Dozens of regional and local businesses and organizations will participate today in Business Expo 2018 at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.

“The continued support of our local businesses is always overwhelming and deeply appreciated – they make Business Expo a success every year,” said Expo 2018 Chair Tisha Arnold of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

Sponsored by the Pine Bluff Regional Chamber of Commerce and coordinated by its Business Expo Committee, the daylong event at the Pine Bluff Convention Center is filled with activities.

This year's Expo will have an overall theme of “Seas the Opportunities at Business Expo 2018.” Expo hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a “VIP Premiere” preview time from 9 to 10 a.m. During this time, the arena will be open exclusively to exhibitors and their most valued, invited customers and clients. Expo will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Kicking off Expo is the Business Expo Breakfast, sponsored by Simmons Bank. The breakfast is from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and will feature announcement of the Business Person of the Year, Non-Profit Business of the Year, Young Professional of the Year, and Redcoat of the Year.

Highway Commissioner Robert Moore, Jr. is the keynote speaker for the Chamber's 2018 Business Expo Breakfast. Commissioner Moore was appointed to the Arkansas State Highway Commission in January 2013. He is a former three-term member of the Arkansas House of Representatives and served as Speaker of the House for the 88th General Assembly.

Two special events also will be held, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., during Expo: a Health Fair and a Community Spotlight. Both events are open to the general public at 10 a.m.

The Health Fair, presented by Jefferson Regional Medical Center, will be located at the back of the arena and will feature several informative booths. Screenings will include cholesterol and bone density, along with many others.

Community Spotlight, sponsored by Highland Pellets and Southeast Arkansas College, will feature information on 18 charitable organizations serving Jefferson County and will be located in the West Concourse.

Relyance Bank will present the event's grand prize at the end of the day. Tara Promotional Products, Inc. will host the Exhibitors Hospitality Suite during Expo.

Billy Coble with Bluff City Radio will broadcast live from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The radio remote is co-sponsored by ATeam Staffing Services and Strong Manufacturing.

Green general admission armbands to Expo costs $5 each.
