North Charleston Business Expo  is Thursday, April 21 @ 11:00am-6:30pm $0.00

Meeting Location: N. Charleston Area Convention Center
5000 Coliseum Drive

Program: When the City of North Charleston introduced the North Charleston Business Expo in 2015, the goal was to help businesses collaborate and grow. After a successful inaugural run, the Business Expo has expanded, joining with Mercedes-Benz Vans, LLC and Charleston County to offer targeted resources for businesses and employment seekers. In addition, exhibitor participants have increased to 200. Set for Thursday, April 21, 2016 at the Charleston Area Convention Center, the Business Expo will run from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, followed by a networking reception from 4:30 pm ? 6:30 pm. Admission, parking, and Wi-Fi are all free. Exhibition space is still available, but dwindling. In order to remain inclusive to all businesses, from one-person operations and up, exhibition costs are kept well-below the average, starting at only $270. Last year boasted an early sell out, so businesses are encouraged to reserve space soon. Prior to the Business Expo, Mercedes-Benz Vans (MBV) will host an exclusive Job Fair from 9:00 am ? 11:00 am. In March 2015, Mercedes-Benz Vans announced an investment of half a billion dollars in the North Charleston community with the anticipation of creating 1,300 new jobs, in addition to the current production team which reassembles Sprinter and Metris vans shipped from Europe. The new production plant will supply the North American market with the next-generation Sprinter. MBV is looking for a variety of Specialists now, and will look to hire Shop Floor team members in late 2017.
