The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce and Northwest Arkansas Human Resource Association (NOARK) announced this month a new partnership that will benefit businesses both large and small in Northwest Arkansas. The Chamber, its long-time business conference partner World Trade Center Arkansas, and NOARK have come together this year to form the newest business event in the region - NWA BizCon.

Merging of the Business Expo with SuperCon

NWA BizCon merges the Chamber's former event, NWA Business Expo, with NOARK's SuperCon event

to create a brand new, innovative event for local businesses and entrepreneurs. The inaugural event will be held at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers on Tuesday, November 1. Judith Tavano, NOARK Board Member and SuperCon Chair, said about the new event, "NOARK is delighted to be joining forces with the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce and its partner World Trade Center Arkansas to combine these two events into one exciting new business conference and expo. This new partnership enables NOARK to continue its mission of being thought leaders in management and HR in NWA."

Raymond Burns, President and CEO of the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce, said, "The Chamber is very excited about this partnership and working with such a respected organization as NOARK to offer a brand new event for our members. We are always striving to make our programs better in order to have the greatest impact possible on the local business community. This new partnership is an excellent example of that."
