Events add to the vibrancy of a community, infuse valuable dollars into the economy, and draw visitors and residents to a downtown area. But they also can cause streets to be closed and disrupt regular business operations. So, what’s in it for you?
Join Visit Gahanna from 7:30-9:30 am Wednesday, March 22 at LaNavona (154 N. Hamilton Rd.) for a complimentary workshop with a panel of experts who will share their insights on how to make local events work for you. Learn ideas on how to create awareness of your business with event attendees and how to drive revenue into your doors (whether during or after the event). A continental breakfast will be served. Registration is limited. Call Becky at 614/418-9114 to reserve your spot. RSVP before Monday March 20, 2017.
