Last year over 4000 people attended the one-day event. Chamber Executive Director Pat Nowak states “The Chamber recognized several years ago that it is important to highlight regional businesses and the expo is the perfect venue. It gives all businesses a face in the community, is an effective use of advertising and allows interaction one on one with residents and other businesses.”

There will be important informative booths about cancer, strokes, surgical services, rehab, home health care and more.
The Taste of Sylvania is a great a part of “Showcase Sylvania.” Giant Eagle, local restaurants including Alexandria Diner and Treo; Gordon’s Food, Lickety Split and Sam’s Club offer fresh ideas for entertaining, dinner and healthy alternatives meals.
Part of the fun at the expo is the giveaways and great interactive games that many of the vendors bring.
