Banks to barber shops, hotels to hospitals, the annual Showcase of Keys Businesses, presented by the Key West Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Jacobs, brought scores of businesses together on Sept. 15 at the Marriott Beachside Hotel.
Promotional booths filled the room, as representatives offered giveaways and information about their products, services and, in many cases, job openings.
The chamber of commerce has presented its trade show for more than 30 years, with occasional interruptions due to hurricanes and pandemics.
The event is free and open to the public in the afternoon. In the evening, the show is open to chamber members and their invited guests, who enjoy beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres as the show turns into the chamber’s monthly after-hours networking event.
