The Martensville Business Expo is Back!

by Shanine Sealey
The Martensville Business Expo is back once again and will be taking place at the Martensville Athletic Pavilion on March 24th and 25th, hosted in partnership between the City of Martensville and the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce. This event is jam-packed with something for everyone to enjoy. 

“We are quite excited and feel that this Expo is going to be quite exceptional. It is going to once again meet all of the usual enjoyments that the community gets from the event with a nice diverse group of vendors, lots of entertainment, a Taste of Martensville and so much more, but we also have an added feature this year, which I think will be a great interest to our vendors and those attending, and that is a Job Fair,” Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Debbie Brown, said. 

According to Brown, one of the most common comments from local businesses is the need for skilled labour to work for them. “I’m not sure if Martensville and Warman have had the opportunity for a job fair in the past, so we thought we could give it a go and introduce young people, and those looking for jobs to some of the opportunities right here in our area,” Brown added. 

The Job Fair and Career Sessions will take place on Friday, March 24th from 4pm-8pm, with an opportunity to learn more about resume writing and interview tips in the afternoon. There will be guest speakers from Great Plains College, Martensville Youth Connection, Cones Ice Cream, Direct Fencing Supply, Element Yard Care, Martensville Community Recreation Project and the Prairie Spirit Schools Foundation as well. 

There will be over 50 vendors attending the expo, a Saturday morning pancake breakfast from 8am-10am, a wide variety of entertainment throughout the event and Taste of Martensville will be taking place on Saturday from 11am-3pm, with food provided by Bumble Bee Coffee, Sports Page, Nourish and Par-a-dice Grill. 

“Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors and to the folks on the committee that have put in so much work to make this event happen. I really encourage people to come out and meet the local businesses and bring your family for a day to enjoy your community,” Brown stated. 

Friday, March 24th Schedule – 1pm-5pm Resume and Interview Tips with Martensville Youth Connection; 4pm-8pm Job Fair and Career Sessions to talk to local business owners; 4pm-8pm Guest Speakers to learn more about secondary education options, entrepreneurship, business programs, home-grown business, volunteerism and more.
