Lake Country businesses shows off for UBCO

Lake Country Chamber of Commerce to put its best foot forward at UBCO with a trade show.

An exclusive Lake Country trade show will demonstrate to staff and faculty at the University of B.C. Okanagan the kind of business power immediately to their north.

This one-of-a-kind event takes place on campus, Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The Lake Country Chamber of Commerce has sold out tables to a wide range of Lake Country ventures, from drugstores to dance schools. Three restaurants—The Jammery, Routes Grill and Canadian 2 for 1 Pizza—will offer guests a light lunch.

“This is an excellent opportunity to showcase what Lake Country has to offer to everyone at UCBO,” said Linda Wilson, Chamber manager. “Our community is an easy 10 minute drive from campus, along Hwy 97, and it’s well served with public transit.”

Lake Country offers easy access, full services like medical and dental, a variety of retail and supply outlets, and a desire to become a UBCO destination.

The Trade Show works both ways, Wilson said. It is a chance for local businesses to gain exposure to the faculty and department purchasing leaders, and also for UBCO to explore doing business with Lake Country.

The Trade Show is one part of an overall initiative by the Lake Country Chamber to promote their community to all of UBCO, including the student population.
