Joel Steele Centre transformed into 2018 Local Business Expo today, April 28

The Joel Steele Community Centre was already taking shape for the show on Wednesday of this week.

WINCHESTER — The Joel Steele Community Centre (Winchester Arena) has undergone a transformation into the site of the annual Local Business Expo, where just short of 100 exhibitors await the public’s visit today (Sat., April 28).

Organizers with the North Dundas Chamber of Commerce and the Township of North Dundas have released the interior layout and booth numbers for the nearly 100 exhibitors confirmed for this year’s show.

Occupying both levels of the large venue (upstairs and the arena floor), admission is free to the Expo featuring a variety of presentations and the opportunity to visit with the entrepreneurs in your area.

The event opens 9 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m., and the first 200 visitors through the door receive a swag bag with special offers and goodies from the participating vendors.
