The sixties were about diversity, hope, change and making your voice heard. With this in mind, your Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association decided to bring this decade’s excitement to the biggest business networking event of 2012 – the MBACC/MBAHA 2012 Member-to-Member Business Expo, Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012 , from 4-7 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
Investing in a booth at the MBACC/MBAHA Member-to-Member Business Expo provides your business with the opportunity to make new connections and reach new markets! Reserve your booth by Dec. 15 and keep $26 in your pocket – Booth Fee for MBACC Members: $125. The Member-to-Member Business Expo is presented by Frontier and sponsored by Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, Myrtle Beach Mobile, T-Mobile and Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel. Food provided by Cravinley’s Buffet in a Box, Planet Hollywood and The Melting Pot.
Celebrate the holiday spirit at the 2011 Christmas Towne, sponsored by Wendy’s and Smoke Free Horry.
Brought to you by Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, Christmas Towne will be held Sunday, Dec. 11, from 2-6:30 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Festivities will take place inside Exhibit Hall A and the outdoor Events Plaza. As always, the event is free and open to the public.
The event includes photos with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, official tree lighting ceremony for the City of Myrtle Beach, train rides, Taxi Jet children’s ride, letters to Santa, pony rides, hayrides, exhibitor giveaways and much more.
First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. Now, Small Business Saturday can drive shoppers to small businesses across the country as we enter the holiday season.
Small Business Saturday was created by American Express in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: creating more demand for their products and services. This year, Small Business Saturday falls on Nov. 26. Small business owners can download online promotional materials that will help them drive sales to their business on Small Business Saturday. American Express is also giving $100 of free Facebook advertising to 10,000 business owners who sign up to help build online buzz and drive customers to their stores on Small Business Saturday. By simply entering a few pieces of information and clicking a button, these business owners can create a personalized, geo-targeted ad that will run on Facebook leading up to Nov. 26.
When we all shop small, it will be huge.
