8th Annual MACCDE Spring Expo

Last Thursday I attended the 8th Annual Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce Spring Expo held at the Townsend Fire Hall.

The Fire Hall was filled with tables of more than 95 business owners ranging from AHDTV Network to Uncle Mike’s Ice Cream and Water Ice.  As a new member of the Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce I was there representing ABlake Enterprises, Social Media Management & Consulting and was able to share a table with my partners, Mike, Trisha and Ari Fox of Splash DesignWorks.

It was a beautifully bright day which drew a huge crowd of more than 1000 attendees, young and old alike including some very adorable young entrepreneurs who were sharing the table with their parents.

Balloons, Banners, Chair Massages, and Giveaways added to the excitement of this fun and festive family event.  I have lived in Middletown for over 23 years and had never attended an Expo which is now in it’s 8th year, I will however, never miss another one!

The 2016 MACCDE Spring Expo was not only a great place to network and connect with local businesses in the area, it was also a great venue to see old friends and meet new ones.

Sipping on freshly made lemonade from Bahama Breeze and noshing on a pasta and shrimp dish from Pat’s Select was the highlight of my day.  However, for the winners of the many door prizes ranging from a Flat Screen TV to a month of FREE food, I’m sure it was probably an even better one for them.

The little ones who stood quietly by their parent’s side were also treated to food and fun.  Goodies including slices of pizza, sweet treats of personalized cookies, cupcakes, and water ice.  Giveaways and chatskis such as glow in the dark pacifier necklaces, Frisbees and free passes to the Dover Skating Center also delighted them.

And for the bigger kids adults who also stood quietly in line they too were treated to sweet treats – samples of wines from Kreston Wine & Liquors and Crow Farm & Vineyard.

Obviously, there were too many businesses to name them all in this post, but here are the names and slides of just a few.  The full list can be obtained from the Chamber of Commerce’s website.

I had a great time taking pictures, recording a Periscope and collecting business cards.  I can’t wait to attend next year’s 9th Annual MACCDE Spring Expo!
