Business to Botana Expo
Showcase your products and services in the Fall of 2014 during this event, which attracts more than 100 booth vendors and 1,000 attendees.
Public Affairs Luncheons
Organized two to three times a year, these events are designed to address issues of concern for the business community. Attendance ranges from 75-200 participants depending on the topic.
Speed Networking Events
A fun, fast way to build your business contacts! You will be seated at a table with up to six other business people. Going around the table, each participant presents a “60-second commercial” on his or her business and passes out their business cards. After everyone has had a turn, you have two minutes for networking while you advance to the next table and begin again. You will meet 49 new business contacts in one hour.

Hosted by a Chamber member, Business After Hours events occur quarterly from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on a Thursday. Typical attendance ranges from 150 to 300 people.
