A Fireside Chat
About Marketing

Presented by Portage and Main

Are you looking to find new customers, and keep them coming back for more? Then this event is for you! We’re hosting a fireside chat at the Portage & Main southside location to discuss the ever-evolving world of marketing with two business owners who have had to be agile to find success online and offline in a difficult economy.

They will be sharing their successes, failures, as well as lots of tips for finding success of your own in 2023! 

Light refreshments will be provided during the chat. Directly following, we will be hosting a small business networking event at Canadian Brewhouse Ellerslie. This is your chance to connect with other business owners or ask any questions you may still have after the chat.

Space is limited so book your tickets today!

Proceeds will be donated to the Center For Race and Culture in Edmonton.
