Chamber hosts purchaser's expo

The Greater Hillsboro Area Chamber of Commerce will host the third annual “Buy Hillsboro Purchaser’s Expo” next month.

Businesses belonging to the Hillsboro chamber will be invited to participate in two different ways. First, there will be the opportunity to purchase a table at the expo where businesses can display and/or demonstrate their products and services to purchasers from some of the largest companies in Hillsboro.

Second, the chamber will invite many of the area’s biggest companies to send members of their staff to the event — those who are responsible for purchasing and acquisitions — to allow them to discover the variety of merchants and suppliers in the local area.

“This is going to be an extraordinary opportunity to explore ways to buy and sell locally and to promote your business into companies you may not have the ability to access in any other way — as well as for the larger companies to find local suppliers for many of their needs,” said Shelly Olsen, the chamber’s director of special events. “It is a win-win for everyone.”

The Purchaser’s Expo will take place on Wednesday, April 23, at the Northwest Events & Environments facility at 2900 N.W. 229th Ave., No. 100, in Hillsboro. The event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
