The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce is hosting a virtual trade show promoting members of its "Circle of Influence" now through July 31.
"A Virtual Tradeshow: Celebrating our Circle of Influence Members" is meant as "an opportunity for these members to showcase their business, products and services in a visually appealing, user-friendly online setting," chamber officials said in a statement.
"Hosting the online trade show is one way we are trying to remain relevant and present for the business community and general public during these times," stated Susie Weiss, communications and events manager for the chamber.
The event is intended to raise community awareness of these businesses and drive interest to their websites and social media pages during the pandemic.
The Circle of Influence is a group of local companies that the chamber has deemed instrumental to growing Pleasanton's economy and providing leadership in the community.
"(Member companies) fulfill an important role in safeguarding Pleasanton's future at the highest levels of chamber membership," chamber officials said. "The Circle of Influence is a catalyst for the exchange of ideas and engaging key leaders regarding both obstacles and opportunities for local business growth and economic expansion."
