Reconnect at Business Showcase

Back To Our Blog

The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce celebrates a special anniversary this month — 30 years of showcasing member products and services at our annual Business Showcase. We’re proud to reach this milestone and of the friendly, local atmosphere that this event is appreciated for.

All are invited to our 30th Annual Business Showcase on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 3-5 p.m. The event will double as the Chamber’s popular Business DURING Hours April online networking event. Presented by Merrimack County Savings Bank and Unitil, the event features the products and services of Greater Concord Chamber members in an environment that makes making connections easy. Enjoy networking with fellow members, young professionals and the general business public while getting to know the Capital area’s diverse business, education and nonprofit community.

Some may be surprised to learn that an event of this magnitude can and will be hosted online. One thing that COVID-19 has taught us, is that the challenge of doing things in new ways is well worth the reward. Following the Chamber’s 2020 Virtual Business Showcase—NH’s first—an online exhibitor enthusiastically shared, “Thank you for an effective, positive event. It was very well done and I truly made some excellent connections, including two very strong prospective clients who want to talk.” Virtual events work and welcome those who are unable to attend in-person events. For 2021, the Chamber is taking Virtual Business Showcase to a whole new level through Remo.

After a year of limited face-to-face trade show and in-person business development opportunities, Remo’s novel approach to virtual networking drew rave reviews from attendees at recent Chamber events. It’s free to use and facilitates a real networking feel through self-directed video chat. Attendees will enter Showcase through a virtual floor map that displays trade show booths and fellow attendees at booths or tables. Each individual can independently join or initiate a video chat with an exhibitor, chat with a group at a table, or start a conversation with another attendee with the click of a mouse. Attendees and exhibitors can add a photo, website URL and social media links to their Remo profile ahead of the event for streamlined introductions and contact exchanges. Unlike other online events, where attendees sit and listen to a presenter, the Chamber’s 30th Annual Business Showcase will be far more interactive. Attendees can come and go to booths at their own pace through Remo, so exhibitors can tailor conversations and presentations to the individual, instead of relying on a PowerPoint or video presentation. Exhibitors will also enjoy admission to an exclusive virtual Exhibitor B2B Networking Party on Thursday, April 8 from 4:30-5 p.m.

Business Showcase offers safe networking opportunities and a trade show experience at a time when many are eager to resume day-today business pursuits. The event includes great door prizes and access to Greater Concord’s entrepreneurs, community and business leaders. Attendance is complimentary and open to all who wish to attend.
