Home-based business owners must find a way to promote their goods and services, and the 2014 La Salle Home & Life Show offers them that chance.
The show is organized by the La Salle and Area Chamber of Commerce. Chamber president Drew Howard said this year’s show will be bigger than ever. It’s planned for Sat., May 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"It’s our third annual Home & Life Show, and we’ve sold out exhibit space in previous years," Howard said.
To increase floor space, the show is moving down the road from the Kingswood Golf & Country Club to the new LSCU Complex’s gym. Howard estimates there will be room for about 20 additional exhibitors over last year’s 28.
"It’s a good way to network and get some exposure," Howard said. "It’s also great for the community to come out and see the different local businesses."
La Salle business owner Tom Bell agrees with Howard. He and his staff have promoted Jeni’s Food and Hardware at previous shows and he’s signed up for this year’s show.
"It’s a great way to promote your business to the community," he said, adding home-based business owners should consider participating to increase their community exposure.
Previous shows have seen crowds of about 150 people, and Howard is hoping for more this year.
There will be a children’s activity centre so parents can drop off their children and view the exhibits.
Exhibit space is still available. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 204-782-0596.
