Thousands turn out for Women’s Expo

An exciting and colorful array of goods and services are on display at the 16th annual Tri-Cities Women’s Expo this weekend at MeadowView.

KINGSPORT — Thousands of women, some of whom even brought their husbands or boyfriends, descended on MeadowView Convention Center on Saturday for the 16th annual Tri-Cities Women’s Expo, sponsored by the Kingsport Times-News and the Johnson City Press. 

The festivities kicked off at 10 a.m. and ran until 6 p.m. on Saturday. Events pick up again Sunday from 1 until 6 p.m.

Hundreds of booths are spread throughout the conference center. There is also a large stage right in the center ready to host everything from demonstrations to fashion shows.

“Our goal is to provide the Tri-Cities a venue that allows them to directly promote to an eager and curious audience,” said Traci Williams, event marketing director. “Exhibitors have a great platform for increasing sales, attracting new customers and sharing information.” 

There is a wide range of products on display throughout the expo. One booth offers Pampered Chef items while another hands out samples of food to the people in attendance.
