Business members throughout the community, gathered together in the halls of UVSC, on Friday, April 14, to create the largest turnout ever for the 10th Annual Utah Valley Business Expo. This year, nearly 1 70 businesses in Utah County set up displays at the Expo, tc inform the public of their services. UVSC was chosen as the host this year because of the need for the extra space. Last year the Expo was held at Provo Park Hotel, but they had to turn away more than 60 exhibitors due to the lack of space. "The Expo has grown considerably since the first year," said Brett Barrett, chairman of the Business Expo. Barrett recalled that when he was elected five years ago as the chairman of the Expo, they only had $2,500, no sponsors and no affiliation. In 1989, the Expo committee voted unanimously to become part of the ProvoOrem Chamber of Commerce. The name was then changed from the Utah Valley Business and Industry Fair to the Utah Valley Business Expo. "My first year on the committee, I was calling frantically one and two days before the event pleading with nonprofit organizations to just come and sit behind a table to fill up the Expo," said Barrett. "We had only 50 exhibitors that year." After that year, Malcom Beck, the longest standing committee member, went out and recruited sponsors for the Expo. Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and International Health Care became sponsors with $900 a year. This year, The Deseret News was the primary sponsor. Other sponsors include IHC and Enrich International, the latter donating $2000 towards a business scholarship offered by the Expo this year. "This year we are literally twice as big as last year," said Barrett. "Our budget has allowed us to spend appropriate amounts on tickets, signs, newspaper and radio advertising."
