Back to HomeFeature Article - October 16, 2009 Trade show draws 30 plus businesses

The first-ever Frontenac County business trade show will be a featured event during Small Business Week.

Although the event will not take place until next Wednesday, Oct. 21, it is already a success because it has been so well subscribed to by the Frontenac County business community.

Thirty-three businesses - from real estate to broadband internet service, catering and cottages, to frozen food and hand-dyed textiles - a broad range of business will be attending the fair, which will more than fill the Verona Lions Hall.

“We wanted to create an opportunity for the public to learn about what is available locally, and to show their support for those businesses,” said Anne Prichard of the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation, which is organizing the event in conjunction with the Business Development Bank of Canada. “It will also provide an opportunity for businesses to network with one another, and that will also be positive,” Prichard said. “We are quite pleased to have had such a positive response.”

The public is welcome to attend this free event, which will take place between 3:00 and 7:00 pm at the Lions Hall, which is located on Verona Sand Road.
