The Business Showcase is a quarterly event sponsored by the Chicago Marriott Naperville and held by the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce, which allows businesses to connect in a new way while greeting members of the public and fellow business owners. The first of this year’s Business Showcases is taking place on Feb. 19, and businesses may choose to participate exclusively in this event or take advantage of a special rate for tables in the next four showcases. Here is a look at what you might gain by taking part in this expo, which is free to attend for all members of the community.

Create new exposure

A table at the showcase will provide you with a space to market your business as you mingle with established business owners of the Naperville community after regular business hours. The relaxed atmosphere of this event is the perfect place to finish your business day while continuing to contribute to the day’s success.

Meet fellow business owners

You can not only renew existing business contacts, but you might make new contacts to build long-lasting business relationships. As you grow your professional network, you may even generate some new leads that will help you get 2014 off to a successful start. Because the Business Showcase takes place four times each year, it is the perfect meeting place for business owners looking to expand their relationships.
