Business promotion is a daunting task for even the most motivated entrepreneur, especially considering the long hours and the difficulty of putting thousands of angry squirrels onto logo-bearing T-shirts. Network the easy way with today’s Groupon to a holiday expo hosted by the Large Vision Business Network Mixer at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino on Tuesday, November 29 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get admission for two (up to a $20 value).
- For $18, you get admission for four (up to a $40 value).
Children 12 and younger get in free, and the first 200 kids to greet the event’s Santa Claus can take home one of Santa’s gifts. The first 50 adult attendees 21 years or older will receive a three-day, two-night hotel vacation to one of 20 cities.
Organized by Paula and Sylvester Jackson, who were honored in 2008 by the Las Vegas City Council for their promotion of small businesses, the LVBNM holiday celebration gathers more than 50 local businesses to showcase exceptional goods and services and foster networks between consumers and fellow business owners. The evening’s gingerbread-house contest pits competing Las Vegas youth organizations against each other in a sugary showdown, with the first, second, and third winners taking home cash prizes to their respective organizations and all of the gumdrops ransomed inside each cookie fortress. At the celebration’s chef’s corner, guests can sample delicious holiday recipes and desserts. Kids and prepubescent adults who meet Santa can whisper holiday wishes, make gift requests, or demand refunds on out-of-tune Tickle Me Elmos.
