Russell’s Ramblings

Those who do not hear the music might think the dancer mad

Plans are underway for the 2013 Lake Norman Chamber Business Expo to be held at Davidson College’s Belk Arena. The region’s premier business trade show will be held Friday, March 8th from 11 am until 5:00 pm. Lake Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram and Randy Marion Automotive are the Presenting Sponsors of the event.

Bill Russell, president of the Chamber, cited many different reasons why the Expo has been a success for more than a decade. “Lake Norman is home to many unique businesses. These particular businesses meet the lake lifestyle that is attractive to the new homeowners, residents, and businesses moving to the Charlotte region’s dynamic market,” said Russell. Russell also cites the energy of the event, the attendees who typically frequent the area’s largest business trade show and the special events created by the Expo’s steering committee.

The Chamber is now seeking sponsors for the event. In addition to the Presenting Sponsors, Gold Sponsors include MI Connection, Lake Norman Magazine, and Presbyterian Hospital Huntersville. The Chamber is working to secure the marketing partners which bring tremendous exposure to the event along with Silver and Bronze sponsors. For more information about sponsorship in the 2013 Lake Norman Chamber Business Expo contact Bill Russell at the chamber at 704-892-1922 or e-mail

“We will be contacting this past year’s sponsors to renew for the event. They have the first right of sponsorship in the 2013 event. We hope to secure our sponsors on a first come-first serve basis,” said Russell. A benefit to all sponsors includes the opportunity to direct their booth placement.

General Business Booths are expected to be released in early December and are limited to the first 165 businesses. If you are interested in working on the Chamber’s signature event, the next meeting is Wednesday, November 28th at 3:30 pm at the Chamber.
