Lindale, TX, October 24, 2013: The effort is to bring business and community together to
connect, communicate, and network. Lindale Area Business Showcase will be held Thursday,
March 6, 2014, at a new location than past years. First Baptist Church-Lindale, located at 103
Van Street, will be the new venue for Lindale Area Business Showcase. Doors will open to the
public at 11:00a.m., and will remain open until 7:00p.m., when the Showcase will end with a
$500.00 cash prize drawing, plus additional prize drawings.
For 2014, the fifth year for this event, a need for more exhibit space, additional parking, and a
location central to downtown Lindale was greatly needed. Relocating to First Baptist Church-
Lindale will allow for growth in all aspects of the event. Exhibit space has been increased, as
have sponsorship opportunities. Leadership Sponsorship opportunities exist, in addition to space
availability for Network Exhibitors and Outreach Exhibitors. The schedule for 2014 includes
business development workshops, networking lunch, traditional door prize drawings every hour,
and ending with a “Cash Prize Party.”
“The relocation is a positive move for everyone,” provides Event Management Holly Rand,
Project Progress. “First United Methodist Church has been very good to our participants and
worked very hard to accommodate all of our needs every year. We will miss working with their
staff and members. The event has simply outgrown the facilities there, and First Baptist Church-
Lindale, just a few blocks away, was able to accommodate the growth.”
Businesses and non-profit organizations of all sizes are invited to participate in LABS. Exhibit
space ranges from $150.00 to $275.00, plus various sponsorship opportunities exist. To obtain
additional information on sponsorship and participation, contact event management Project
Progress at Holly@ProgressRocks.com, or phone 903-780-7969.
