Network at the Regional Business Expo
February 16, 2012 by James
The Regional Business Expo and Restaurant Showcase will take place at the Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows on March 21 from 4-7 pm. Admission is free with a business card.
Several area chambers of commerce, including the Wheeling/Prospect Heights Area Chamber of Commerce will be taking part in what is known as the ‘largest business networking event in the North/Northeast suburbs.’
There are several levels of exhibitors. $500 will get you a 10×10 area, an infomercial to be shown at the Expo, a list of attendees and a brochure to place on your table. Other levels cost $275 and $225. A restaurant exhibit table measuring 8×10 can be rented for $50, food tastings must be provided for 200 persons.
Taking part in an event such as this will get your business widely known in the region. Make sure to bring a product or two to display or graphic listing services that you provide. Also make sure to arrange for business card printing in advance so you will have enough to hand out to your fellow business leaders and to those who stop by your table. Wheeling printing companies can help design a professional-looking business card for a very reasonable price. Providing freebies for those who pass by your table is also a good way for them to remember you; having your logo imprinted on a pen or on a notepad (tools that all business persons use) will keep your company name fresh in their minds.
