Pitt County Business Expo provides networking opportunity

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Thousands got the opportunity to learn more about businesses and organizations in the east at the 2016 Pitt County Business Expo. WITN is a proud sponsor.

Nearly 130 booths were set up inside the Greenville Convention Center from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday as more than 115 local businesses and organizations featured their products and services.

The Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce organized the expo so businesses could gain some exposure and consumers could learn more about available resources.

Robert LaGesse works for ECU Physicians and says it's been a great way to network and connect with the community. "I'm new to Greenville, I've only been here about eight months so this gives me an opportunity to meet some people in business in this community, so I think it's wonderful."
