2019 Business Networking Extravaganza January 29
The networking event will officially start at 12:30. From noon to 1:00 a walking lunch will be available. During the next two hours staff from MSC camps will have the opportunity to meet with the representatives from various MSC businesses. When possible, we encourage you to offer show specials. If you let us know what your show specials are ahead of time we will help market this information to our member camps. Around 2:15 pm we will hold the MSC raffle. Any staff from camps are eligible to win BUT they must be at the drawing to win! We will also have some raffle items for business members who are present. If you would like to contribute something to the raffle, please indicate so in the attached registration form. We anticipate that there will be about 65+ businesses represented at the event. This year’s event will be held at the Italian Heritage Center at 40 Westland Avenue in Portland. Like last year we will have 12 event sponsors at $400 each. Please let us know if you are interested in being a select sponsor of this event.
