“Resource Fair” for local small businesses being planned for May 19

The City of Knoxville and the County of Knox are joining with a group of local economic development partners to host what is being called a “Resource Fair” to connect small business owners with business experts to address a range of topics and concerns that have risen as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Organized by the two local governments along with the University of Tennessee and the Knoxville Business Support Network, the May 19 program is designed to provide small business owners the opportunity to interact virtually with experts and professionals from across their organizations and throughout the community. The event will be powered by the Lunchpool platform that has been used for a number of recent Knoxville Technology Council workshops.

The two-hour event, which will begin at 9 a.m., will provide resources for responding to COVID-19 challenges, an overview of available opportunities, and a glimpse of how you can position your company to be stronger on the other side of the crisis.

To ensure that the “Resource Fair” meets the needs of small businesses, the organizers are asking for input from the target group via completion of a short survey (click here).

More specific details, including pre-registration, will be coming soon.
