Spring Expo Confusion

Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce

As Chamber members, we received the following email from our Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce providing some clarification over recent emails being sent to local businesses:

To our SSMCOC members:

The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce is aware that a private firm from outside of our community has been e-mailing local businesses to sell exhibit space for an upcoming event called the ‘Sault Ste. Marie Spring Expo’. 

Please be advised of the following:

  • The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce is in NO WAY connected with the ‘Sault Ste. Marie Spring Expo’, nor have we provided any endorsement for this event.
  • In accordance with our privacy policy, the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce has not provided any mailing lists or contact information for those businesses contacted.

The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce wishes to ensure that its members, and those businesses that have partnered with us during the 40 plus year history of our business exhibitions, are not confused by the use of the name ‘Sault Ste. Marie Spring Expo’ which is similar to our own ‘Spring Expo’ branding which we utilized until 2016.

Registration for the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce’s ‘WE ARE THE SOO EXPOS’ launched recently. You can find more information about registering as a vendor at any of our upcoming Expos at http://www.ssmcoc.com/membership/2018-expos

Your participation in the Chamber’s ‘WE ARE THE SOO EXPOS’ help support your local Chamber of Commerce and the advocacy efforts that we undertake on the part of local business.

Anyone wishing further information is invited to contact the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce at 705-949-7152.

Respectfully,

Rory Ring, CEO
Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce
