Jacksonville-Onslow Business Expo being held at rec complex

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The Jacksonville-Onslow Business Expo is being held Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Complex.

The expo is designed to give businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services.

“Many times we’re in our office and we’re busy working and doing everything by email and digital these days,” Cindy Edwards, CEO of 17blue Digital Agency, said. “So it’s nice to get out in the community and actually shake hands, meet people and new folks and let them get to see us, who we are and what we do.”

More than 100 local and surrounding-area businesses were in attendance.

“You’d be surprised that people don’t know what’s in their community,” Chamber of Commerce President Laurette Leagon said. “I know that we have a lot of new businesses that just opened up in the last year or two so it exposes the general public to all of the different kinds of businesses we have in Jacksonville and onslow county.”

There were also giveaways and a food truck rodeo. Admission was free. This is the 23rd year of the event.
