May 22, 2013. On Tuesday, June 11 from 3 to 6 p.m., the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual business showcase, Concierge 101, at Tanger Outlet Shopping Center. This event presents the chance for local businesses to showcase their services and goods by setting up a booth at Tanger Shoppes.
Terri Bailey of the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce urges businesses in the area to sign up for booths.
“We’re encouraging businesses to be as creative and outrageous as possible,” Bailey said.
Concierge 101 is a good way to spread the word about your business in a way that both locals and visitors will remember.
The Chamber invites businesses, especially those that offer activities for visitors such as restaurants, area attractions, entertainment, and outdoor adventure to set up a booth at Tanger Shoppes. Restaurants may offer samples of their fare, while other businesses may offer samples of their attraction in a memorable style.
In years past, businesses have promoted themselves in some imaginative ways.
One year, actors presumed humorous roles at their booth to promote a local theater, Bailey said. Original ideas such as this help your business to stick out from the crowd and get people talking about it.
“Right now, we need to focus on getting businesses to sign up for booths,” says Bailey. If you are a local business and would like to sign up to have a table at Concierge 101, contact Terri Bailey at 828-295-7581.
