Having the opportunity to answer questions related to one of Novato's key assets (Gnoss Field) has helped our sleepy airstrip grow in prominence, thanks to NN. 

Ken M
Gnoss Field Pilots Association

Presenting at NN was great! It was nice to hear from the community directly and get perspective from them. 

Renee S. 
Gilead House

I loved spending my afternoon with the Novato Chamber group, engaging with the North Marin business community about a topic as critical as CA-37 has helped spread the word and concern. 

Madeline Peters
Mayor, Mill Valley

I applaud the Novato Chamber for bringing people from outside the Novato Community to help our businesses grow, Madeline spoke well about the issues facing Highway 37 and what we as businesses can expect in the coming years.

Alan A.
Exchange Bank

Whenever we do a project, it is vital to get buy-in. The Novato Chamber's NN allowed us to get in front of over 70 people to help bring this new development project to Downtown.

Split Tables

North Bay BUsiness Expo Tradesho Showcase San Rafael Novato Chamber

Philanthropic Partners

Does your business have a philanthropic partner? Do you support a specific charity or cause? This is a great opportunity for you to give your philanthropic partner some limelight. By connecting with a philanthropic organization or charity, your business may find it easier to network during the tradeshow.

Join Your Networks

Each of your businesses will draw different crowds. By joining together, you will expose your business to a diverse range of consumers.

 

 

Expand your Reach

A Split table will bring more people to you. Splitting a table allows your business to make connections with a more diverse crowd and potentially meet more people. The Novato Chamber believes in the strengths of cooperation in building success.

Your Diversity

The North Bay Business Expo and Community Showcase consistently draw a crowd because of the diversity of businesses located within a single event. By encouraging split tables, we ensure that the public and vendors meet more vendors than most other tradeshows in the region.

Cost Effective

Depending on how much material your business has to display, sharing a table can help you reduce the cost for this event.

The Novato Chamber's aims to keep the cost for businesses to participate in this event low, or at least offer low-cost options for participation

Tag-Team

Some businesses in cooperative fields can utilize a Split Table as a partnership between another business. For example, a mortgage broker and real estate agent may find it useful to offer their services and expertise together.

Taste vendors are the only category of business that is intentionally limited. In the end, the few vendors that join the expo are granted an immediate spotlight amongst the other vendors. Taste vendors are also supported in additional ways though added publicity before the event.
