Spotlight Event: Palmetto Business Expo

Since the Chamber’s inception in 1902, we have been in the business of helping businesses. Naturally over those one hundred plus years, the needs of businesses have changed but one constant remains- the need to connect.

We invite you to join business professionals from across the region as we gather for an exciting day of networking at the 2020 Palmetto Business Expo. This trade show has been created to bring thousands of attendees, potential employees, business owners, and company officers together to see how to further business interests, connect with one another, and showcase products and services for professionals and residents.

The Columbia Chamber began hosting Business Expositions in the late 1980’s. The Expositions became an annual event for at least a decade with participation and attendance outgrowing the previous year. Several years into hosting Expositions, a Business Equipment Garage Sale was added. The Chamber’s Partners and our business community have asked for an event of this nature again. We listened to those requests and are proud to introduce the 2020 Palmetto Business Expo.
