There will be over 40 different businesses and services on hand to discuss their operations with attendees. Businesses signed up for the event range from financial services, retirement residences, realtors, to home builders and more. KROS Account Executive, Gary Determan, said, “The type and variety of businesses varies each year which means that if you’ve been here before, you should come back and learn more.”
