UM Senior Vice President for Community Relations, Sarah N. Artecona welcomes the guests to the Business EXPO.

The UM Bank United Center Field House was the happening place to be on Tuesday, May 19th, for ChamberSOUTH’s 16TH Annual Business EXPO.

Presented by UHealth, this open and free to the community event offered local businesses the opportunity to exhibit and promote their products and services while reminding residents to “keep it local” and support our community businesses.

Hundreds enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres and signature drinks provided by local eateries; there was a taste for every palette, from the young and hip to the refined and sophisticated.

The BankUnited Center was an ideal location for the Business EXPO thanks to its proximity to the University Metrorail station and the various businesses located along nearby US-1. Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay welcomed visitors with its display of luxury vehicles. Jon Wilson, AKA DJ Jonny 5, “THE VOICE of the ChamberSOUTH Business EXPO,” kept everyone in high spirits, while All Star Event Photography captured the excitement of the evening (go to ).

The EXPO is made possible by the ChamberSOUTH Small Business Committee in partnership with the University of Miami.  Joe Natoli, UM Senior Vice President noted that “UHealth is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Business EXPO and looks forward to working with ChamberSOUTH member businesses to serve residents and visitors of the greater south Miami-Dade area.”  Additional partners included: Platinum Partner, Baptist Health South Florida; Gold Partners: First National Bank of South Miami, SpiderBoost Interactive Agency, 880 AM – The Biz, FASTSIGNS; Silver Partners: Credomatic Merchant Services, Morris & Reynolds Insurance, Minuteman Press – The Falls, The Collection Shop, MPS Credit Union, Dade County Federal Credit Union and FirstBank Florida.
