Its a known fact that the backbone of any economic community is small businesses and last year a lot of East Texas small businesses closed down due to the pandemic and other factors. Its something you hate to see, but one of the issues many small businesses have is the fact is most don't know how to present themselves to potential clients and customers, also, they don't know about resources that are availalble to help their business thrive, well we're going to change that.

The All New 107.3 Kiss FM and The Tyler Metro Chamber Of Commerce along with other great sponsors are proud to present The Small Biz Expo At The Metro! 3 incredible events packed into one day Tuesday September 21 from 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM at The Rose Garden Center located at 420 Rose Park Dr. in Tyler.

This amazing event kicks off with the Small Biz Procurement Seminar at 8:30 AM.The Tyler Metro Chamber of Commerce is inviting small businesses to meet buyers and purchasers looking for small businesses for statewide bid opportunities.
