The Conway Chamber of Commerce said it is planning a job fair for workers affected by layoffs at Hewlett-Packard Co.'s services center.

The job fair is scheduled for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. July 19 at the University of Central Arkansas Student Ballroom.

TJ Johnston, executive vice president of the Conway Chamber of Commerce, said 18 companies are registered to attend the event so far.

HP, of Palo Alto, Calif., announced Monday that it is laying off 500 people in Conway, about a third of its work force there. The computer and information technology services company, which has struggled as PC sales have declined, said the move is part of a companywide restructuring plan it announced last year.
