Mini-Taste of Pasadena September 29th at Paseo Colorado
This year, for the first time, we are moving our annual Business Showcase and Mini-Taste of Pasadena to Paseo Colorado on Thursday, September 29th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Vendors and exhibitors will set up in the public area of the outdoor mall. Again, we are inviting our new member restaurants to provide free food samples to visitors, as well.
Our annual showcase and expo is an inexpensive way to promote your business to the Pasadena community. The showcase is a great business-to-business networking event as well as a way to gain visibility with the public at large. Once again, the we are very pleased that the Foothill Workforce Investment Board is co-sponsoring the event.
The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase, and Mini-Taste of Pasadena will be held at the Paseo Colorado at 260 East Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. This year’s event will feature exhibits by a wide variety of Pasadena area businesses. Parking will be validated.
The event will also provide a forum for our annual contracting connection. Major companies and public entities from the area will have procurement and contracting personnel at the Showcase to explain how local businesses can become vendors.
Participation is open to anyone and Chamber membership is not required, though membership means discounted fees for Showcase participation. To promote their distinctive menus, several new member restaurants will provide samples of their fare for those in attendance. Businesses pay for exhibition space, but the public is invited to attend for free. In conjunction with the event, El Cholo and Noor Restaurant and Ballroom will host happy hours for those attending the event at their restaurants on the second floor at Paseo Colorado.
Our Business Showcase is the Chamber’s largest networking event. Dozens of businesses take advantage of the opportunity to present their products and services to other businesses and those from the public who attend. We are hopeful the new location will make the event more accessible to the general public, as well.
Those who would like to be exhibitors or who would like more information about the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase can call the Chamber office at (626) 795-3355 or visit www.pasadena-chamber.org.
