Cornerstone Chamber Fall Trade Fair

A decades-old tradition for the folks at Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce returns to the marketplace on Tuesday, October 8th in the form of the Annual Fall Trade Fair on the Napier Campus of Lake Michigan College.

Businesses and organizations large and small have been plotting their exhibits and their marketing strategy for the one-of-a-kind trade show that is the largest business exposition in all of Berrien County, traditionally fillling the Grand Upton Hall of the Mendel Center for Arts & Technologies to near capacity.

Hosted by Cornerstone Chamber and sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Lake Michigan College Conference Services, the show is free to the adult general public in one of only a handful of events from the Chamber that is open beyond the lines of membership.  The only price of admission to the exhibit hall is a valid, current business card identifying your place of employment.  Children are not allowed into the hall which is designed to be both a business-to-business and business-to-consumer event showcasing a broad array of businesses and organizations.

The show runs from 4pm until 7pm that evening and will share the goods, services, capabilities and innovations of more than six dozen exhibitors from all types of business sectors.  You can see the complete list of exhibitors at the end of this article.

In addition to the professional trade show displays visitors to the hall will find numerous giveaways, prize drawings, food, fun, and more.  

Traditional attendees from the general public will be happy to note that a fair number of new businesses that have never been a part of the show are schedule to be on hand this year.
