With restrictions still in place for large gatherings of people, the Tottenham & Beeton District Chamber of Commerce is making the best of the current situation by moving some of their events to a virtual format.
By going on-line, the TBDCC can still keep people connected while promoting the local business com-munity.
VIRTUAL HOME SHOW & ARTISAN MARKET
The TBDCC’s annual Spring Home Show which usually takes place in March, will be going on-line.
Since restrictions regarding gatherings will likely still be in place, it is not practical to plan an indoor show.
Instead, the Board of Directors decided to move to a virtual format this year.
Local businesses and vendors will still be able to showcase their prod-ucts and services, just in a different format.
The good side of this means more businesses will be able to participate and members of the public don’t have to commit to a specific day to attend the show.
Businesses and services will also be showcased for a longer period of time.
Launch date for the virtual Home Show and Artisan Market is April 17.Registration information will be available on the TBDSS website.
TBDCC ONLINE LEARNING SERIES
The TBDCC is presenting an op-portunity for local businesses to share their expertise and promote their products and services.
This gives members and non-mem-bers the opportunity to take part in workshops on a variety of different subjects.
The first workshop will take place on Friday, March 12, at 1:00 p.m. and will feature Devin Merkac, from 92.1 myFM radio.
He will discuss the benefits of radio advertising.
