"Summer Bash" Business Expo
For 2020, “Summer Bash” has NEW Name, Date, & Venue –
Holiday Business Expo
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we need to reschedule our August 20th “Summer Bash” Business Expo. We are renaming our event to Holiday Business Expo. We are moving our expo to our chamber member hotel, the Courtyard by Marriot San Diego El Cajon in El Cajon. We are excited to add an “after party” that will be held in the courtyard between 8:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for further celebration. We will be using the 4,500 square-foot ballroom for our vendors and raffles, the foyer for our food vendors and the courtyard for our bar and “after party.”
7th Annual “Summer Bash” Business Expo 2020 The Chamber invites you to a fun-filled evening to meet local businesses and have the opportunity to win FREE door prizes. The evening will be filled with raffles, great samplings of delicious food from local restaurants and more!

You don’t have to be a sports fan to know that if you attended the August 15th “Summer Bash” Business Expo, that you were networking with the finest! We had NO ONE on the bench that evening! Everyone in the room was an MVP and “suited up” and ready to “play ball.” The noise level in the room was overwhelming. People were laughing and visiting the vendors and totally engaged! The fun began at 5:00 p.m. and 50 business vendors were ready and “warmed up” and waiting for the “first pitch” of the night. All our vendors, “suited up” with their best, as they decorated their tables, put their marketing information out and were ready for the “game” to begin at 5:00 p.m. As you entered the room, the chatter and laughter were an obvious factor as people observed the high energy in the room. A total of 48 free door prizes were given away that night. During that portion of the evening the microphone was ‘hot” as business leaders constantly gave away their door prizes.
