Celebrating & Increasing

Business Awareness in Surry County 

BizFest is a business expo that includes exhibitors, a seminar opportunity and a business-after-hours event to celebrate and increase awareness of products and services offered or created in Surry County. We look forward to bringing our business leaders together to create more opportunities, increase your referrals in Surry County and support growth in our local economy.


Kick-Off Celebration:                    Begin at 12 PM

WorkForce Unlimited and The Small Business Center at Surry Community College presents Amanda Pearce and Marie Palacios with Funding for Good to facilitate an interactive session on Successful Partnerships. The title, "Competing or Collaborating? Keeping the Community in Mind and Dollars in Hand" perfectly describes the dilemma so many small businesses face today. Our goal will be to explore ways to grow your business through innovative partnerships across diverse business sectors. Many business owners struggle with finding new ways to grow their business, how to find needed services and how to engage partners to strengthen your work. Join us for this interactive session and learn new ways to think about partnerships that will help you stretch and grow in new directions as you and your business evolve.

Booths Open                                    1:30-6:00  

Business-to-business opportunities will take place on the show floor beginning at 1:30. This is an opportunity for exhibitors to showcase and increase awareness of their products and services to fellow business professionals.

Business-After-Hours                     4:00-6:00

Duke Energy and the Town of Elkin will host a Business-After-Hours to wrap up a great day of celebrating business with our exhibitors and business leaders from around the county.  The exhibitor booths will remain open during this time to allow additional networking opportunities for those who were unable to come over during the day.
