It was the 14th annual Great Lakes Bay Regional Business Expo on May 4, 2010 held at the SVSU Ryder Center in Saginaw, Michigan.

The 2010 Business Expo had 161 booths this year. Expo 2010 also included, seminars, luncheon speaker, silent auction, Three Chamber Networking, Entertainment Stage, Special Attractions, Creative Ideas, Give-Aways and much more!

Diane Card, Expo Director, said "Considering the economy, the attendance was fairly steady from last year. We did have some vendors downsize from two booths to one, so we did have a slightly smaller floor layout than last year. All things considered, we were very pleased with the participation."

Card estimated attendance in the range of 2,300 to 2,500 visitors to the annual expo.

Card said, "The Booth to Booth Connections Expo just for Exhibitors the morning of the show was a successful new addition to the day." Card continued, "Along with the Silent Auction, the fun stage shows, including the fashion shows and the cooking presentations by Chef Craig Fiebke from Fusion 1 Cafe and the amazing "Hair James" by A Spencer Gellise Salon, I think we met our goal of offering something new and entertaining for our exhibitors and visitors."
