelby County are registered to exhibit.

According to Chamber President Jeff Raible, “This year’s Chamber Expo is being presented as both a business showcase and job fair. As such we believe Expo will be a tremendous opportunity for buyers, sellers, and job seekers alike to identify local resources for their products, services, and talents.”

Of the 90 participating organizations, more than 40 have advertised positions to fill, Raible noted. “We hope that by blending a job fair component into this year’s event, we can assist our members with identifying talented individuals to join and grow their organizations,” he said. “At the same time, we hope that this approach will expose job seekers to the vast array of upwardly mobile career opportunities in Shelby County.”

At Expo, one lucky attendee will win a gift card valued at $400 and redeemable at any Ohio State Park Resort for overnight stays, meals, and park activities. In addition, high school and college students attending Expo could win one of two iPad mini 2 tablets being given away. To be eligible the winner must visit a required number of booths as specified on the Chamber Expo Passport. Completed Passports should be turned in at a designated booth. A drawing will be held near the conclusion of Chamber Expo at 6:45 p.m. and the winner need not be present to win.

Chamber Expo is sponsored by Honda of America, Wilson Health, Ruese Insurance Agency, NKTelco, Faulkner, Garmhausen, Keister & Shenk LPA, Plastipak Packaging, Sidney Daily News, CenturyLink, and Edison Community College.
