The Chamber of Commerce has scheduled 10 Business After Hours events between 4 September and 6 December.
‘It’s an all-time high,’ Chamber CEO Wil Pineau said.
The 10 Business After Hours events do not include the opening night of the Chamber’s three-day Business Expo on 11 October.
Scheduled BAH events in September include the University College of the Cayman Islands on 4 September; The Royal Watler Cruise Terminal/Tortuga Rum Company on 13 September; and Cable & Wireless on 20 September.
In October, Tony’s Toys is scheduled for the 4th; the Cayman Islands National Trust on the 18th; and Cay Brew on the 25th.
Another three BAH events are scheduled for November: one on at Goldfield (Cayman) Corporate Services on the 1st; one at Caribbean Publishing Company on the 15th; and one at Jacques Scott on the 29th.
The busy stretch winds up before the Christmas holidays with the annual Island Companies BAH on 6 December.
Mr. Pineau said he thought the increase in competition on the island was one reason the Business After Hours events have become so popular.
‘Businesses need to get their products and services out to the people,’ he said. ‘Business After Hours gives them a chance to showcase their products or services.’
Typically in the past, there was only one BAH event in a month.
‘We’ve kind of relaxed the rules this year,’ said Mr. Pineau, justifying the change by saying the challenging economy has created more of a need for the BAH events on Grand Cayman.
