Santa Cruz Business Fair
The Santa Cruz Business Fair is Santa Cruz’s premier opportunity to connect businesses, organizations, and the Santa Cruz County community face-to-face. The Fair's three-hour format at the Cocoanut Grove provides exhibitors the benefits of the Fair’s “store front for a day” and gives Santa Cruzans a chance to learn about the businesses, nonprofit organizations, and individuals who are changing the game in Santa Cruz County.
Every year, more than 100 businesses and nonprofit organizations introduce their products and services to the more than 2,000 attendees at this popular annual event. Local food, wine, and beverage companies serve up complimentary samples of their creations. Visitors can meander through the Grand Ballroom and Sun Room to visit the exhibitor’s booths and take in the gorgeous views of Monterey Bay. The 2013 Santa Cruz Business Fair will be on March 13, 2013.
Take a look at video highlights from the 2011 Business Fair.
One of our attendees had the following to say:
"As a first-time attendee to the Santa Cruz Chamber's Business Fair last Wednesday, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of exhibitors and the energy at the Cocoanut Grove. The wine and food were great and in abundance, even when I got there close to 5 p.m. The crowd was in a festive mood with live music, Santa Cruz Derby Girls skating about and the James Durbin Fan Club in full swing. I am a board member for KUSP and was impressed at the number of nonprofit organizations that were represented. It's obvious the Santa Cruz Chamber is working hard to promote the economic health of our area." - Kelly Wachs, Aptos
