Business Scene for the week of 5/11/2011

Plumas Business Exposition

Plumas County business owners are invited to showcase their products andservices at the Plumas Business Exposition Saturday, June 4, at the Plumas-Sierra fairgrounds. The event will be held in conjunction with the well-attended Plumas County Picnic. It is an inexpensive venue — just $25 — for retail, contractors, tradesmen, in-home and professionals to showcase their wares.

Each participant will receive a 10-by-10 foot area on the Gazebo Promenade and two weeks of newspaper promotion with a listing of the participating businesses in the May 18 and 25 editions of this newspaper.

Participants are encouraged to network with one another and the public with their display, maybe using demonstrations and perhaps even extending some valuable offers, such as handing out coupons for their store or sample products.  You won’t be allowed to sell goods onsite unless you want to pay a little more and rent space inside the main exhibit building — contact the fair staff for that arrangement.

Businesses should call their newspaper ad representative — we’ve partnered with the fair and are taking the space reservations — today to register or call 283-0800. The deadline to reserve space at this event is Wednesday, May 18.
