BOONE, NC – The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce announces its continued partnership with Boone Mall to serve as host of the 30th-annual Elevate Boone! Business Expo. The event is set for Thursday, May 4th, and is open to the public from 10am-5pm.
Elevate Boone! provides a new brand surrounding one of the area’s top business showcases. The annual expo averages over 75 unique local vendors who use the event for public awareness and business-to-business marketing.
“The additions we’ve made to this year’s expo are designed to expand the impact of the event for customers and businesses alike,” said Boone Area Chamber of Commerce President/CEO David Jackson. “In addition to providing a snapshot of the High Country business scene under one roof, we’ve scheduled programming around the expo that will inform patrons and vendors about relevant business topics that impact our economy. We are thankful for our partnership with Boone Mall and their ability to provide us such versatile space to help elevate the impact and exposure for our local businesses.”
Throughout the day patrons and vendors are encouraged to attend a series of short seminars that will be offered in a special venue at center court. Programs are free of charge to attendees and vendors and will last 25-30-minutes each. The seminars cover a variety of topics that relate to business development, employee retention, insurance, marketing strategies, and other subjects that can be applied to local business ventures of all sizes.
“Businesses of all shapes and sizes benefit from hearing new ideas,” Jackson said. “We felt the addition of the seminars will provide the latest information from chamber members that are experts on these topics. Many times businesses want to invest in continuing education but struggle to find the time. Hopefully these programs can offer the opportunity for attendees to multitask and pick-up some useful information while they interact with local businesses featured at the expo.”
