In March 2015, Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz Vans, announced an investment of half a billion dollars in the North Charleston community. At the Sprinter Vans manufacturing facility, the company anticipates creating 1300 new jobs, in addition to the current production team which reassembles Sprinter and Metris vans shipped from Europe. The new production plant will supply the North American market with the next-generation Sprinter.
The North Charleston Business Expo will feature hundreds of business.
"The North Charleston Business Expo is an important avenue that we proudly offer to strategically connect our regional businesses," said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey. "Collaboration breeds success and innovation, and when our businesses are successful,
our city is successful. We are very happy to partner with our diverse group of event sponsors, all dedicated to strengthening the region's economy."
Exhibition space is still available, but dwindling. In order to remain inclusive to all businesses, from one-person operations and up, exhibition costs are kept well-below the average, starting at only $270. Last year boasted an early sell out, so businesses are encouraged to reserve space soon.
The North Charleston Business Expo is set for Thursday, April 21, at the Charleston Area Convention Center. The hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., followed by a networking reception from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Admission, parking, and Wi-Fi are all free.
