Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(Fairlea) The Greater Greenbrier Valley Chamber of Commerce put on it’s Mega Business Showcase and Marketplace at the fairgrounds.

It’s the chamber’s biggest event of the year drawing over 50 businesses from all over Greenbrier Valley. Ashley Vickers the Greater Greenbrier Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director said it’s all about exposure saying, “We want to expose [our business members] to the community. It’s just about letting the Greenbrier Valley know what our vendors have to offer here.”

Business owners say meeting people in a new environment helps with networking opportunities. Travis Farley owner of Travis Farley Design and a digital billboard company said, “It helps people around town say, ‘oh this is that person’. And they understand who you are and get to know a face too with a business.”

For Fruits of Labor in Rainelle exposure isn’t a problem, they just finished in the top twenty of the Sweetest Bakery in America contest, but the showcase also gave them a chance to promote some of their other projects. Tammy JOrdan owner of Fruits of Labor said, “We actually work with women that are in recovery from addiction and we work with at-risk youth as an addiction prevention program.”
