business showcase 2012250It is time again for the Annual Business Showcase hosted by the Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce. For 17 years, the Brownwood Chamber has provided a venue for local businesses to network with over 1,000 potential clients/customers in one location and ultimately grow their business and the local economy. This year will not be any different; the 18th Annual Business Showcase will feature over 60 local businesses in various lines of trade from banking, insurance and energy to home health services and personal well being.

The show will open at 10:00 AM on Thursday, September 6th at the Brownwood Coliseum and will feature well known, established businesses as well as some of the newest in the Brownwood area. Admission is only $2 and complimentary passes are available for a limited time at the Brownwood Chamber of Commerce office. The first 500 visitors will receive a tote bag to hold all of the valuable information you will likely gather throughout your visit!

All visitors to the show will have the opportunity to win booth prizes from each of the exhibitors. Those who participate in the “Bingo” game may enter to win one of the Grand Door Prizes – A Brinkman Grill or patio set!

For the 6th year, the “Taste of Brownwood” – Presented by Sodexo returns to offer the community an opportunity to sample favorite recipes from local restaurants, caterers and bakeries. From 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, showcase visitors can visit restaurant row and sample tasty treats from local restaurants. Taste of Brownwood sample tickets are $2 for your first 4 tickets and $1 each for additional tickets after that. Taste of Brownwood is not included with complementary passes.

Make plans to attend, visit with people you have known for years and get to know the new faces in town. Take time to learn about the products and services offered by each one of these local business owners.

The Brownwood Chamber encourages local residents to “shop local” to support local businesses and our local economy. Every dollar that you spend in Brownwood generates the funds used to better the community that we all call home.
