The Southwest suburban hospitality industry served up a healthy portion of what it has to offer at the Daily Herald Business Ledger Hospitality Expo Tuesday at the Orland Park Civic Center.
More than 50 local exhibitors showed off their products and services to local business representatives, marketers and event planners.
Hundreds of attendees got to meet and mingle with businesses ranging from restaurants and caterers to hotels and meeting sites, to entertainment providers offering alternatives to the standard conference room meeting.
The Orland Park event was the first of three regional Hospitality Expos sponsored by the Business Ledger.
The second is the DuPage County Hospitality Expo, scheduled for Oct. 11 at Abbington Distinctive Banquets in Glen Ellyn.
The Northwest suburban Hospitality Expo is scheduled for Nov. 8 at Stonegate Banquets in Hoffman Estates.
