The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce’s annual Prosperity Business Trade Show is fast approaching. The show will be held on September 10th, 2014, at the Morrow Building and will feature more than 100 exhibitors. The annual show is comprised of members of the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, and features unique and cutting edge businesses from all corners of our economy. Last year, the show underwent a radical change, introducing a brand new Network Cafe featuring a cash bar, catering and free coffee.
This year, show sponsor Microage will be showcasing the latest technology in the PTBOCANADA.com Microage Network Café. In addition to the new Café (that we're a sponsor of this year), the Chamber partnered with the Greater Peterborough Innovation
Cluster and their startup incubator, known as the Cube, to create a brand new “Innovation Zone”. It was in this zone that International Award Winning scientist Adam Noble’s company, Noble Purification, was officially launched. For 2014, the show promises even more collaboration with Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster, featuring an even larger Innovation Zone.
“As the premiere Peterborough business trade show, we believe that the Prosperity tradeshow is the ideal opportunity to showcase the best innovations and most promising entrepreneurs that Peterborough has to offer,” says Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster Executive Director Martin Yuill, adding “We look forward to utilizing the Innovation Zone to profile both new technology based start-ups as well as our supporting partners in the entrepreneurial ecosystem."
Peterborough Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Stuart Harrison remarked, “The Prosperity Tradeshow is one of my favourite events of the year because it truly showcases the very essence of what it means to be entrepreneurial. There are businesses of all sizes from single entrepreneur start-ups all the way to international corporations. It is truly remarkable to see the business community come together to show us just how incredible our city really is.”
The show will take place on September 10th from 12 to 7 p.m. at the Morrow Building (next to the Memorial Centre).

At the Peterborough Chamber Business After Hours & YPG Christmas Social last night (December 3rd), Manager of Membership Services Karen August announced upcoming changes to the Business After Hours meetings. The regular Business After Hour meetings will be transformed into the Peterborough Business Exchange (PBX). Each month, a different local group or organization will take part in the meetings and everyone will have a chance to collaborate and exchange ideas. The first PBX event will take place January 7th, and the guest group will be the Peterborough DBIA.
The hashtag #LoveLocalPTBO was also unveiled, which can be used to tie together great Peterborough experiences.
This evening from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., come on out to the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce (175 George Street North) for All-You-Can-Eat Cupcakes hosted by Chacho's Bakery. It's only $7, and $2 from each person will be going towards Five Counties Children's Centre. Space is limited, but you can reserve your spot by contacting Jamie from Chacho's by email or by phone at 705.868.6542.
