The Saline County Business Expo, March 21 is looking like it will be a success according to Amy Daugherty, executive assistant for the Saline County Chamber of Commerce which sponsors the event.
"Last year we had 200-300 people at the event with 60 booths. We expect the same this year or better," she said.
"We are hoping to inform people of what Saline County has to offer in the way of services to their community."
The event will be held at Southeastern Illinois College Foundation Center, 540 N. Commercial St., Harrisburg from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., March 21 and will include exhibitors both outside and indoors.
Exhibitors are encouraged to sign up by Feb. 22 to secure the same booth they had last year. The final deadline for signups is March 11.
Booth space is free to food exhibitors providing free food samples.
No product sales are allowed.
Set up begins at 3 p.m.
"Booth space is filling up quickly," said Daugherty.
