Hosting 175 business vendors, live entertainment and food, the Woodbury Community Expo offers excitement and use for the entire community. We spoke with the president of the Woodbury Area Chamber of Commerce Laurie Staiger about what the upcoming event entails.
Woodbury Magazine: Tell us more about the Woodbury Community Expo.
Laurie Staiger: It’s great exposure for businesses to build connections and develop new clients. [For attendees], if you’re new to the community, if you’re looking to keep your kids busy or an empty nester looking to repair the house that your kids destroyed, we have vendors for all areas of the community.
WM: What are you most looking forward to about the expo?
LS: Our community believes in the value of shopping local, so it will be really fun to see the consumers get re-engaged with our business owners and operators in our own community.
WM: Will there be any event adaptations made due to COVID?
LS: We moved to HealthEast Sports Center for more space. We intend to have a one-way exit to keep people going in one direction and [vendors] will be a little further spaced out than in the past.
