Entrepreneur Expo

USUALLY each year, WESO hosts a combined tradeshow and networking event to help you discover the extraordinary variety of  entrepreneurs in the Rogue Valley. WESO offers this special event to share what its members and other business owners have to offer. It’s also a great networking and shopping opportunity.

Our 18th annual Expo is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 15, 2022, at the Ashland Hills Hotel Convention Center in Ashland (due to the closing of the Inn at the Commons in Medford). This is a new venue for us but the space size is similar and is a beautiful location.

FREE ADMISSION! (Vendor tables at additional cost.)

Businesses represented range from gift items to office support to food items, jewelry, wellness products, skincare and much more. It's a great opportunity to explore the exhibits and find out more about our vibrant community group.

You can be a part of this annual event! Both members AND non-members can be exhibitors at the event. It's your chance to network, show your stuff, make new contacts, and make sales. And, it's a lot of fun!

Prize drawings make this event truly exciting.

Cash Prize, too! - Play our Scavenger Hunt game and you might win a cash prize. To play, find a list of items on vendor tables. Kids love this game!

If you're a businessperson, bring your business cards and network, network, network!

This event also benefits Community Works - Dunn House Shelter which provides a safe refuge and support services for women and children to help them escape from domestic or sexual abuse, stalking, trafficking and date violence. Click here to learn more.

Raffle to Benefit Community Works: Dunn House Shelter

Although we had to cancel our 2020 Expo due to COVID-19, we had already collected great prizes for our raffle to benefit Community Works: Dunn House Shelter. Our donors enthusiastically supported continuing the raffle so we set up online ticket sales and it was a fabulous success. Between raffle ticket sales and other donations, we raised $1,625.

Thanks go the following businesses that donated prizes to our raffle.

Special thank you goes to the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians for a very generous monetary contribution to the fundraising.
