The Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce will hold its 18th Annual Business Expo andamp; Chamber Mixer Thursday, April 29, 5:30-8:00 p.m. at The Resort at Squaw Creek. The Business Expo, designed to be part Expo and part business social event, will showcase more than 80 different businesses, demonstrating the strength and variety of the local economy and fostering a positive business environment.Tradeshows are a proven way to reach customers. Sales are frequently developed through the relationships we have created with other people. The Expo combines the benefits of a tradeshow and a Chamber mixer to create the ultimate networking experience. The Truckee Donner Chamber mixers are some of the best networking events in the Truckee-Tahoe region.The Expo provides exhibitors an opportunity to promote their business on a personal level at an affordable cost; introduce and raise awareness of new or existing products and services; meet new people who could become permanent customers/clients; educate people about their business; and network.Attendance is free and considered by many a must-attend event for anyone doing business in the Truckee-Tahoe area. There will be an abundance of door prizes and giveaways at the exhibitor booths. Contests and games for prizes provide a lively, festive environment. KTKE 101.5 FM will be broadcasting live from the venue, including on-air interviews with exhibitors and attendees. The crew from Tahoe TV will be filming the event and will produce a special video segment that will air online and on their TV network around the region.Truckee Chamber members can exhibit for as little as $185, and exhibitors who reserve and confirm space by April 9 will be featured in a special section to appear in the April 28 issue of the Sierra Sun.
