Bring the High Country business community through your doors by hosting a Business After Hours

The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for its 2019 Business After Hours event series. Held on the second Thursday of each month, Business After Hours brings Chamber members to your location, providing an excellent way to present your business to the High Country Community. Each event lasts from 5-7 p.m. and attendance ranges between 75-150 attendees. 

If selected, businesses are required to pay a $150-dollar non-refundable deposit at the time of contract to secure the date. The host business must have adequate parking and provide food and beverage for an average of 75-150 attendees. The Chamber staff will use the deposit money to advertise the event to the business community. Multiple businesses may partner to host an event, providing the venue meets the host requirements.
