The main functions of the evening are:

Guest speakers later in the evening are Brian Mulligan, Governor’s Account Executive from the State of Maine Department of Economic and Community Development; William Card, Economic Development Specialist from the Small Business Administration; and Janet Roderick, Certified Business Counselor from the Maine Small Business Development Center.
Businesses can stay for the entire evening, have table space to display their business/offerings which may help to draw in new customers or come for awhile to look over the displays and network. Obtaining table space to display your business offering is easy. We just need to know if your business can share a table or needs its own table and if the business needs electricity for its display. Registration deadline is Friday, March 28, 2014 at 5:00 pm.
In addition, the Town and Chamber of Commerce will be advertising the event to the public so there will be citizens and other businesses attending to look around at the displays. The sooner businesses sign up, the more publicity they will receive.
