         As you’ve read, our 7th Annual Hottest Business Day in Paradise Business Expo is Feb. 8.  We’re having a workshop and a pre-party for exhibitors on Jan. 11 at 5:15 p.m. at Kingsway Country Club.  So, if you’re “on the fence” about participating in the Expo, it’s time to hop off and sign-up so that you can take advantage of the pre-party festivities and start networking with your fellow exhibitors.  Please call 627-2222 for more information about the Expo that had a walk-in attendance of more than 1,200 people last year.  Yes, you can reach that many prospective new clients or customers on one day, in one place.

         Just a heads up on other January events.  Networking at Noon is Jan. 10 at JDs Bistro, the Third Wednesday Coffee is Jan. 17 and will feature City Manager Howard Kunik as the speaker and Charlotte Memorial Funeral Home, Cemetery and Crematory and the Jan. 25 Business Card Exchange will be at BankUnited.
