Eddie McBride on the Upcoming Lubbock Business Expo
Tuesday on KFYO Mornings, Eddie McBride with the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce joined Dave King and Matt Martin to talk about upcoming Chamber of Commerce events like the 2018 Business Expo, Leadership Lubbock, Lubbock's Young Professionals and their new Diversity Summit.
McBride started with the upcoming 2018 Business expo. "It's usually the largest business trade show on the south plains," McBride said, adding that the number of booths contain almost 200 different businesses and that a business who attends exhibits at the expo could expect leads for about 2-3 months. "We have had over five to six thousand people for the last several years, so I expect the same thing this year," he said.
They also discussed the Chamber's first ever Diversity Summit coming up on March 6th. "What we're celebrating is diversity, inclusion, and equity in the work place," said McBride. "We're focused on trying to change ideas and attitudes and educate folks on how to better their workplace conditions."
