Even with the snow and ice, they’re still planning to forge ahead with the first-ever Cowlitz County Regional Business Expo, running from 11 am until 4 pm today at the Regional Conference and Events Center. More than 100 businesses are scheduled to take part in this event, intended as a showcase of products and services, along with networking for those who are taking part. Because of the conditions, exhibitors are being given some extra time to get set up, so the timing could be delayed by about an hour. After the Expo itself, an Afterhours Reception for exhibitors and guests, with more than 400 people expected. Contact Cowlitz County Tourism at 577-3137 or the Kelso-Longview Chamber of Commerce for additional information.
