(Seguin) -- The Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce says it's running out of booth space for this year's Showcase Seguin. The annual business trade show will be held February 18 in the Seguin-Guadalupe County Coliseum.
Showcase Seguin Chair Kaylynn Hawkins says dozens of businesses will be on hand to show off the goods and services that they have to offer the community. She says only a handful of booths remain for the event, and she says business owners don't want to miss out on this opportunity.
"We will not dissapoint again this year. We had a great time last year. We had great attendance, great prizes and this year is no acception. So this year again, our theme is 'Get in the Game'. We want you guys to get in the game of Seguin and show your business. We're going to have a 'Show Me the Money' party this time. We're real excited about that. So a lot of people have probably been hearing folks around town saying -- show me the money! We're hoping to show the money at this party," said Hawkins.
Hawkins says Showcase Seguin is always a great deal of fun. She says they have several activities planned for the free daytime portion of the event.
"We do have tickets on sale at this time. We just started those. It's a $25 ticket as always for the evening event. The day time event is free. So we'd love for folks to come and check out what's going on in the daytime. Daytime things will consist of a 'Jeopardy' game going on during the day. We'll be giving away prizes for those participating in the game. Those questions and answers will be based on the vendors that have a booth at showcase. So vendors will get a little bit more bang for their buck too. More people will learn about them. Instead of just coming up to the booth and seeing what they have to offer, they're going to hear more about each vendor," said Hawkins.
Showcase is really divided into two events. The daytime activities are all free, but at night, they set up a huge party inside the Coliseum, and tickets are required for the "Show Me the Money Party."
"We have, of course, the evening event party with live music, drinks, food, more games and a life size 'Seguinopoly' game as well. So that should be a lot of fun. We have, of course again, Seguin Chevrolet. They're going to offer the opportunity to win a car as well as lots of other wonderful things going on. We're just real excited about the changes, (and we're) keeping it fresh. We're hoping to have a big turn out," said Hawkins.
Businesses interested in securing one of the final booths at the event are encouraged to call the chamber office today at 830-379-6382. Tickets for the showcase party are also available now at the chamber office. The tickets are $25 each. Ticket and booth registration information can also be found online at www.seguinchamber.com.
