Join the Chamber for "Ybor at Work"

The Ybor City Chamber Presents Business Expo


(Tampa, Florida)  The Ybor City Chamber of Commerce presents its winter edition of Business Expo: Ybor at Work on Tuesday, February 12th in the Siboney Room of the Columbia Restaurant. This biennial Business Expo features over twenty exhibitors representing all kinds of business products and services from office furniture to financial services. One such firm is Ali's Specialties, a promotional product agency that has recently moved to Ybor. They will have a display of promotional items that make great corporate give-a-ways.


The Chamber hopes to encourage more foot traffic for exhibitors, while attracting more new member prospects. "This year we are making 'Ybor at Work' more accessible for guests," said Richard Chad, Vice Chair of Membership. "By providing a "light lunch" rather than our usual luncheon buffet, we have been able to substantially lower the cost for attendees." Admission for the Business Expo is only $15 and includes soup, salad, sandwich and beverage. The Expo begins at 11:30 AM and concludes at 2:00 PM.


Gold Sponsors include GTE Financial and Hillsborough Community College. Grimaldi Insurance/Italiano Insurance and PrimePay are Silver Sponsors for the event. Tampa Bay Business Journal is the Media Sponsor again this year. To register for Business Expo: Ybor at Work please go to and click on Business Expo. For more information call Events Coordinator, Anna Ramos at 248-3712 x22.
