DANVERS — Some 2,500 persons Thursday visited the North Shore Business Expo, sponsored by the North Shore Chamber of Commerce at the DoubleTree Hilton hotel. One hundred of the region’s top companies staffed exhibition booths to network, promote their businesses and interact with customers and peers.
The day started with a breakfast forum, “2019 Economic Forecast: The Markets and the Economy,” that featured wealth management professionals discussing trends and investment options.
Luncheon speaker was Steve DiFillippo, president and CEO of the Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse chain. The Lynnfield native discussed his business philosophy, “It’s All about the Guest: Exceeding Expectations in Business & Life,” which also is the title of his new book.
A networking reception concluded the event, with attendees mingling and enjoying food and drink.
