In a global economy, local commerce has to mean more than supporting the business next door. With online advertising, web conferencing and internet sales, today’s businesses face competition from far outside their geographic regions. To survive and thrive in the new competitive landscape while still supporting growth in the area, our definition of “shop local” needs to expand beyond businesses just down the street to the ones in a regional marketplace.

Enter the Get Linked Expo.

Showcasing close to 100 businesses, organizations, innovations, technologies, and future developments, the Get Linked Expo connects thousands of business executives, economic developers, public officials, chambers of commerce and decision makers from Delaware County to Marion County at one jam-packed event. GLE features exhibitors in 9 industry-idea categories presenting their products, services and ideas to more than 1000 anticipated attendees in one location. For area business owners the event will provide a unique opportunity to network with a variety of business and economic development representatives, get in front of key decision makers, and gather new ideas to help expand their businesses not just locally but across business clusters in 6 counties. Exhibitor categories are comprised of groups of complementary businesses and services and are limited to 10 to 12 exhibitors per category.

The event is the product of collaboration among multiple chambers of commerce, economic development and business partners representing Marion, Delaware, Madison, Henry, Hancock and Hamilton counties. Over 16 cities are represented.
