REDMOND, OR -- The 19th annual Central Oregon Business Expo takes place in Redmond Wednesday.
Karen Sande, with the Redmond Chamber, says hundreds of regional business owners will be there to network with each other. She tells KBND News, "We’re going to have also different workshops happening throughout the day: Cale Peterson is going to be talking ‘result driven communications,’ we’re going to have a panel discussing ‘creating an attractive work culture,’ then John Meyer with Edward Jones is going to be helping people with retirement."
Vendors will also be there to showcase their local products and services. And, Sande says, "This year, we’re really excited that we’re adding a job fair to it. There’s going to be seven or eight companies now; Mosaic Medical will be out there, the US Post office will be out there because they’re hiring also. So, there’s a whole bunch of different combinations, if you’re looking for a certain type of job." The job fair, business expo and various workshops are free and begin at 1 p.m.
Redmond Mayor George Endicott will deliver his Annual “State of the City Address” during a luncheon just prior to the event at the Deschutes County Expo Center. That luncheon begins at 11:45 a.m. and is $17; RSVP is required.
