bANQUET fACTS:
The Sikeston Regional Chamber Annual Awards Banquet will be held Thursday, April 23rd at the Sikeston Armory. Help us honor our community’s movers and
shakers with the banquet theme “Havana Nights.” We will once again have the opportunity to showcase your business to the over 400 banquet attendees. With
each table reservation a business may decorate a table to reflect their company and display their product. You MUST sign up to decorate a table by April 13th,
2015.
Here are the simple guidelines:
Your responsibilities:
1. Decorate a table to reflect your business. Each table will seat 8 people and is a round banquet table.
2. Pick up table decorations at the Banquets conclusion. (The Sikeston Regional Chamber is not responsible for any items left on the table after the Banquet)
3. No candles or fire hazard materials per the Armory’s regulations. Flameless and battery operated are permitted
4. You are permitted to provide a multitude of items, including a centerpiece for giveaway, merchandise for each seated table guest, or simply informative material that you will be collecting at the end of the night.
The Chamber will:
1. Have the building open from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on April 22nd for decorating tables and again at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on April 23rd.
2. The Chamber will provide tablecloths, which will already be on the tables for your use.
Use your creativity! Remember some of the beautiful tables we had last year? The wonderful door prizes and table favors were enough reason to come to the
banquet. You must reserve your table and confirm to decorate! Call or email to commit to decorating a table and showcase your business. Wristbands for alcohol
are available with purchase of ticket for a small donation; these can be purchased at the door separately or invoiced to your business beforehand. For questions or
