Our business expo is focused on vendors engaging the public to gain new customers, test their products and services, and form new alliances with other businesses. This event is for both profit making businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations engaging in their fundraising or information campaign.

The Durham Business Expo 2016 is fun. A combination of a trade show and craft show rolled up in one. Past events saw the business expo held for the first time outdoors at Oshawa City Hall Civic Square in 2014, then at the Taste of Durham International Food Festival at Oshawa Memorial Park in 2015, and this year at the Midtown Mall and Taste of Durham MINI MALL which is also located inside of Midtown Mall 200 John Street West, Oshawa.

The business seminars and networking activities held during the Expo will definitely educate you on how to do better business. Admission is free, parking is free. We encourage all vendors to help promote and invite the public and friends to attend the Durham Business Expo 2016.

This amazing 3 Day Event showcases and promotes the products and services of independent business owners from the Durham region and the GTA. Have fun while selling and presenting your business to the public and networking with other businesses.
