Applications are now being accepted for exhibitors at the 29th annual Hayward Business Expo, scheduled from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8 under the Grand White Tent in the parking lot at St. Rose Hospital, 27200 Calaroga Ave., Hayward.
“This event is one of the East Bay’s premier business networking and exhibitor activities,” said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a place where networking abounds and deals are made. That’s why it continues to attract attention after so many years.”
Applications are being accepted for the 25th annual class of Leadership Hayward, to begin this November. With 276 graduates since 1991, this accredited program develops leaders knowledgeable about the greater Hayward area and prepared to address complex social and economic issues. The program is particularly valuable to representatives of organizations and the business community, who learn about Hayward's economic development to enhance their own professional growth.

There will be door prizes, recognition of new chamber members, great food, and the chance to meet the Round Table Pizza team.
