The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites business owners, managers and entrepreneurs to attend the 2019 Union County Means Business Expo at the Warinanco Sports Center in Warinanco Park on Wednesday, September 18 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Warinanco Park is part of the Union County parks system and is located in the Borough of Roselle, bordering Elizabeth and Linden.

“Last year the Business Expo hosted 80 vendors and 300 attendees, providing a valuable opportunity for networking and meeting peers in the business community,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “We are looking forward to another successful event this year.”

Now in its fourth year, the Business Expo provides a showcase for local businesses as well as an opportunity to network and grow contacts within the Union County community and beyond.

Since its inception in 2016, the Expo has grown to include a wide variety of businesses and entrepreneurs including service providers, retailers, banks, insurance, real estate, technology, consulting, marketing, legal, accounting, health, education, nonprofits and government agencies. The event is also popular with chambers of commerce and representatives from municipal and county government offices.

This year the Expo once again will feature raffle prizes at every table along with a grand prize of a Visa gift card. The popular “passport/autograph” contest will also return with additional prizes for attendees who collect signatures from every vendor.

Rounding out the event will be food tastings featuring the menus from Ashbrook Golf Course, Galloping Hill Golf Course and the Warinanco Sports Center.

As a service this year, the Business Expo is offering free onsite child care. The service is available for children ages 4-12 and will be provided by the professional staff of the Warinanco Sports Center Summer Camp. It must be requested in advance (walk-ins strictly prohibited) by filling out the online form at ucnj.org/ucmb when registering as an attendee or vendor.

Admission for individual attendees is free. Preregistration for all attendees is suggested but not required, except for those requesting child care. To register as an attendee, fill out the online Attendee Registration form below.

The vendor table fee of $100 includes a half-page ad in the program along with 10 VIP tickets for preferred clients. To register a vendor table, fill out the online Vendor Registration form below.
