Business Expo 2019

WHERE: Hastings City Auditorium | Hastings, NE

DATE & TIME: September 24 | 3 - 7 pm


We are hosting our first community-wide Business Expo and you're invited!

It is about local jobs, but it's so much more than that. Stop by between 3 and 7 pm to visit with reps from the Hastings' business community. Learn about what they do, who they are, and if you're looking for a job, they can discuss that, too. Better yet, think of it more as a social because it is from beginning to end!
