Happy Holidays from our family to yours

December 20, 2021

On behalf of our Board of Directors and chamber staff, we would like to wish every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season. This is a special time of year filled with family, friends, fun and much love. Our office will be closed on Thursday, Dec. 23 and Friday, Dec. 24 due to the Christmas holiday.

Last week, we had a phenomenal 43rd Annual Charlotte County Christmas Parade. You can see all the pictures and video on our FB page. If you weren’t able to participate or be one of the thousands who lined the parade route, please make sure you do so next year for our 44th Annual Christmas Parade.

Last but certainly not least, a BIG thank you to all our volunteers and chamber staff for your involvement, dedication and commitment to ensure everything ran smoothly and seamless.

11th Annual “Hottest Business Day in Paradise” Business Expo

Our 11th Annual “Hottest Business Day in Paradise” Business Expo is right around the corner. Our Expo will take place on Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022 at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. The first 500 attendees will receive a goodie bag. All attendees will have the opportunity to meet over 100 local businesses and see first-hand all the products and services they provide.

This is an optimal opportunity for any member of the Charlotte County Chamber to participate in this event. Traditionally, we get approximately 1,000–1,200 attendees that come throughout the day. This is the one day a year, each exhibitor will be able to showcase their business in front of that many people in a matter of only five hours.

We appreciate the support of our expo sponsors:

Platinum Title Sponsor: Chapman Insurance Group

Silver Associate Sponsors: Life Care Center of Punta Gorda, Michael Saunders & Company

Bronze Participating Sponsors: Dancing Moon Travel, Painting with a Twist and Sunshine Ace Hardware
