About half of the booths already are sold for the annual Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce Business Expo – this year focusing on the future of technology – on May 21 at Quakertown High School.
According to Tara King, executive director of the Upper Bucks Chamber, there are plans for about 100 booths, with some key locations already reserved.
“Between community service groups, nonprofits, health care, legislators and businesses…we’re halfway sold [and] space is filling up fast,” King said of the event, to be held noon to 5 p.m. at the high school, 600 Park Ave., Quakertown.
The expo theme is Touch the Future of Technology, and organizers anticipate the bulk of the discussions could be about forms of communications, computer applications and ways to use social media in business.
“Each year the theme changes [and] we try to focus on some sector of our membership base; something of interest where we see gains or changes,” King said. “Whether it’s a [discussion about a] mobile app to collect contact information in order to generate leads for salespeople, a lot of networking goes on at the business expo.”
The event is open to any company seeking to promote its business in Upper Bucks County.
“We open it up to the public,” King said. “Non [chamber] members pay a higher fee.”

“It’s right there on the homepage in the [featured] event block,” King said.
