BRISTOL - The 33rd Annual Home & Business Expo is â€śa good old-fashion home show,â€ť said Cindy Bombard, president and CEO of the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce.
â€śWhether youâ€™re looking for windows, a new kitchen or heating and air conditioning, our home show has a little bit of everything for homeowners,â€ť Bombard said. â€śThis is a great place for people thinking of remodeling their home to get some good ideas.â€ť
Over 200 exhibits will be featured in the two-day expo, including local and community vendors, crafters, organizations, businesses, museums and nonprofits, Bombard explained.
Those exhibits include many new healthcare organizations, the community hospital and urgent care centers.
Various city departments will also be present, such as the fire department and emergency preparedness, as well as the Democratic and Republican Town committees.
â€śIt will have the mom and pop businesses that have been dedicated, but also have some of those [businesses] that are larger,â€ť said Bombard, who noted that Xfinity and Frontier are some of those larger businesses.
â€śWe also have the environmental aspect,â€ť said Katie Dâ€™Agostino, marketing and communications director of the chambers. â€śWe have vendors with solar panels and environmentally safe cleaning products for your house.â€ť
