“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

2016 Regional Business Expo – Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce

By |August 24th, 2016|

2016 Regional Business Expo

Great Times, Great People, Great Networking.

We - Greenstone Media - had a great time partaking in the 2016 Regional Business Expo. An event hosted by Asheville Area Chamber of CommerceHenderson County Chamber of Commerce, NC, and Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce.

First we'd like to give a shout out to the folks at the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, Henderson County Chamber of Commerce, NC, and Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce, for coordinating this great event! We greatly appreciate all they do to promote our beloved community of Asheville, North Carolina.

Looking Back

This 2016 event is the first Regional Business Expo that we have had a booth setup in. We met many great people from the Asheville, Fletcher, and Hendersonville areas. Even folks visiting from South America - Venezuela to be exact. From 1pm - 5pm, our team really enjoyed mingling with locals and tourist alike. We had many visitors frequent our booth and enter in our Greenstone Giveaway.

Afterwards we enjoyed networking with entrepenuaers and fellow business owners from the greater Buncombe County area and beyond. We felt some pride arise when we saw some of our clients booths at the expo. It was also refreshing meeting new business owners and start-ups. Plus the brews provided from Oskar Blues Brewery and New Belgium were tasty! Don't you just love the Asheville scene for business? We sure do!

Looking forward to many more Regional Business Expos!

Cheers,

Chase Highley
Vice President

Greenstone Media has offset carbon emissions!

By |July 31st, 2014|

We believe you shouldn’t destroy that which does not belong to you. And the Earth does not belong to us. Although we do not “own” the planet, we are more then just inhabitants, as we can physically alter our habitat and change the paradigm with which we live on this planet. That would indicate […]
