The Mattoon Chamber is always trying to find ways to help promote what Mattoon has to offer, not only to prospective businesses but also to you, the general public, who probably don’t know what really happens here on a day to day basis. The Mattoon Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Expo and Taste of the Expo has had 15 successful years being held at the Cross County Mall. Amy Davee and the Mall staff have been gracious hosts for all of these years. The Mall allows us to take over the concourses and have area businesses throughout the community promote the services and products they offer.
 
The Chamber plans on having at least a dozen Taste of the Expo vendors. Every year the Taste is the most popular part of the Expo and we are expanding the times, it will now be from 11:30am until 2:00pm. The Taste is where everyone in the community gets a chance to partake in delicious and delectable offerings showcased by our local restaurants. The variety and the quality of the food served is always amazing and I promise, you won’t leave hungry.
 
We will also be showcasing our local industries through the “Our Town” Gallery, in the Main Concourse. The Our Town Gallery is a showcase of locally manufactured products. We also cannot forget about the History of Mattoon. We will have multiple presentations of historical documents, pictures and digital displays.
