Chamber’s annual Business Showcase offers something for everyone

The Chamber's fourth annual Business Showcase is at Crown Isle Resort in Courtenay.

It has only been a few days since the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce staged its annual Community Awards Gala, and the staff are already planning another great community event.

Members of the public and business community are encouraged to ‘Save the Date’ for the Chamber’s fourth annual Business Showcase to be held at Crown Isle Resort from 1—6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28.

The Chamber has opened the online booking for table rentals and encourages Chamber members and interested local business owners to act fast if they want to participate. Booth space at the event is always a sellout.

The event is not restricted to Chamber members; however, members do receive a 50 per cent discount off exhibition space.

Last year, in addition to exhibitors, hundreds of people took advantage of the free admission to check out what local business had to offer. There are always plenty of door prizes, exhibitor draws, food and product samples, and more.

“This annual event provides Chamber members and other businesses in the community with an opportunity to showcase their products and services in a professional setting at a beautiful venue,” says Chamber president/CEO Dianne Hawkins. “We encourage local residents to come to the Showcase to visit more than 35 exhibitor booths, to learn what’s new at the businesses they know and love, and to discover exciting products and services from others that are new to the community.”

Businesses may enter to win a Business Services Prize Package valued at more than $4,000. Donations are still coming in for this prize pack but those confirmed to date include a Chamber membership, as well as various products and services.
