To the Editor:
It was a great day for business at the Corridor Nine Area Chamber’s Annual Business Expo held on April 6 at the Doubletree Hotel in Westborough. Remaining true to its mission to create networking opportunities for business professionals, the Corridor Nine Expo was a bustling marketplace with 123 exhibitors and record attendance with 1,323 attendees! Celebrating its 25th year of the show, the Corridor Nine Expo continues to provide an unprecedented opportunity to network and interact with industry leaders from the Route 9/495 Region.
For the past quarter century, the Expo’s purpose and reason for being has been to connect people and businesses. That is why we take care to create an atmosphere and environment that makes it easy to network, explore partnerships and discover new opportunities. Due to the show’s longstanding history of success, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care has been the presenting sponsor for five consecutive years.”
Exhibit space was in high demand and sold out this year. The 4-hour show showcased the wealth of valuable business services that the Corridor Nine region has to offer. On display were all types of businesses including banks, non-profit associations, Worcester Regional Airport, restaurants, IT companies, hotels, marketing companies, health care industries, golf courses, office supplies, florist, moving and storage, law firms, entertainment services, and so much more.
Visitors were also treated to delicious samples of “eats and sweets” from the region’s local businesses, caterers, and restaurants including Wegmans, Uno’s Pizzeria & Grill, Not Your Average Joe’s, Creedon Catering, Chick-fil-A, Noodles & Company, Buffalo Wild Wings, The Willows at Westborough, Doubletree Hotel, Marlborough Courtyard by Marriott, and Employment Options.
