Sponsorships deadline is March 24

The Economic Development Department, in partnership with College of Southern Maryland’s Entrepreneur and Innovation Institute, is hosting the IGNITE Charles County Business Resource Fair on Friday, May 12 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the College of Southern Maryland La Plata Campus (8730 Mitchell Road, La Plata) in the Center for Business and Industry building. The free event provides an opportunity for local business owners, entrepreneurs, and dreamers to learn about local, regional, state, and federal agencies and organizations that offer free- and low-cost services to support and assist business growth. 

Two sponsorship packages are available for the business resource fair: 

  • Three $500 meal sponsorships are available—one each for breakfast, break, and lunch. Sponsors will receive signage at the event, their logo on the handout, verbal mention at the event, and social media mentions. 
  • Five IGNITE sponsorships are available for $1,000 each. IGNITE sponsors will be featured in professionally-produced, five-minute videos used to promote the event on Charles County Government Television, social media, and the Economic Development Department website at www.MeetCharlesCounty.com. Videos will also be played at the event. In the promotional video, you will have the opportunity to tell your story about what ignites your business. 

The deadline to receive sponsorship advertising is Friday, March 24. Those interested in sponsorships should contact Michelle DeSoto at DeSotoM@MeetCharlesCounty.com or 301-885-1340.
