The Chamber Trade Show in West Chester is the region’s largest networking event

July 10—The West Chester—Liberty Chamber Alliance is hosting its 2022 Regional Trade Expo for local businesses to connect with other businesses and meet the customers they serve. The event, which has been held for more than 20 years, will take place at Lakota West High School on July 19.

The Regional Business Expo is the largest event between Cincinnati and Dayton for regional businesses to connect, organizers said.

“This is an opportunity for business communities here in West Chester and Liberty Township and along the growth corridor between Cincinnati and Dayton to meet new people and for businesses to gain new business opportunities,” said Joe Hinson, President and CEO of West Chester- Freedom House Alliance.

According to Hinson, the Chamber is expecting more than 100 vendors and expects more than 1,000 people to attend the event.

This year, the Regional Business Expo will feature Union Center Boulevard.

“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Union Center Boulevard, and we thought it would be a great way to honor Union Center,” Hinson said.

Union Center Boulevard provides access to many businesses and supports local commerce.

One of the companies featured at the Expo is Taxley Academy, located on Union Center Boulevard in West Chester Twp. Founded two years ago by Anisha Bailey, the Taxley Academy offers professional training in tax law and advice.

This will be Bailey’s first time at the Regional Business Expo, but she looks forward to connecting with the communities of West Chester and Liberty.

“We’re really focused on providing alternative career opportunities, and because this is going to be one of the biggest exhibitions in the region, we wanted to make sure we were available to people who wanted to know. more about the Academy,” Bailey said.

Bailey, who grew up in Cincinnati, encourages people to come to the event because she believes local small businesses are the heart of the community.

“If your community supports you, then you’re in a position where you can help the community grow and the community can help you grow, so it’s mutually beneficial for everyone,” Bailey said.

The Regional Trade Expo will take place on July 19 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Business owners interested in presenting can purchase a booth by calling (513) 777-3600. End of sales at the kiosk on Friday. The event is free and attendees are encouraged to bring business cards.
