ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Area Black Expo is wrapping up Saturday. Business leaders and people from the community attended free work shops all day at the Hilton Garden Inn.

It's part of Albany's first black expo of its kind. City Commissioner, Christopher Pike, organized the event which is open to all businesses.

Workshops covered a wide range of topics including: entrepreneurship, customer service, marketing, and making money despite a rough economy. Musical performers also came out for Saturday's expo.

"It's been a great week," said City Commissioner, Christopher Pike. "A lot of people have come through. It's been a great opportunity for Albany. We look forward to doing it again next year."

"This is a good way to network," said Metro Gazette Editor, Judith Hampton-Thompson. "We're able to talk to people to find out what they're thinking about the metro, including observations and suggestions. It's been really good."

More than 40 businesses played an important role in this year's expo. Commissioner Pike looks forward to organizing the second annual event next April.
