Chamber Business Expo sets record number in attendance and vendors

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) held its annual Business Expo presented by FNBC Wednesday in the gymnasium at the Batesville Community Center and featured a record number of vendors.

“Our event grows every year, but this year was the icing on the cake. Without our sponsors and vendors, this event would not be successful,” a BACC rep noted in a press release. “We owe our attendance of over 2,000 visitors to their willingness to invest in these opportunities for our businesses and the community at large. Visitors sampled local cuisine, browsed new furniture, checked out the newest line of mowers, and learned more about what our community businesses offer.”

The Network of Community Options vendor booth was selected as the most festive booth design. Their staff was dressed and in character as the cast from the 1980s sitcom “Mama’s Family.”
