The Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce’s annual business expo is getting a new name and a new location. This year, the annual event is rechristened Facebooth Fox Cities and will be held at the Players’ Choice on Highway JJ in Appleton on Tuesday, Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The new name recognizes the way social media is changing business, but also draws attention to the simple fact that most business still gets done during face-to-face conversations.
