Show your wares at the Brandon Business Expo
May 6, 2012 by Mark
The 24th annual Brandon Business Expo and Taste of Brandon will take place at the Florida State Fairground on May 17th from 3:30 to 8:00 pm. The event is open to the general public; ticket prices will be around $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
The expo is a presentation of the Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce. There are expected to be over 200 exhibitors selling all sorts of products and services. There will also be food sampling from various local restaurants and catering companies. Last year’s event featured raffles and giveaways and a taste-off competition between food vendors; more than likely this year’s event will feature the same activities.
Business owners can rent space at the expo for $275 for Chamber members and $375 for non-members. This will be the perfect opportunity for Brandon businesses to introduce their newest products and services to the public. Exhibitors will most likely be working with local printing companies to provide them with brochures, business cards, banner printing services and signs to draw attention to their booths and to spread the word about their businesses throughout the community.
The Business Expo will also be a good networking opportunity for the companies who choose to exhibit, they can visit each other’s booths and discover business opportunities that they would not have known about otherwise. Many networking events are only for chamber members but events such as this which are open to the entire business community will help a referral network to grow much quicker.
