More than 500 business professionals converge on Rapid City Tuesday for the annual Business to Business Expo at the Ramkota Best Western.
Area businesses got an opportunity to showcase their services and products. Close to 80 Rapid City Chamber of Commerce member businesses were represented at the event. Business professionals were able to network and meet people.
The chamber teamed up with New Rushmore Radio and the Technology Center to give away a HP laptop, and several other prizes.
Business owners agree that this is a chance to bring some fun into the business world.
Rob Grant of Western Dakota Insurors, says this event is a way to make insurance fun. His booth was disco theme complete with a disco ball, music and a dance floor. People could dance for a chance to win a prize. "Really its just opportunity for us to get down," said Grant.
Chrissy Rieb of the Hilton Garden Inn was just as excited about her booth. They had a Chinese New Year theme in honor of their intern who is from China and a new Garden Inn that opened in China. She says its a great opportunity to have fun and meet people. "I actually think its very important and not only that to get to know other people," said Rieb.
