Chamber of Commerce Trade Show set for early May

Rowan County Chamber of Commerce

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce Trade Show will be held May 7 from  2 to 7 p.m. at the F&M Trolley Barn at 125 E. Liberty Street. Title sponsors are F&M Bank, Salisbury Post and Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.

Martha Bostian, Trade Show committee chair, said, “This year’s trade show is going to be bigger and better than ever with the popular Business After Hours mixer being held in conjunction with the event. Over 70 booths will feature Chamber member businesses displaying the latest products and services our region has to offer.”

Business seminars will also be offered prior to the opening of the show. Seminars will focus on best business practices and marketing ideas. A procurement panel of major employers will explain how to do business with them. Several employers have special certificates or procedures to “get in the door” and those will be explained to attendees.

The Trade Show is the Chamber’s largest networking event. It is a business-to-business expo with valuable business connections made every year. Several of the booths will offer valuable door prizes in addition to the grand prize of an iPad drawing at the end of the evening. Food and refreshments will be available.

Trade show booths are available at the “Early Bird” rate of $275 by April 10. The show is free to attend; however, seminars require reservations. For more information, please contact the Chamber at 704-633-4221 or info@rowanchamber.com.
