By WKTV News

(WKTV) - The Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce announced Wednesday an all-new 2014 Chamber Community Business Expo.

The newly revamped event returns to its roots at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Events will include speed networking, a culinary court and farmers' market. Nd it will make an effort to include a certain segment of the local population that hasn't really been targeted before.

"We're trying to have an outreach to our ethnic and international population for the future businesses of our area," said Pamela Matt of the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce. "I want them to be very comfortable in this space, so we are doing an outreach, going door-to-door to these types of organizations and telling them this is the place where they want to be."

The Chamber Community Business Expo is set for Sept. 17 at the Aud.
