Texas Tech University will host the Small Business Expo from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday (April 20) at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center. The expo provides business owners with a forum for building strategic partnerships through a mutual exchange of information with government agencies and business representatives.
“I encourage small business owners, potential business owners and entrepreneurs, local, state and federal government agents and anyone who has an interest in nurturing small business to attend,” said Pat Simmons, section manager for HUB Reporting and Compliance from Texas Tech Procurement Services. “I believe attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to build strategic business partnerships.”
The expo will include door prizes, exhibitor samples and special guest appearances after the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce kicks off the event with a ribbon cutting at 8 a.m. Both parking and event admission are free to the public.
The Small Business Expo provides an opportunity to meet and network with 60 business and government agency representatives. Business owners and individuals are encouraged to attend presentations provided by representatives from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Northwest Texas Procurement Assistance Center and the U.S. Small Business Administration to learn about small and disadvantaged business programs with state and federal agencies.
