Come out to meet and support our businesses, enjoy beverages and food samples and learn about products that can make your business run more smoothly from banking, to printing, to promotional products, healthcare options and more.

Welcome to EXPO 2011 O n behalf of our Chamber’s Board of Directors, Small Business Advisory Council, and staff, we invite all St. Tammany News Banner readers to visit today’s business EXPO. From 3–7 p.m., nearly 90 businesses from throughout Mandeville and Covington will be exhibiting their products and services in the former location of Linens ‘n Things in the River Chase Shopping Center, in the same complex as Belk Department Store. This new location was the idea of leaders of our S.B.A.C., led by Paul Myers of Metairie Bank. Loyal Chamber member and exhibitor, Larry Rolling of LA Logos & Promos, worked with our staff and the staff of Stirling Properties to secure this first time new location for EXPO. Held for the past ten years at the Castine Center, this new location provides an opportunity for more walkthrough traffic than ever! Our trade show has been popular for attendees and results driven for our exhibitors for over 15 years. Testimonials, survey results and repeat exhibitors are

the reason for the staying power of our premier annual business support event. EXPO is FREE for attendees! Come out to meet and support our businesses, enjoy beverages and food samples and learn about products that can make your business run more smoothly from banking, to printing, to promotional products, healthcare options and more. There will also be giveaways and door prizes! See the complete list of exhibitors throughout this special issue! There are many, many ways of marketing and advertising methods a business person can choose to market their products and services. The original tried and true method—face to face—is still the most effective. So, congratulations to today’s EXPO exhibitors. You have made a wise decision. You chose to be here today, in one place, under one roof, to meet more potential customers face to face, than you could in nearly any other venue. As St. Tammany grows, so grows our businesses! - Lacey Toledano, C.E.O.
