The Cornwall Business Network held their First Annual Trade Show Wednesday at the Civic Complex.
The show, which is the main event of the year, gives CBN Members the opportunity to meet each other and showcase their products and services internally as well as to the general public. The event attracted more than 200 visitors–Not bad for a Wednesday night!
A wide variety of merchants, service providers and musicians filled salons A, B and C of the Civic Complex and even spilled out into the Hall of Fame. Visitors showed up not in a heavy flow, but a steady flow. Even Mrs. Claus came in to do some shopping.
“We are very happy with the turnout of our first annual” said Julia Lucio, president and event coordinator. “This was an amazing team effort and I think we did a pretty good job. The upcoming year is very promising for CBN. We now have 48 members and adding on constantly. I think you will see a lot more of us in the future.”
“It’s difficult to put into words last nights event – perhaps a perfect combination of business, community and non-stop energy.” added Brock Frost, co-founder and financial director of CBN.
The show doubled as a fundraiser for the Agape Centre. More than $115 and 600 items of non-perishables were collected during Wednesday’s event. A special thanks goes to all those who supported the cause.
