April 21st was an amazing day for the Oceanside business community. Several hundred local business professionals and community members gathered at the QLN Conference Center for the Annual Oceanside Business Expo. Exhibitors explained their products and services to potential customers. Restaurants and caterers had a captive (and hungry) audience that was excited to try some of Oceanside's best cuisine. Oceanside's growing brewery scene was on display as several local brewers, along with Beach House Winery offered tastings.
For the first time, the event outgrew the main exhibit hall at QLN and expanded into a second room, as presenting sponsor, Green Oceanside Business Network put their members and their services on display.
The Chamber staff, along with many dedicated volunteers, found it very rewarding to see so many people coming together under one roof to make new friends and business connections.
There is a lot more I could say, but photographer Marcy Browe did such a great job capturing the essence of the event, that I'll just let the photos speak for themselves.
