Cleveland Chiropractic College-Kansas City (CCCKC) recently had the opportunity to promote the message of health and wellness as a primary sponsor for the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce Business to Business Expo. Held Oct. 27 at the Overland Park Convention Center, the event ran from 12:30-6:30 p.m. and featured more than 100 exhibitors from the Overland Park business community sharing information about their products and services.
Not only did the expo provide a great marketing opportunity for the College, it was a way to showcase student interns by exposing them to a non-clinical setting where they could interact with members of the public.
“Exhibiting at this year’s B2B Expo was a thoroughly positive experience for CCCKC and our student interns,” Dr. John Nab, vice president of institutional advancement said. “The expo was a wonderful opportunity for us to show our community support and allow our interns to interact with the business people in our community. We developed many valuable relationships, and we look forward to participating again next year.”
As one of the primary sponsors of the event, the College had a prominent exhibition space near in the center of the convention center. Throughout the afternoon, the CCCKC booth was populated with student interns who interacted with the expo attendees and demonstrated exercises that could be done in the office to increase core strength and flexibility.
Also present was Dr. Karen Doyle, director, master of science in health promotion. She was present to share information with those interested in pursuing the degree, and to answer questions about the degree. Coordinators for the event were Melissa Denton, director of admissions, and Linda Gerdes, community outreach representative. The hard work of all involved was rewarded as the College received “Best Booth” honors from the chamber.
