Business ShowCase Fall Fest

  • Dear Chamber friend:

    It’s that time again! The 2016 East Haven Fall Festival is right around the corner and the Chamber is planning its 2016 Business Showcase. The date this year is Saturday, September 10, 2016, from 10 AM until 3:00 PM, under the big tent on the East Haven Green.
    The Chamber is proud to support the businesses that take time each year to participate and it considers the event a “showcase” of the area’s top businesspeople. Again this year, the Chamber is taking great efforts to make sure that the businesses that participate in the Showcase get the most exposure possible.
    First, the Chamber will help participants draw people to the showcase tent by listing the participating businesses on ETV, East Haven Chamber Website, East Haven Fall Festival Website, and Facebook. Also, participants that sign up on or before August 1, 2016 will be guaranteed placement in the East Haven Courier’s Festival Brochure.
    Second, the Chamber is excited to announce that Showcase participants will be given two complimentary tickets to the Corporate Tent for both Friday and Saturday nights so that they can network with other business sponsors. The Corporate Tent features a prime location near the gazebo and free hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. On Friday night, the Chamber will also be decorating each table in the Corporate Tent with promotional place cards indicating which businesses will be in the Showcase the following day.
    To increase traffic on the day of the Showcase, the Chamber will be raffling off a 7 inchAndroid Tablet for adults and a children’s tablet. Entries for the raffles will have to be marked by EACH business showcase table before they will be entered in the drawing. To further increase exposure, Showcase participants will get a chance to address the Festival crowd on Saturday from the stage at 12:30pm. We are also asking ETV to stop by each business that participates for a brief interview for those watching festival coverage at home.
    This year, the Chamber is offering the benefit of being in the Showcase for $200.00 if payment is received by August 31, 2016. However, if participants sign up on or before August 1, 2016, they will receive 10% off and be able to sign up for $180.00!
    The Business Showcase provides a unique opportunity for local businesses to reach hundreds of people in an afternoon. This year, the Chamber will be doing everything it can to make the experience beneficial for each participant. We hope we can count on your business to be a participant this year.

    Very Truly Yours,

    East Haven Chamber Board of Directors,
    Business Showcase/Festival Planning Committee
