The Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce’s business showcases are the Valley’s largest business promotional and networking events.

This year, the chamber’s annual Expo has been replaced by three seasonal showcase events, designed to highlight the geographic and business diversity of the Valley.

The Business Showcase in downtown Sonoma is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, at the event center at Ramekins Culinary School, 450 W. Spain St.

The showcase provides an unmatched opportunity for local residents to explore the marketplace of products and services offered in the Valley. From advertising and public relations to health-care providers, and from financial services to caterers, a wide range of businesses will be on hand to provide information, answer questions, and make connections.

Admission is free to the public, and includes food and wine samples.

The showcase is also an excellent way for local businesses to connect with a wide range of professional services providers here in the Valley, from payroll services to energy independence specialists.

A limited number of spaces remain for chamber member businesses to reserve table spaces at the showcase. Showcase spaces can be reserved for $150 (no charge to food and wine businesses), with packages available for nonprofits or those interested in showcasing at the fall Carneros Region event as well.

Deadline to reserve space is Wednesday, July 23. Contact the chamber at 996-1033.
