3/13/2018 4:33:00 PM Jackson Chamber's Spring Business Showcase just around the corner, March 23-24
Spring is here, and the 22nd Annual Jackson County Business Spring Showcase is just a little over a week away!
The annual event will be held Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24 at the Jackson High School Field House.
The hours for the general public will be as follows: Friday from 5 to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with Grand Prize drawings at 4:45. Coupons worth $1 off admission price will be available at nearly all local grocery outlets in Jackson County starting this weekend, as well as at many vendors who have registered for the event.
"We have re-energized our event these past four years by moving to the Jackson High School Field House, especially with the inclusion of "A Taste of Jackson"--our Showcase food court," said Randy Heath, the executive director of the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce.
There is still time for businesses who wish to exhibit to sign up. They are urged to contact The Chamber via Facebook, or call the office at 1-740-286-2722.
"We have over 50 exhibit spaces reserved so far, including a wide variety of products and services which are all available here locally," noted Heath. "It is beneficial to large and small businesses alike, especially those who wish to gain a larger public exposure in a very short amount of time."
"There is plenty of parking for everyone, plenty of room within the field house and those who have participated in the Food Court have certainly added a wonderful touch," he commented, adding that each booth again will feature the black "pipe and drape" backdrop that has beautifully enhanced exhibits for the past few years.
Heath said he originated the idea for such an exhibition to allow businesses both large and small to promote their goods and services to a large number of people at one given time.
"I know, especially for our smaller businesses, that this has been a tremendous asset and all of our exhibitors certainly appreciate the patronage we have received from the public," he added. "The public support is what has made this a success, and we are truly appreciative to those who take time from their busy schedule to support our business community."
