EAGLE — It’s a bedrock principle for business success to make sure that the people who are most likely to buy your merchandise or solicit your service are well acquainted with your operation.

In the spirit of reaching out to the local population, the Eagle Chamber is hosting its first ever Eagle Business Roundup on Thursday.

According to Eagle Chamber board member Michelle Friedman, the 42 booth spaces available for the event were sold out by Sept. 1. The displays will showcase everything from long-time local operators to brand new businesses to home-based enterprises.

“The event is on the idea of a trade show or expo and we would love to have everyone come by,” Friedman said.

‘OPPORTUNITY TO MIX’

She noted the Eagle Chamber has wanted to produce a business exhibition for several years. After hiring chamber administrator Mary Ann Morrison, who has extensive experience with other chambers of commerce, that goal is being realized.

“This is finally fitting in with our timing and our desire to do things right,” Friedman said. “It’s an opportunity to mix, mingle and make business connections.”

‘FUN NETWORKING EVENT’

Because the emphasis is on presenting information and fostering connections, Friedman said the event will be a social evening with food and beverages and live music.

“I think it’s going to be a really fun networking event,” she said. “We all know that once you build a relationship with someone, business comes after that.”
