And we are pleased to offer three high-profile events in the next 30 days that are all killer – with no filler!

Each event offers your company outstanding promotional opportunities that not only support regional economic development, but will also place your organization in front of an audience featuring many of the top business and political leaders in Lehigh Valley.

For as little as $500 you can stand out and increase your company’s profile at the following events.
