BANGOR - Dozens of businesses turned out for an annual expo Friday at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.
Going on its fifth year, the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce holds this expo to help various businesses reach out to the community.
Several educational seminars were held on a variety of topics from starting your own business to marketing.
It was also an opportunity for groups to learn more about one another.
"It's a great networking opportunity and a good way to connect with other businesses," John Porter, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, says. "Accountants, records management people, building management people can all find other business clients here and make those connections within the community."
Cianbro, Geaghans, and Season's were just a few of the businesses there.
