Boone Business Exchange

Generating business referrals to help each other prosper

The Boone Business Exchange meets each Tuesday from 8:30-9:45am at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Boone.

What is the Boone Business Exchange?

The Boone Business Exchange is a business to business referral network organized through the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce. The group meets each Tuesday from 8:30 – 9:45 A.M. at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Boone. The first 15 minutes is networking and the meeting begins at 8:45 A.M.

The focus of each meeting will be to develop an understanding of each other’s business so that we can refer friends, business associates, and clients. During each weekly meeting, each group member is provided the opportunity to introduce their business/service/product to the group and the group then breaks out into smaller groups where they can discuss specific referral opportunities one-on-one.

What are the benefits?

The Boone Business Exchange provides opportunities for its members to connect with other businesses, share best business practices, and generate referrals. The group’s emphasis is placed on building professional relationships with your fellow members and creating a solid network of referrals and resources for operating your business.
