Business Showcase Highlights Local Businesses

Looking to promote your business? Meet hundreds of potential customers at the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce "Business Showcase" --- the premier event for bringing consumers and businesses together under one roof. This annual event promotes area businesses and brings valuable exposure. Whether you're in retail, food service, sell products online or provide professional services --- this event will connect exhibitors with the public and other business professionals.

Booth space is available now but is filling up quickly. Businesses are encouraged to register early for optimum booth location. Taking place at the Bonner County Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 31, the Showcase will run from 11am to 3pm. There are sponsor levels for everyone’s budget, ranging from $250-$1000. For those interested in participating, you can sign up for a booth at $80 for Chamber Members and $100 for Non-Chamber Members.

"How many people visit your business in a day? Here's an opportunity for hundreds to learn about your products and services and make connections that you may reap the benefits from for years to come," said Barbara Schriber, Chair of the Business Development Committee. She added, "part business fair, part market place, part networking event, the Business Showcase is a great marketing opportunity for area businesses."

The Chamber listened to last year’s suggestions and has stepped up their game! DJ and Master of Ceremonies KT from the radio station will be on hand to talk up the exhibitors that provide a raffle prize for the event. They are going to include a larger amount of food and drink vendors. To top it all off, the Grand Prize Raffle item is going to be a Kindle Fire.

Exhibitors can take advantage of the free WiFi on site to demonstrate their products and services, sell products or take orders, distribute samples, network with business peers and build customer relationships. KPND 95.3 will be broadcasting live from the event with updates and interviews with vendors.

Join the action at this year's Business Showcase and kick off spring by highlighting your business and developing customer relationships. For more information, visit: http://members.sandpointchamber.org/Events/details/business-showcase
