Riverhead Chamber of Commerce presents Dealmaker’s Tailgate Convention May 16, 2012

May 11, 2012 by  

The 2012 Dealmaker’s Tailgate Convention is scheduled for May 16th from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Hotel Indigo on Main Street in Riverhead.

This business-to-business event is designed to give companies an opportunity to network and make deals straight from the trunks of their own cars in the Hotel Indigo parking lot.

Participating business representatives will be assigned a spot in the parking lot to set up their bases of operation. A back-up plan is in place in the event of rain which would involve moving the tailgate displays into a designated meeting ballroom inside the Hotel Indigo. If it does happen to be raining, set-up will start at the earlier time of 2:00 pm.

The Riverhead Chamber of Commerce will award a prize for the best tailgate set-up, with members of the chamber including high profile local companies as well as small to mid-size businesses

Deal-making companies must bring at least 200 business cards or brochures as well as be prepared to come up with innovative and creative ideas to work with each other in this collaborative format. Print companies are therefore likely to be attending to offer various printing services such as business card printing along with brochure and flyer printing. Companies are also encouraged to bring samples or demos.

Fees to participate are $50 for chamber members and $100 for non-members. An online registration form with complete information is available on the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce website. Payment is also acceptable online to reserve space.
