Jewel's Unique Services & Events will be seeking to make a major imprint on local business when it stages its inaugural one-day Technology Business Expo 2015 at the Montego Bay Community College this Saturday, starting at 9 a.m.

"The primary aim of the expo is to provide those entrepreneurs and companies with an excellent opportunity for networking with others, expanding their respective businesses and re-establishing business links geared at generating income," said the Reverend Marc Mullings, founder and CEO of Jewel's.

The event, which has been endorsed by Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, minister of state in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, will feature corporate companies and entrepreneurs showcasing goods and services in addition to presentations from government officials and corporate moguls.

"We are anticipating a very large turnout of patrons as illustrious companies will be on hand to showcase their wares as they seek to leverage the market for increased support," said Mullings.

"A key feature of the Technology Business Expo is the fact that, each year, at least one charity will be identified for a special donation. This year, needy tertiary-level students who are enrolled at a recognised tertiary-level institution will benefit."

As is customary with most expositions, the Technology Business Expo 2015 will have an entertainment component, but it will not be of a secular nature.

"We will be having an integrated gospel concert which will be interspersed throughout the day's activities, primarily in the afternoon. Various gospel artistes will be on hand to showcase their talents and for the entertainment and spiritual upliftment of the patrons," said Mullings.

One exciting feature should be the Kiddies Village, which will feature attractions such as bounceabouts, water slides, a mechanical bull, mountain climbing, children's movies, clowns, face painting, cotton candy, popcorn and a variety of other activities to keep the children occupied.

The organisers have promised that children will be under constant supervision from a team of qualified and caring women to ensure their safety and enjoyment.
