A large crowd was in attendance for both days of the 25th annual Business and Industry Expo sponsored by the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Neosho.  
Almost one hundred booths were on site with area businesses showcasing their goods and services.  This year’s theme, “Game Show Classics,” added extra fun to the event. Most booths offered games of chance for no charge to participants for the opportunity to win additional prizes.  Thousands of dollars worth of items were given away as prizes along with the customary freebies offered by most businesses.  The Neosho Chamber of Commerce joined with GalaxSea Cruises and Tours to award a $1,000 travel voucher to one lucky winner.  Other prizes included $250 in Chamber Bucks for adults and $150 Chamber Bucks for kids from the Chamber.
New this year were multiple food trucks lined up outside Neosho High School for a Food Truck Frenzy.  Several vendors offered their wares including tacos, wings, wraps, and more.  Inside, some booths offered popcorn samples, free lollipops, cupcakes and more.
    Some booths, including Carol Jones-Red Carpet Realty, provided attendees with the chance to snap photos as well.
    A wide variety of businesses were represented at the popular annual event.
