County Campfire Business Retreat & Awards Event – Thursday, October 20
What is the County Campfire?
The County Campfire is an informal retreat for local business leaders, hosted by Frontenac Economic Development at RKY Camp, located on Sugar Bush Lane in Parham, Ontario. This event is meant to be a relaxed affair, where businesses can reconnect with each other, learn from each other, and celebrate our successes and growth over the past few years.
The event begins with a series of campfire chats with panelists covering a variety of topics including digital marketing, business finance, and tourism development. These workshops are followed by a networking session where old conversations can be renewed, and new business connections made.
To finish things off, we’ll have a dinner in RKY’s brand new dining facility along with the presentation of Frontenac County’s 1st Annual Business Excellence Awards.
While the event is free, the networking session will have a cash bar and there is a cost for the dinner, an optional purchase at the time of registration.
