The 2014 FREE “Showcase Sylvania” Business Expo will be held on March 22, 2014 from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM at the Sylvania Sports and Exhibition Center at Tam-O-Shanter, 7060 Sylvania Avenue, Sylvania, Ohio. This is one of the largest in NW Ohio and features representation from OVER 175 area businesses.

Last year over 4200 people attended the one-day event. Chamber Membership and Development Manager Laura Glover 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.”

New this year is the Lowe’s Home Improvement Zone which will be providing home and outdoor ideas for all spring projects. Lowe’s professionals will also be on hand offering advice and how-to tips.

Additionally, this year the ProMedica Health Pavilion is offering free blood glucose screenings, BMI and body fat screenings, blood pressure screenings, cholesterol and bone density screenings. There are informative booths about cancer, strokes, surgical services, rehab, home health care and more from The Flower Hospital and Paramount.

The Taste of Sylvania is a great a part of “Showcase Sylvania.” Giant Eagle, as well as local restaurants will 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. This year the expo again has designed a children’s area featuring several local child care centers, and organizations. Entertainment will include local and regional groups.

Free parking for the expo is on-site at Tam-O-Shanter as well as at Olander Park, Southview High School and Boulevard Church of Christ.
