On October 18, the Brookhaven Business Advisory Council (BBAC) hosted its 12th Annual “Building Business In Brookhaven Expo” at Town Hall and broke all previous records for participating vendors and attendees. The event, which attracted over 500 local business people and 130 vendors, focused on business networking and included a trade show with booths highlighting local, regional and national companies that service businesses in Brookhaven Town. The expo was presented by the Brookhaven Business Advisory Council in partnership with the Town of Brookhaven, Town of Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency and the Brookhaven Chambers of Commerce Coalition (BCCC).
During the evening, vendors and attendees were interviewed for a special program which will air in the next few weeks on Brookhaven Cablevision Channel 18.
