Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Marnie Uhl said attendance of some 750 people was about average for the annual Business and Health Expo Saturday.
Nearly 100 exhibitors participated in the 13th annual showcase at Tim's Toyota Center.
"It was well-attended for a beautiful summer Saturday," Uhl said.
She said the area's only major conflicting event was professional bull riding.
The success of the event is because of the variety of exhibitors Uhl called "incredible" - from health care and education to private business and public utilities to professional sports clubs and law enforcement.
Uhl said exhibitors' positive comments indicated they were pleased with the event, its location, the wide-open booth spaces and shortening the hours to end at 3 p.m. At least one chamber staff member patrolled the floor at all times to keep things running smoothly.
Paul McCully, with United Blood Services, said they collected from 16 people.
"It was definitely a success. We had a good amount of people show up, as it was more of a 'walk-up' blood drive, but for some reason a greater than average number were deferred," McCully said. Examples of causes for deferment were the potential donors' heart rates were too high, or their combination of medications prevented them from donating.
Because of Thursday night's Kenny G benefit concert, the chamber couldn't put up banners at the center before Friday morning.
"We had good media coverage by the newspapers and radio, but next year, we need to put up some signage around town," Uhl said.
She said if there was a downside for exhibitors, the only thing they mentioned was Tim's Toyota Center's written policy of not allowing food or drinks to be brought in.
Exhibitors were aware of the policy in advance, but felt it was too restrictive to purchase all the day's beverages and food from a limited offering.
