Plans are underway for the Hollywood Chamber’s 28th Hollywood Expo at the world-famous Avalon Hollywood on Thursday, May 5th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The annual function is a premiere networking event and provides exhibitors an ideal opportunity to showcase their business and make new introductions. “This year’s Expo will feature a Health & Wellness section to highlight the importance of how ‘business and wellness’ go together!” said Kaylee Kiecker, Executive Vice President of the Hollywood Chamber. “The popular event also coincides with Cinco de Mayo so we will be marking this celebration!”

The Expo attracts over 250 concierges, business owners, and Chamber members who are interested in learning what’s new in Hollywood. Additionally, special invites will be extended to top level travel planners as the event takes place during National Travel & Tourism Week. Invited guests will enjoy signature tastings from Hollywood hot spots such as Avalon Hollywood and 33 Taps. Cinco de mayo style margaritas and sangria will be presented by DLS Events and The Argyle Hollywood. Guests seeking sweet treats won’t want to miss the Donut Bar from Lucky Strike Live! or delicious cupcakes from Sweet-E’s Bake Shop.
