ShowBiz returns after seven years

ShowBiz Salem is returning after its last event seven years ago. ShowBiz is described as the mid-Willamette Valley’s premier trade show and job fair. The event is scheduled for June 4 at the Oregon State Fairgrounds.

More than 200 businesses are expected. Organizer Ben Punley, of Advanced Business Solutions, is providing free exhibitor booth space to regional non-profit organizations. 

“ShowBiz is where business meets (the) community,” said Punley.

The event, open to the public, allows businesses to promote themselves, their goods and services to the community, and to other businesses. It is one of the largest networking opportunities in the area.

The event will feature a job fair, as well.

The deadline to register a business or a non-profit organization for exhibitor space is Friday, May 13. Cost for business exhibitor spaces range from $295 to $695.
