Greater Lafayette Commerce Hosts 2022 Business Expo | Community

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The annual Greater Lafayette Trade Show took place Wednesday at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds.

The exhibition gives more than 120 exhibitors and vendors the opportunity to connect with each other. The goal is to help area businesses succeed and strengthen their relationships with the community.

The exhibit was busy all day, according to Chambers vice president Bob Schafstall.

“Grand Lafayette has grown and continues to grow over the years and it gives us all the opportunity to see what’s going on,” Robledo said. “And with the businesses so close in one area here at the fairgrounds, we also have the opportunity to network with each other.”

Schafstall said it all comes down to building community.

“You know, when you start talking about building community, we’re all in this together,” Schafstall said. “A lot of these companies are intertwined. They do business with each other. So the more people we can bring in [to] making those connections, the more community we can build. »
