    Charlotte Sun Column – February 6, 2018

    February 6, 2018

         Thursday is the Expo!  Please join 107 Chamber members and their staff from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Event Center in Punta Gorda.  On this one day, in one place you can meet hundreds of potential customers and/or referral sources and build new business relationships.  Exhibitors, don’t sit in your booth all day.  We have volunteers who can give you a break as you mix and mingle with other exhibitors and tell them about your products/services.  Attendees, bring your “honey do” list and talk with Chamber members who can do the work for you.  This is a great opportunity to Shop Charlotte all in one day!  There will be two “speed networking” sessions (10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.) where you will meet more than 20 business people in less than an hour.  The crew from the 2018 Dancing With the Charlotte Stars will perform at noon, and that’s always a fun show to see.  Order a box lunch in the Chamber store or head downtown and visit one of the many chamber member restaurants.  The Leadership Charlotte class of 2018 will be there selling raffle ticket for their adult beverage box.  And, there will be live music by Tiki Tom, give-a-ways, door prizes and more.  There is something for everyone at the Hottest Business Day in Paradise Business Expo.  Be there. 

         Networking at Noon is Feb. 14 at LaFiorentina,10361 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda.  Please make a reservation and select your meal in the Chamber store.

         We’re having a joint Chamber Coffee with the Tampa Bay Rays at Charlotte Sports Park on Feb. 21, starting at 8 a.m. with members of the Charlotte, Englewood, North Port and Punta Gorda chambers.   Speakers from the Rays and Stone Crabs will be there to talk about the upcoming season.  Stay after the event and watch the players and catchers first work out of the season.  There’s no charge to attend this fun networking event which is another opportunity to meet lots of business people from the community.  Please call our office at 627-2222 and let us know if you’ll be there so we have enough coffee and breakfast munchies for everyone.

         Just Counters & other stuff (1489 Market Circle, PC) is hosting a joint Business Card Exchange to celebrate15 years of doing business.  Join us, the Charlotte De-Soto Building Industry Association, and the Englewood, North Port and Punta Gorda chambers from 5 to 7 p.m. for a fun party on Feb. 22.

         See you Thursday!
