OCONTO AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUSINESS EXPO 2014
The Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring its 7th Annual Business Expo 2014 on Saturday, March 22nd from 11:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. This would be a great time to showcase your business and meet new clients. The event will again be held at the Bond Community Center with space available on the gym floor and the hallway only. The cost for Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce 2014 members is $25 for an approximate 10 by 10 booth. If you are a 2014 member of another Chamber in the area, the cost is $50. If you are not a current Chamber member, the cost is $100. There is an additional $10 fee for electricity. One table and skirting will be provided with the cost. This is an early bird special which will expire on March 8, 2014. After that the rates will increase by $25. No refunds after March 8, 2014. Lunch will be available at your cost at the various food vendor booths for both vendors and the public that attends. It would be an advantage for a business to join the Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce for 2014, because the dues are $100 for the average business. If you are not in business, you may still join the Chamber for $25 as an individual and receive full voting rights and enjoy many of the other benefits of the Chamber. The dues for a home-based business are $100. Non-profit groups may join the Chamber for $35. The Oconto Chamber currently has 130 businesses or organizations for its 2013 membership and we anticipate just as many for 2014. The admission for the general public to attend the Business Expo will be $1 each with the proceeds this year going to the Oconto Hospital Foundation.
There will be a networking hour for vendors from 10-11:00 A.M. before the general public arrives. This will be an opportunity to see what other fellow vendors have to offer. Call Ron or Kathy at 920-834-5606 for further details or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will also be chances on plastic ducks for door prizes at $1 each or 6 for $5. There will be a pool filled with water near the Chamber booth and attendees may choose a duck to see if it is a winner for a door prize.
In the past this has been a well-attended event for both vendors and attendees. Plan to sign up and attend for this event on March 22, 2014.
