The eighth annual Spring Business Showcase is coming to the Silver Reef Hotel and Casino next week.
The event is a business-to-consumer tradeshow that gives local businesses the chance to generate sales, drive retail traffic and connect directly with consumers. The Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and Industry has sponsored the event since its inception in 2007.
More than 60 vendors from around the county have signed up for the showcase, and range from food service, recreation and tourism to print media, health care and travel.
The event offers free admission and free parking. Food, beer and wine vendors will have plenty of samples on hand, and the event will end with prize drawings.
The Spring Business Showcase will take place at the Silver Reef Hotel and Casino convention center from 4 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 19. For a complete list of participating businesses, visit bellingham.com.
