History: Back in the early 90’s, the RORO Expo began under a different name. In its origin, it was not called RORO. This name “RORO” did not evolve until 1996 after about 4 years of existence. The name was actually a spinoff of BOCO, which stands for Boone County Expo. The original idea for RORO was to have an opportunity once a year for local businesses that didn’t have storefronts to showcase themselves to the public. The main founders of the event were American Family Insurance, Beloit Daily News, The Rockton Herald along with numerous realtors, local banks and small businesses. The first expo was held in the main gymnasium of Hononegah High School. Approximately 45 booths displayed their business while the metal gym was used for non-profit organizations and food vendors. In 1996, the RORO Expo was adopted by the Roscoe Area and Rockton Chambers of Commerce with a new look and feel. These two Chamber neighbors worked together for one purpose, to showcase our community. In 2002, the RORO Expo was able to enlarge to over 150 vendors under one roof. This enlarged event was due to the newly constructed Hononegah Athletic Dome. It was at this time that all food vendors, area businesses and non-profit organizations could combine in one location along with entertainment, demonstrations and the new KidZone. The basic idea of RORO still exists today with the main focus to showcase everyone big and small, coming together for our communities.

The 2020 Expo is going to be AMAZING!!! What are we excited about? Let's break it down:

1) We are moving back to HONONEGAH in the gorgeous fieldhouse. The space is amazing 💜. It's the perfect layout for our expo, and - no more temperature control or layout issues. Everyone will share the same foot traffic, warmth, and perfect visitor flow.

2) We have a new name, which we've been thinking about for a LONG TIME. Fact is, we have always been a regional business expo🗺 . We are fond of our previous name (RORO Expo), but it was time we left the perception of being only Rockton and Roscoe behind. We welcome vendors and visitors from all around, and the new name better reflects our Expo as we continue to showcase businesses from all around the area.

3) With the new larger space, ALL booths are expanded in size while keeping the prices the same. This gives our vendors the ability to expand their displays without spending any more 💲.

4) All your favorite parts of the Expo remain - the Kids entertainment area ✔ - Mark's Pizza Eating Contest ✔ - Pancake Breakfast ✔. Mascot Meet n Greet ✔ - Live Entertainment ✔

5) We remain a FREE Expo for our visitors 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦. It's important that everyone in our community know what awesome products & services are available to them WITHOUT having to fork over money.

We are really excited to be moving back into Hononegah for the 2020 expo. With the new location comes a new name for the Expo. RORO is now the Stateline Business Expo. With businesses from all over the Stateline area represented each year and our continued focus on regional growth and community partnerships, we feel this new name is a perfect reflection of the spirit of this community event.

Vendors can expect increased booth sizes without any increase in cost. Visitors will enjoy a space that is large enough to feature better entertainment space, easier traffic flow, and even more vendors than ever before. Plus, it remains a FREE event for all visitors!

Returning vendors should be on the lookout for info on how to reserve your preferred space. After that we will open registration to Chamber Members (of all local chambers), followed by public availability.

There is still space for your business. Chamber members receive $100 off their booth, and non-profits receive $50 off. These discounts are stackable, so that means a member non-profit can get a booth for as little as $200.
