The Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Tanya Secord, is pleased to bring the first annual Spring Expo to our community.

The Coast Hillcrest Resort Hotel will host the event on Sunday, May 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show will offer attendees the opportunity to connect with Revelstoke business owners, many of whom are home based.

The Hillcrest is the perfect setting to enjoy spring views of our majestic community and take advantage of the rare opportunity to experience chef Saar’s fabulous brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for only $14.95/person.

In past years the Chamber has been host to larger trade shows but found that it was difficult for some of our local businesses to participate as it was cost prohibitive. Our goal with the 2014 Spring Expo is to allow local entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses and raise awareness of the products and services available in our community.

The Chamber has been active in the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) that was completed in 2013. The action plan of the ICSP is designed to provide direction for the community to continue to move towards sustainability. The plan identifies the key priorities of environment and climate, social & culture, and local economy.

The Chamber has been tasked with several actions relating to the local economy.  A high priority item is to create initiatives that support small and home-based businesses.

The Spring Expo is a great opportunity to showcase this sector of our economy!

Another way the Chamber supports business is through the business directory on www.revelstokechamber.com. This easy to navigate search function offers opportunity for members to attract new business as well as offering consumers a quick and easy way to source products and services locally. This is an essential tool to connect with  those businesses that do not have a web presence or store front operation.

A variety of products and services will be on display at the show. Spring brings new life to outdoor spaces, gardens and patios.  Indigo Landscaping is ready to help you create your perfect outdoor retreat or sustainable dream veggie garden. Or come meet Revelstoke’s largest property management team renowned for their customer service and care of your home or office space.

Big Mountain Kitchen & Linen will be demonstrating their latest cookware and knives from Zwilling J A Henkel; bring your favorite knives for a free sharpening!

There is nothing more refreshing than a home makeover! Vicki, with VH Design, offers professional consultation in space design, colour selection and trade pricing on quality custom upholstered furniture, fabrics, window treatments and rugs.  One new piece can be your inspiration to a simple refresh of your living space.

The Spring Expo is a great opportunity to relax, peruse products and services in an informal setting, meet new people and share new ideas. Learn more about therapeutic riding, financial strategies, computer consultation and repair, community on-line news access, and booking your next big trip!

Discover ways to spice up your meals and the benefits of healthy body care products and personal services. Experience artful living, through taking up painting or enjoying your morning coffee with a Vistige Pottery, handmade nature mug.

A sustainable community depends on everyone working together -— it cannot be achieved by any one party acting alone. Please join us on Sunday to check out the show, meet friends and treat yourself to a fabulous brunch.
