The Crowsnest Pass Chamber of Commerce has everything ready, and is set to host their annual Trade, Auto and Home Show, featuring local and area businesses in a wide array of service areas, all showing off the best that the community and the region have to offer.
This year's show will run once again on both sides of the Crowsnest Sports Complex in Coleman. The show will be open to the public from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Friday, April 16, and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 17.
Chamber president Rick Breakenridge says that the show is one of the Chamber's biggest annual fundraisers, and an excellent way for businesses to connect with customers in the community. "It's a good place to be," he says. "It's a pretty nice way to meet all of your customers."
The trade show, he says, is a strong way for businesses of any size to get word about their products and services out to people in the area, and to build or maintain an image. It also provides a forum for demonstrating equipment, showing off products, and obtaining feedback from the community.
Breakenridge says that this year's show is approximately 90 percent booked up. It is one of the only remaining trade shows in the region.
He says that there is good local support and strong representation from local businesses, along with several businesses from nearby communities such as Pincher Creek.
The show will feature a large display area for Border Building Materials, which is playing a large role in the show to promote their products and their new location after a fire destroyed their previous home in the Frank Industrial Park in December.
The show will also feature exhibits from dozens of other businesses, including Bridge City Chrysler, the Crowsnest Museum, the Blind Lady, Miller Performance Trucks, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, Sustainable Resource Development, the Spring Break Garden Centre, Wood and More, Country Encounters, Ironstone, the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village, and many more.
The Quad Squad is hosting a large number of off-highway vehicle dealers in their exhibit, which will showcase a wide variety of ATVs and related outdoor recreational equipment to local residents.
Everyone is invited to attend and see all that the Crowsnest Pass business and trades community has to offer.
