We are experiencing a time where our business community is developing, growing and thriving like nothing Charlotte County has seen in many, many years. Our business community is rapidly expanding the value and desirability of our little piece of paradise. The Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce is reaping the benefits of membership growth, as so many businesses are seeing the value and becoming a part of our dynamic membership family.

11th Annual “Hottest Business Day in Paradise” Business Expo: Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022, at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center. The Expo is from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. and is free and open to the public. There will be over 100 local businesses showcasing and marketing their products and services. Traditionally, there will be between 1,000-1,200 attendees whose attention you will capture. If you are a chamber member and would like to participate as an exhibitor and/or expo sponsor, visit our website at charlottecountychamber.org or feel free contact our chamber office for all the details. To be in front of that many people in just a matter 5 hours, it would be an excellent opportunity for lead generation, sales or making those great business-to-business connections.
