Everyone is invited to check out the “Sea of Opportunities” Robin Jeffers J&R Gymnasticson display at the 30th Annual Business Trade Show that will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, September 11 and 12, 2018.  The New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center will be costumed and decorated to showcase the “Sea of Opportunities” available to local businesses and consumers. A very limited number of vendor booths are available. Contact the Chamber if you would like to network with other businesses in the area and get your business out in front of the more than 1,500 attendees who are looking for information on goods and services.

For those of us who like to maximize our time, the Business Trade Show is a great opportunity to meet a variety of product and service providers.  Whether you are an individual looking for yourself and your household, or you attend looking for business-to-business connections, the New Braunfels Business Trade Show has something for you. Most of the 100 businesses that purchase booth space decorate their booth and wear costumes to match the theme, which makes for a whole new shopping and networking experience.  The competition for the best decorated booth is fierce, and personally I am amazed at the creativity of the various businesses.  The range of unique ideas used to stand out is worth the price of admission.  

This celebration of local businesses kicks off with a Sneak Preview Night on Tuesday, September 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., which includes a silent auction, complimentary beer, wine, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, and great door prizes. Exhibitor booths will be judged for best decorated booth in the categories of large and small business, and the winners will be announced onsite that evening.

The Trade Show continues on Wednesday with the Day Show from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Day Show features a complimentary lunch, an exciting scavenger hunt and Happy Hour beginning at 5:00 with complimentary food and beer, entertainment, and another round of great door prizes. Don’t forget to purchase your tickets at www.TradeShowInNewBraunfels.com. I look forward to seeing you at the show!

Single booths are $525 for Chamber members and $775 for non-members. To book your space, contact Kelsey Reichert at kelsey@innewbraunfels.com or 830-625-2385.
