You don’t have to be a sports fan to know that if you attended the August 17th “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 all the business vendors were ready and “warmed up” and waiting for the “first pitch” of the night. 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. Our food vendors were lacing up their “cleats” and setting up to serve samples of delicious menu items. As you entered the room, the energy and laughter of the crowd was overwhelming and continued throughout the night. The microphone was “hot” as business leaders constantly gave away over 32 free door prizes. A LOUD round of applause to the following businesses who joined us and took a display table and shared in our evening:
