Southeast Ohio Tourism & Business Expo

The Gallia County Convention and Visitors Bureau and Gallia County Chamber of Commerce will join together to turn the CVB’s successful Annual Tourism Expo into the Southeast Ohio Tourism and Business Expo in 2015.

“I am very excited about this partnership,” said Chamber Executive Director Michelle Miller. “Developing a business expo was on my list of opportunities the Chamber could offer. Affiliating with the CVB as part of their Tourism Expo is a perfect opportunity to highlight all that is available in both tourism and business, here in Gallia County and the surrounding region. I want to thank CVB Executive Director Amanda Crouse for her willingness to work together for this event. I believe the best way to grow Gallia County is by working together, sharing resources and forming partnerships for the betterment of all.”

The Annual Southeast Ohio Tourism Expo is in its 7th year and continues to grow. It will take place at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College, Lyne Center on Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Both organizations share the same vision for Gallia County, so joining efforts only made sense. It will be the best of Southeast Ohio all under one roof,” said GCCVB Executive Director Amanda Crouse.
