Joplin's business expo in its second and last day


It's been a mixture of today and yesterday at the Joplin Business Expo.  

This year's theme is The Roaring 20's.  More than 200 businesses in the Four State area were showcased.  Many representatives from each business dressed up in 20's fashion.

"People dressed up in uniforms, costumes, flappers, everything you could imagine," says Ginger LaMar with the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce.  "So why not have a little bit of fun while you're working for two days, talking to lots of people.  67,000 people networking!"

LaMar also says it's important for everyone to network, including those who don't own a business.

"We need them to know what our community has for businesses, so they can network, they can do a better job of providing services and products to our community."

Barry Williams, who played Greg in The Brady Bunch, made a guest appearance at this year's event.
