• Business After Hours

  • The primary purpose of a Business After Hours event is to promote the host business’s product and/or services. The Chamber encourages any, and all, promotional materials to be displayed at a Business After Hours event. The agenda of a Business After Hours varies, based on the expectations of the host business. Some have an open house atmosphere, while others prefer a more structured agenda including time to present information to the guests and guided tours.
