The expo allows vendors to boost and promote their businesses in hopes of gaining new customers while connecting with the community.
The Rockford Chamber of Commerce, Bay Blazers and Business Builders will host the annual Rockport Business Expo from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at the Fulton Convention Center. This year, according to Sarah Solis, secretary of the Business Builders Committee, approximately 70 vendors are expected to participate. The event’s theme is “Flip Flops and Palm Trees.”
Vendors come from a wide selection of Rockport businesses. All are members of the Rockport Chamber of Commerce and the vast majority of them are from Rockport. But they represent everything from health care to clothing stores. According to Solis, “It’s a super-eclectic group of businesses – a combination of anybody who provides a service or a product.” Food vendors will also be on site.
The event is free and open to the public. Its main purpose is to allow people from Rockport and all over the greater Corpus Christi area and beyond to become more familiar with the many businesses within Rockport. “We want to kind of reach out to the outlying areas to let them know some of the businesses we have in Rockport,” Solis said.
Additionally, the event provides both vendors and visitors “a fabulous opportunity to network with business and community leaders.” The Expo will also allow vendors to boost and promote their businesses in hopes of gaining new customers and opening new markets while connecting with the community.
Event sponsors include Attitudes & Latitudes, Eling Coastal Real Estate, Cornerstone Home Health, ServiceMASTER Restore, Schoppe Insurance Agency, Lee Construction Services, Inc. and Full Circle Printing.
