Booths for TahoeChamber’s 2014 Business EXPO — “Tahoe South in ACTION” are officially sold out with 93 local businesses participating in the South Shore’s premier business event happening 4:30-8:30 p.m. Friday. Participating businesses will put their best foot forward as they place their goods and services on display in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Convention Center for more than 1,200 anticipated attendees. The public is encouraged to attend.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet local business owners and get to know companies in the area, but they will also be treated to food samples, drinks and entertainment courtesy of the community’s leading businesses.

Participating businesses will vy for “Best Booth Experience,” a contest new to this year’s EXPO with the prize awarded to the booth with the most innovative and interesting display of the night. This contest is expected to be highly creative and competitive as businesses attempt to outdo one another with inventive displays.
