GLOVERSVILLE — The Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a 2017 Business Expo to help its members promote their businesses. The event will be held Thursday, April 6, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Johnstown Moose Club, 109 S. Comrie Ave. Booths are available to members of the Fulton Montgomery Chamber at which they can showcase their products or services to those in attendance. In addition, the event will incorporate a Business After Hours event, at which food and beverages will be served. There will be free admission to the event which is open to the public.
The Fulton Montgomery Chamber is offering this one-day exposition to give its members the opportunity for business-to-business marketing and face-to-face contact with chamber members, the public and other businesses. Chamber President/CEO Mark Kilmer said, “The Business Expo is a great way for our members to boost sales and reach potential customers, enhance their business image, or showcase their newest offerings.”
Only 60 booth spaces will be available at this event for vendors, and they are already being reserved. The cost is $125 per booth prior to March 15, and $150 per booth after March 15. There are special rates for restaurants/caterers who are interested in having tastings at their booths. Booth spaces will include an eight inch table, two chairs and tablecloth. Special features for participants will be promotion in the chamber printed and email newsletters and on the chamber’s social media outlets, the opportunity to provide special prizes and giveaways throughout the show and to sell products or services during the show. “The investment of time and money for participating vendors is small, but, the payoff can be huge as you promote your business to scores of possible customers in one afternoon,” said Kilmer. “If you are a restaurant or caterer, graphic designer, contractor, Adirondack furniture maker or dog groomer, all are welcome to take advantage of this great opportunity.”
An extra incentive for any business that joins the chamber between now and the week of the Expo will be given $25 off their booth space; additionally, new members that join between now and March 15, will be entered to win a free booth space.
