The newly named Northwoods Entrepreneurs’ Club (formerly the I&E Club), in association with the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce, Grow North Regional Economic Development Corporation, Nicolet Area Technical College and UW-Extension, is sponsoring the fifth annual Northwoods Business Expo tonight, April 18, from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Northwoods Banquet Center, 1540 Pueblo Drive in Rhinelander (behind Hodag Lanes).
The 2011 event welcomed nearly 100 exhibitors and hundreds of community members as they poured in over a three-hour period to view business exhibits. Again this year, there will not be any general admission fee.
The expo is an opportunity for small businesses to make a sale, find a new prospect, share employee needs or find interested people who can help in the growth and expansion of a business.
This year there will be three cash prizes awarded of $500, $300 and $200, provided by Grow North Regional Economic Development Corporation. Prizes will go to the top three exhibitors with the best business idea and/or invention.
