Upcoming Events
2020 Business Expo & Career Fair-RESCHEDULED
Due to venue availability, federal guidance, and out of an abundance of caution, the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce is rescheduling (again) our 2020 Business Expo & Career Fair again.
Originally scheduled for May 1   st   , we pushed the event to June in hopes that the social distancing guidelines would be updated to allow this event to happen. As we approach closer to June, we realize that to have a successful event of this size, the distancing requirements we would face would not be beneficial for our exhibitors and attendees.

The event is now scheduled for  August 27th    at the Fort Smith Convention Center. While this postponement is unfortunate, we take this step in order to best ensure we protect our community members, as well as industries in this region.

We hope you will join us in looking forward to the opportunity to highlight the many business services and career opportunities our region can offer.
