Bedford Chamber of Commerce Hosting “Buy Indiana” Expo at French Lick in August, registration is open

BEDFORD – The 2021 Buy Indiana Expo, hosted by the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled for
August 31, 2021 at the French Lick Resort & Casino.

The purpose of the Buy Indiana Expo is to align Hoosier companies with unique opportunities to expand their business through contracts with Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane (NSWC Crane). The Buy Indiana Expo will feature breakout sessions and workshops to educate vendors on how to conduct business with the federal government. Other events include a golf outing on August 30th at the Donald Ross Golf Course and a trade show on August 31st.

Vendors at the Expo come from all over Indiana and the United States which will include businesses from a large variety of categories, such as manufacturing, electronics, non-profit organizations, real estate, and more. The Expo provides networking opportunities for the vendors, as well as purchasing opportunities for NSWC Crane.

Booths at the expo start at $325, making this event an excellent investment for businesses looking to expand through government contracting.

Last year’s event was postponed due to COVID-19, making this the 23rd year for the Expo. While Buy Indiana is historically a spring event, it has been pushed back to August due to the gathering restrictions that were in place earlier this year.
