---- — DANVERS — Hundreds of local business people were on hand last week for the annual North Shore Business Expo hosted by the North Shore Chamber of Commerce.
The daylong event began with a breakfast forum featuring four financial experts — Michael Tyler of Eastern Bank, Robert Gorman of TD Waterhouse, John Traynor of People’s United Bank and Rob Lutts of Cabot Wealth Management — who discussed the economic outlook. Lunch guests turned to the energy outlook, with a panel discussion by Marcy Reed of National Grid, Salem state Sen. John Keenan and attorney Bill Tinti. In between, visitors checked out booths set up by more than 100 exhibitors at DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Danvers.
