The Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 2017 Gain Momentum Business Expo—Taste of the Chamber from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Anderson Civic Center at 3027 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Monica Elmer, events and special projects coordinator for the Anderson Chamber, said this year’s installment of the annual event has been geared to showcase local businesses and entrepreneurs.
Participants will have the opportunity to sample a variety of foods from Anderson County restaurants, and get to know a little bit more about area businesses.
The Anderson Chamber will also bring back the Art Slam Live, a live art competition featuring visual art and live music.
The competition, introduced in 2016, has an impromptu format that gives artists a surprise theme or subject matter and then they have to perform in front of a live audience. The viewers choose the winner.
Participating businesses can showcase their products, services, and people during the expo portion of the event.
The Anderson Chamber said exhibition space is still available, but the deadline is Friday, Sept. 15.
Booths are $300 for 100 square feet, $425 for 200 square feet, and $600 for 400 square feet. A $40 fee for electricity use may be charged.
Businesses or organizations interested in space can register online, or download a registration form and send it to the chamber by fax at 864-226-3300, or mail it to 907 North Main St., Suite 200, Anderson S.C. 29621.
Tickets purchased before Friday, Oct. 6, are $5 per ticket, or $20 for five tickets.
Tickets purchased after Tuesday, Oct. 10 will be $10 per ticket, or $40 per five tickets. The same prices apply to tickets purchased at the door on the day of the event. But payments of cash will only be accepted at the door.
