The Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce Business Expo goes on for one day every January at the Oshkosh Convention Center. Over 100 businesses set up booths and offer a great way to make new connections, broaden your companies brand awareness, and learn more about area businesses and upcoming job openings. Several activities are offered by exhibitors for attendees throughout the day and the evening finishes out with a social, Business After Hours, from 5:00 pm. to 7 p.m. This is a great networking opportunity for attendees and exhibitors alike!
