ACCESS Health Expo

For the fourth year in a row, the Hillsborough/Orange County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce to host the Primetime Business Expo, one of the county’s largest business expos. 

This year, for the second time, the expo will feature an ACCESS Health Expo section, which will provide information on open enrollment and healthcare.

This expo, slated for Thursday, Nov. 8, allows Chamber members share information about their products and services with fellow business leaders.

“We believe it's valuable to the membership of both Chambers to work together in offering Orange County's largest expo,” said Kim Tesoro, Hillsborough/ Orange County Chamber of Commerce CEO. “Members have opportunity to network outside of their usual circles, and to be very visible to the general public.”

Last year, the Primetime Business Expo had over 400 attendees covering information on everything from pet training to business coaching to health and wellness, the Hillsborough/ Orange County Chamber website notes. 

Numerous businesses will have tables set up to help passerbys learn about their services. On hand will be representatives with Piedmont Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, UNC and affiliated providers, and various Chamber members who offer wellness services. 

“Access Health was created last year in response to concerns that government funding for open enrollment information sessions had been cut back,” Tesoro said. “Several major investors in this Chamber asked about offering an information session for our members and our residents.”

This year, the Chamber saw a way to expand the annual expo and to reach more people by integrating the ACCESS Health expo with Primetime.

This event will be held on Nov. 8 from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at University Place located at 201 S Estes Dr. in Chapel Hill. Admission is free.
