Congressional candidates to attend Chamber’s trade show

SALISBURY — A number of candidates for the 13th Congressional District will be at the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce’s May 5 trade show.

Chamber of Commerce President Elaine Spalding said seven of the 22 candidates have confirmed they will attend the trade show, which starts at 2 p.m. at West End Plaza. The trade show is the chamber’s largest networking event. It’s a business-to-business expo with more than 80 booths.

Several of the booths will offer door prizes in addition to the grand prize at the end of the event.

Congressional candidates are scheduled to mingle with attendees during a business after hours event that starts at 5 p.m. on May 5. The 22 candidates for Congress include 17 Republicans and five Democrats. The massive field will be narrowed to one from each party on June 7 during party primaries.

In honor of Cinco De Mayo, the event will include free Mexican food at the business after hours mixer. A cash bar for beer and wine will also be available.

Trade show booths are available for chambers members at a cost of $300 and non-members at $495 by Friday.

The trade show is free to attend. However, booth space requires advance reservations. For more information about the trade show, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 704-633-4221 or info@Rowanchamber.com.
