Marketing Showcase Moves to Hinds Plaza

Hinds Plaza is the new location for the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 7th Annual Mid-Summer Marketing Showcase on July 16, sponsored by the Bank of Princeton.

“This year’s showcase is in partnership with the Princeton Public Library, which gives us the great space on Hinds Plaza that will allow us to grow the showcase,” said Peter Crowley, president and CEO of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We are very excited to be working with them on this event. To me, it proves how important this event is to the local business community and I’m very proud that the community sees the value in it.”

As of July 1, more than 60 businesses had signed up to participate and show what they have to offer to customers in the Princeton region. The event runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is free for the public to attend; last year more than 1,000 people walked through the showcase. The rain date is Wednesday, July 24.

In addition to businesses presenting their services and goods, more than 10 area restaurants will be offering samples. “We are excited about the new traffic from the Library’s patrons in addition to the traffic that is generated on a summer Thursday evening in Princeton,” added Mr. Crowley. “The committee evaluated several locations but we felt that it was important to maintain the location in Princeton.”

The Bank of Princeton has been the title sponsor of this event, since its inception in 2007.
