Visit the Rutland Row at next week’s Vermont Chamber Business & Industry EXPO at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center on May 25 & 26, 2016. The annual show is organized by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and draws nearly 200 exhibitors and an audience of 3,000 business people.
This year, the Rutland Redvelopment Authority (RRA) organized Rutland area businesses to create a “Rutland neighborhood” at the show, where visitors can learn about what makes our region unique, including its affordable and available commercial and industrial real estate. REDC and the RRA collaborated on a Rutland real estate brochure (see below) that highlights selected properties around the county and directs readers to REDC’s site selection tool.
The first day of the EXPO features business-to-business networking, where members of the Rutland Row will promote Rutland’s businesses and revitalization efforts to other exhibitors.
Day two of the EXPO is free and open to the public and includes presentations and seminars (to attend free, pre-register here).
Castleton Polling Institute’s Rich Clark will speak at the Premier Business Luncheon, “The Era of Big Data,” and REDC’s Sara Gilbert will speak on a panel titled “Leveraging the Millennial Advantage.”
REDC and the Rutland Young Professionals will join the Rutland Row at Castleton University’s booth, as all three organizations are co-located in Downtown Rutland.
