EXCLUSIVITY:  Business After Hours sponsors are the only businesses spotlighted during this time.  You may virtually do anything you wish with your Business After Hours including, but not limited to giving away door prizes, demonstrations, contests, etc.

TIMING:  Business After Hours are scheduled carefully so as not in conflict with one another or other major Chamber events.

LOCATION:  Business After Hours may be held anywhere you wish. Creativity is a factor.  We recommend that you consider highlighting your place of business, and if that is not possible, think about other Chamber members’ locations for your Business After Hours.

INFORMATIVE:  Be sure that your displays, hand out materials, and other point of purchase materials include your name, company, address, phone number, hours of operation, and any special information about your business.  We can’t utilize your services if we don’t know where or when to find you!

FUN:  Business After Hours should be fun.  Remember, businessmen and women are interested in a relaxed atmosphere in which to mingle, visit and learn.
