Linton-Stockton Chamber to host Buy Indiana Expo at French Lick

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

The Linton-Stockton Chamber of Commerce of Linton has been selected as the 15th Annual "Buy Indiana Expo" host by Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC Crane).

This year's event will be Tuesday, Oct. 25, at the French Lick Resort & Casino from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The purpose of the "Buy Indiana Expo" is to connect Hoosier companies to unique opportunities to expand their business through contracts with government centers.

Last year, NSWC Crane spent over $1.2 billion for products, goods and services, but less than 23% ($300 million) was spent with Indiana companies.

"The "Buy Indiana Expo" helps connect interested Indiana companies with key contact from NSWC Crane. Workshops will be conducted by NSWC Crane to educate businesses on how to do business with the federal government," former L-S Chamber Executive Director Cheryl Hamilton said in a prepared news release. "As a member of the Linton-Stockton Chamber of Commerce, we want to make sure you are aware of this opportunity to increase your sales by doing business with NSWC Crane"

This year's event will be held in the Valley Link and Learning Center.

"In order to set-up the room to accommodate everyone, please let us know if your booth needs electricity, is table-top or floor model," Hamilton stated.

Wireless internet is available for all vendors attending the Expo.

Exhibit space will include an 8-foot linen-clothed table and two chairs, if needed.
