Every year Tom Grech, President & CEO, Queens Chamber of Commerce hosts a business expo at Citi Field.

Guest
speakers: Thomas Donovan, Vice Chairman, Partner at B6 Real Estate Advisors; Elizabeth Lusskin, President at Long Island City Partnership; and Julie Samuels, Executive Director of Tech:NYC; speak about “Why Tech Needs Queens.” Also, you always get to rub elbows with a famous Mets player like Paul Lo Duca former catcher for the NY Mets.
