Delaware County and Greater Philadelphia business men and women gathered together recently to network, attend seminars, and exhibit their products at the 24th Annual Hermes Expo at the Concordville Inn. Targeting the restaurant, hospitality and health care industries, the annual trade show, which was open with no admission to the public, featured dozens of vendors, a venue for networking, keynote speakers at lunch and dinner and an awards ceremony.
