EXHIB-IT! hosted another successful year end Jingle Mingle event for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce Annual Holiday Biz Gratis on Wednesday December 17th.  The event was catered by City Treats Parties, a local catering company, famous for their hors d’oeuvres and Village Inn provided lots of 4” mini pies, along with our Beer, Soda and Wine Sponsor Real Time Solutions. As a Third Year Board of Director for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce, I can truly share with you that they are “More than a Chamber – They should be YOUR Chamber!”

This event is one of the largest holiday events you will see in Albuquerque due to EXHIB-IT!’s reputation for hosting this annual holiday event and the June B2B EXHIB-IT! Event each year.   I love to put on these two events as they are strategic for people to network, build alliance partnerships and not just pass out business cards.  We had Gary Oppedahl, Director of Economic Development and Commissioner Wayne Johnson of Bernalillo County were present.  Both these men networked with other local business owners and managers to show their support for growing our local economy.

The event also celebrated the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce’s recipient of the award from the National Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for being the Largest Chamber of the Year 2014-2015.  Patrick Baldonado was the Master of Ceremonies from Sunrise Bank of Albuquerque with representative Ranee Tafoya of the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce. You could feel the holiday cheer in the crowd of over 350 attendees at our EXHIB-IT! Showroom.  We had a photo booth sponsored by Photobooth Rentals of NM to create lasting photo memories from the event.

Holiday cheer was the best I have seen with the economy growing and the stock market rising.  You can feel the connections made by those serious networkers at the event.  Two of our local strategic partners were present at the event – John Reimann with FastPark & Relax, where you can park your car in a covered parking area with no walking, waiting or worries while you travel and Steve Schroeder with Real Time Solutions, a website design and development company that blends high-end design with RTS’ robust and flexible CMS, real content.

Building alliance partnerships has been what has kept EXHIB-IT! strong over the past 14 years.  Partnering with like-minded companies is what can grow your business through referrals, building relationships and helping other businesses grow.  Being successful is not just about the revenue growth, as it is much more.  It is about building a company for sustainability, after the growth!
From EXHIB-IT!, we sincerely wish you a prosperous & memorable 2015 year!
