Chamber of Commerce is expanding the presence of the town and
its businesses, building consumer and media/business contact lists,

by displaying your own brochure. Instead of purchasing a booth
space, as well as the employee and travel expenses, you may pay
a fraction of the cost with similar effect. You may have any of
your brochures distributed with direct presence and representation,
cost dependent per show.
