MSBC’s Managing Consultant, Elizabeth Cornish, is pleased to offer this annual event in Huntsville,

“Working closely with the Town of Huntsville’s Economic Development Officer, the Huntsville/LOB Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Huntsville BIA, we have worked to put together an event to help businesses with some of the key issues local business owners face as they work to start, sustain, or grow. Being able to hold this event in Huntsville allows us to reach out directly to businesses in this area to help them build for long-term success.”

Huntsville’s Economic Development Officer, Lauren MacDermid, echoes that sentiment,

“We are thrilled to host this regional event in Huntsville and I encourage local businesses to attend. Not only will the event help with information sharing on new business trends, but it will allow for us all to gather in the same room to network.  When it comes to business, making connections is huge and we are excited to introduce you to local supports and resources. I hope to see you there!”

In addition to an informative agenda and round table discussions, attendees will enjoy snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and door prize opportunities. Be sure to bring your business cards because this will be the place to network!

This event is in partnership with the Town of Huntsville, the Huntsville/Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Huntsville BIA. The Muskoka Small Business Centre appreciates the generous support of sponsorship and in-kind donations to make this event a success.
