    Event Description:
    NO NEED TO REGISTER AS AN ATTENDEE FOR THIS EVENT! Come and enjoy the evening!

    Center Stage: The Business Expo 2018 vendor and sponsor booths are SOLD OUT! Be sure to register early next year!

    Highlight your business at Center Stage: The Business Expo! This unique expo will surely be different than other expos that you have participated in. The Center Stage Business Expo is a “Back to Business Open House and After Hours,” with business-to-business networking, music, appetizers and a cash bar. This event is open to the public!

    Notes from Pam McConeghy: "We launched this EXPO/After Hours last year, and were pleased by the response. Businesses of any size and type (large or small) may participate. For a small price, each vendor will receive an 8’ table (with tablecloth) to display your marketing materials to other businesses participating, or for the general public. All sponsors costs include the table and chairs. This is primarily a business to business EXPO, but we do also invite the public.

    We will have special lighting and music – provided by one of our very talented member’s, Ryan McFadden of R & R Sound and Lighting.  We will be serving appetizers and  will have a cash bar. This is a fabulous networking event. I would recommend having at least 2 people from your business present, so that you can mix, mingle and share information on your business with others in attendance.

    Bring plenty of business cards. You may also bring a give-away. Sponsors will be able to get on stage to share information on their business and present a gift to an attendee. Vendors who are not sponsors may give a give-away as well, and we will come to your table and announce your winners! We changed the concept slightly from last year, in that only sponsors will present from the stage. We simply ran out of time by having all vendors presenting.
     
    You can register right here online. Sign up today!!! We want YOU to be included!
     
    Our members always take “Center Stage” to us at the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce!!!!"
