Thursday, Aug. 24
The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership is hosting the 2017 Erie Homecoming and Business showcase. In a modern world where networking is critical to both professional and personal success, showcases like these are a tremendous asset. The day is geared to "stimulate conversation, new connections, and re-engage highly talented people that grew up here."
Erie Homecoming will feature panels of experts telling their breakout stories and diving deep into their particular areas of knowledge. The speaker lineup is comprised of former Erie residents, as well as individuals who are currently at the forefront of new and exciting developments here in town. Presenters include National Public Radio anchor Jack Speer, Joe Blone from Whitehall Group, celebrity sports artist Kevin John, and iHeartMedia's Mark Furhman.
The event doesn't stop there, however. It also features the Business Showcase, a professional expo where "all attendees will be able to meet Erie businesspeople and learn more about Erie's vibrant business community, our regional businesses' capabilities, and their passion for the future of the Erie area."
At the Business Showcase, more than 100 local businesses will gather together for another great opportunity to network and get their names out there. — Austin Mitchell
