Near record crowd turns out for trade show with some twists

The annual Spring Trade Show hosted by the Sun City Center Area Chamber of Commerce is a wrap, and organizers couldn’t be happier with the way it went.

“I was thrilled with the turnout,” said Lynne Conlan, the chamber’s executive director. “It was one of the best spring events ever, and our members were pleased with the traffic. If you weren’t there, you really missed out.”

In addition to its wide array of vendors, this year’s trade show featured former Major League player and coach Lou Piniella; “treasure hunters” from the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Unclaimed Property; and someone representing the Tampa Bay Rays and its efforts to stay in the area.  

That combination of draws brought out a near record of attendees and many new vendors.

“We’re already looking forward to our Fall Business Expo,” Conlan said.
