BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Dozens of local businesses set up shop at the Larkin Center.
The Seneca Gaming Corporation hosted a vendor trade show to screen businesses as they search for future work bids at the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino. Vendors turned out from various industries including food, lighting, landscaping and cleaning. Organizers say Thursday's trade show was about keeping ties to the community strong.
Seneca Gaming CEO Cathy Walker said, "Our philosophy for the Buffalo Creek is to be a positive part of the community. So this is another method of outreach for us. So that we can make sure that those who are local can know about us; we can know about them and possibly partner with them for business in the future."
This is the second vendor trade show event hosted by the Senecas this year.
