Through both a morning and afternoon session, principals with Traditions met with various local companies to see how they might provide products or services to the proposed casino.
Owner Bill Walsh says he's interested in all sorts of business relationships, including food and beverage, linens, employment services and much more.
"From the start, we've said that this is all about the community. This is just another way that we're showing that we want to get the community involved. Not only supporting this project, but we're showing them that we're going to be able to support them as well going forward," said Walsh.
Walsh says being in the heart of the Triple Cities area, gives Traditions more opportunity to bolster surrounding businesses than its two competitors which would be located in remote rural areas.
Traditions also plans to hold a job fair for potential casino employees sometime next month.
