Oakville Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Business Development Bank of Canada, hosted the Annual Small Business Week “Business After Hours Trade Show” for Chamber Members and their colleagues. This year the event had become so popular that over 100 businesses were on hand, often with elaborate displays designed to delight and educate the visitors.

Networking was the highlight of the evening… along with the delicious food provided by the Oakville Conference Centre. The Chamber thinks of every “need”.The Blue Jays game was in progress and the Trade Show attendees were welcome to watch it on the huge TV screen brought in for the pleasure of all. It would have been somewhat better if the Blue Jays had won – but no one had to stay home because of the game – nor did they!
