Teams are gathering and preparing to "knock business networking out of the park" at the first-ever Prime Time Business EXPO hosted by the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
“Swing for the Fences” is an extra-inning effort prompted by the October “Batting a 1,000” membership effort. It will take place Thursday, at Omega Center International, 410 Urbane Road, from 5-7 p.m.
“Batting a 1,000” was recruitment-focused with more than 300 volunteers inviting 555 new member businesses to join the Chamber in just three days.
“During the event, all volunteers and new members were invited to participate in Prime Time as an additional membership benefit,” Aaron Weatherford, membership director, said. “But we have also invited existing members to take part in the Prime Time Business EXPO.”
The EXPO will offer new and existing Chamber members opportunities to network and to spotlight their respective businesses in an environment where others who would like to know more about them can do so easily.
“This is a great time for our MVPs in the business community to talk about their products and services with other businesses,” Mr. Weatherford said. “It’s the best game in town featuring our new team members, as well as the veterans who have been Chamber members for many years.”
WCLE/MyMix 104.1 will broadcast live from the Omega Center during the festive baseball-themed Business EXPO.
“We encourage representatives from all businesses to stop by,” Bernadette Douglas, Chamber executive vice president, said. “We think Chamber membership is the best game in town, and we want to present our members to the business community at large.”
