The Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce is inviting local business people, workforce interests and those wanting to learn more about opportunities to its Industry Show next week.

It’s a great chance for contractors to meet industry leaders, organizers say.

The event runs from 2-6 p.m. Wednesday at Robert A. “Bob” Bowers Civic Center, 3401 Cultural Center Dr. in Port Arthur.

Attendees don’t have to be Chamber members to attend this free event, but you must register.

“We are excited for this event and look forward to seeing you,” Chamber President/CEO Pat Avery said. “The event is a great networking opportunity for the community.”

There will be more than 90 companies from all over the region showcasing their services. Those represented include businesses from hospitality, refineries, petrochemicals, LNG, suppliers, healthcare and much more.

Participating companies will have booths to display their business while the big equipment is displayed outside.
