The 4th annual Blues by the Bay gala networking event will take place next month, presented by the Manatee and Sarasota Chambers of Commerce.
This annual networking extravaganza is an opportunity for chamber members from all over the region to meet their business peers and to grow their referral networks. Business leaders from all over including Bradenton will be on hand to discuss their companies and to exchange cards, so no doubt most of those planning to attend will be bringing along their premium business cards to exchange with their peers.
Guests will enjoy food provided by Chamber member restaurants and a cash bar. Musical entertainment will be provided by Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones.
In addition to being a networking opportunity, this event also gives local restaurants a chance to showcase their food and attract more companies to hold business meetings on their premises.
Sponsorships are available for $1,000 each. All sponsors will be recognized on all print advertising and at the event itself.
Blues by the Bay will be held at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota on April 12 from 5:00 to 7:30 PM.
