A lot of networking at Longview's 2013 Business Expo

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) -  From cell phones to soft drinks, Longview's Maude Cobb Convention Center was buzzing with the sound of business talk Tuesday, all for one reason, Longview's 2013 Business Expo.

    "It gives you the opportunity to really meet and talk to everyone and see what they've got new in the market."
  Linda Voyles says she attends the expo every year. It's an annual event put on by Longview's  Chamber of Commerce to create a marketplace for business-to-business activity and networking
."Every year there are new businesses we welcome to Longview and businesses that have been here for a long time," Voyle said.
    Chris Sigly with Bethany Home Healthcare says it's their first year at the expo.
 "This is a good opportunity for us to get our name out with the businesses essentially."
Saying it's not just the businesses who benefit, spectators do too.
  "Kind of like a live Google or a live yellow pages if you will. They get to meet some of the people that actually work at some of these businesses and they have a better understanding and a better idea of how they do business," Sigly said.
  With opportunities to attend  sessions on leadership, marketing and human resources.
  "If you haven't been here before, sign up for next year."
