Free Business Resource Fair Oct. 26

The 11th Annual Rogue Valley Business Resource Fair is scheduled for Saturday, October 26 at the RCC / SOU Higher Education Center, located at 101 Bartlett Street in Medford.

Sponsored by Rogue Valley businesses and state and federal government organizations, the free informational event provides industry and trade seminars, consultations, and other key resources for small business owners and those considering an entrepreneurial venture. Admission is free. Pre-registration and same-day registration is available.

Business and government representatives, including the Oregon Department of Transportation, will staff information booths in Exhibitors Hall.
