You don’t have to be a business owner to attend the first-ever Edmonds Business Expo set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, March 24 at the Edmonds Conference Center, 201 4th Ave. N. In fact, organizers are hoping that citizens will attend as well, so that they can see what types of services are available right here in Edmonds.
“We see this event as an effort to expose a wide variety of service businesses to the general public, opening their eyes to the fact there are a lot of options right here in Edmonds,” said Bob Rinehart from the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event in partnership with The Port of Edmonds, The City of Edmonds, Edmonds Community College and The Edmonds Conference Center.
So here’s your chance to meet local experts in a vast array of specialties — including My Edmonds News founder and publisher Teresa Wippel — and attend seminars presented by area businesses.
The My Edmonds News seminar is scheduled for 10:20 a.m. Saturday. The topic is: “The new frontier of local news in Edmonds: Why our small town has so many media outlets and how it can benefit your business (or nonprofit) through free publicity and paid advertising.” Attend the seminar and you’ll have a chance to win a free My Edmonds News coffee mug!

PCC Natural Markets will provide light fare and door prizes will be awarded every hour. Admission is free to the public. More information is available at the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce website.
