Lowcountry businesses showing off for the new year

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - More than 120 businesses played to the crowd at the annual Hilton Head Business Expo Wednesday.

It was a great chance to learn about the great stores and services right in your own back yard and a little something for business owners too.

"You know, a few things people might find here they're a little surprised about. First of all, they're going to find people they can talk to, network with, to help grow their business. They're also going to have a chance to check out the competition. Now really, how often do you get a chance to do that?" said Charlie Clark of the Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

It's not too late to check it out. The Expo will be open for business Friday from noon to 5 p.m. at The Westin Resort and Spa on Hilton Head Island.
