The 36th annual Lacombe Spring Trade Show is just around the corner, and vendor spots are filling up quickly.

There is less than 25% capacity left, and organizers are encouraging interested vendors to sign up soon.

The event will take place on April 21st and 22nd from 2 p.m. 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. 4 p.m. respectively. The Spring Trade Show will take place in the fresh space of the Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex, and is being sponsored this year by Lacombe Ford.

Monica Bartman, executive director of the Lacombe and District Chamber of Commerce, said the event will host a wide variety of vendors, from financial institutions to insurance groups, to clothing vendors and community groups.

“There aren’t any specific kinds of vendors we are looking for at this point, we’re simply looking to fill the rest of our space. We’d really like to sell out the space again,” Bartman said.

On the Lacombe Chamber web site, there is information for business registration, as well as options for non-profit organizations.

The event is meant to bring together a wide variety of businesses, initiatives, programs and potential clients.

As well, it serves as a space for non-profit organizations to raise their community profiles and engage with the community at large about upcoming events and future opportunities.

“The community seems to respond very positively to the event. One indicator of that is the longevity of the event this year is the 36th annual trade show in Lacombe. It’s an event that the community appreciates and participates in, both from the vendor perspective and from the visitor perspective,” Bartman said.

“People want to have their different booths in the trade show, which attracts different kinds of people, and it’s just a reciprocal relationship where the businesses and community members both see the value in attending.”

For information on registering for the event, contact Helen Peck at 403-782-6888 or visit www.lacombechamber.ca.

Bartman added, “If people are interested in participating, we hope they get in touch with us soon. Usually, we sell out the space weeks in advance of the event, so we are encouraging people to reach out soon.”
