Annual Chamber Business Expo, Mixer Wednesday

In conjunction with Tahoe Forest Hospital, the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce will hold their ninth annual Business Expo and Mixer on Wednesday, May 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the TFH professional building.

“(The Expo) is a great opportunity for Chamber members to showcase their businesses,” said Karin Pierce, visitor services and membership coordinator of the Chamber. “It’s a good social event as well … owners have the opportunity to check out the competition or form alliances with other businesses in town.”

The Expo will feature tables from 20 area businesses and Pierce projects having a large crowd.

“We had such demand for tables this year we sold out in less than a week and we even have a waiting list,” said Pierce.

Most of the business with tables are new to the Expo, although six have returned from previous years.

This will be Jeff Sparksworthy’s third year at the chamber event. As owner of the Sierra Tech Center, Sparksworthy thinks the Expo is a good way to network within the community.

“We like to keep our presence in the community … It’s also good to take advantage of the word of mouth advertising,” said Sparksworthy.

But the majority of the Expo’s participants are new.

Debbie Sajdak, marketing director for First American Title, says this is the company’s first year to be involved.

“We want to be able to reach out to the community and let them know we are here,” said Sajdak. “The Chamber offers so many neat things for businesses and we want to be a part of that.”

The mixer is open to the public. Food and beverages will be provided by the Tahoe Forest Hospital, and a drawing will be held to raffle off prizes donated by the various businesses with exhibits.
