Celebrating Tourism & Small Business Week with Networking, Film Commission and Rita’s Ice!
Business After Hours is the best and easiest way to get your name and your business out there and make new connections. Our popular networking events bring out a cross section of business people from many different industries.
With tourism essential to local businesses and non profit organizations, the region’s chamber has planned and are supporting several events taking place during the week. Starting the week with a Business After Hours with the New Jersey Picture & Television Commission at Stafford Heritage Park on Tuesday, May 3 from 5 to 7pm. This networking event will feature light refreshments along with an opportunity to meet with the state commission’s Marketing Director and Production Coordinator on how to successful showcase your business location or property to film makers and learn about the state incentives recently made available. Rita’s Ice & Frozen Custard of Manahawkin will be on site scooping up selected signature flavors and Stafford Heritage Park will be open for touring as well as networking.
The New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission has supported and nurtured this creatively vibrant and economically vital industry for over 45 years. The Commission’s knowledgeable and experienced staff assists filmmakers with all their needs — financial incentives, permits, regulations, production services, site selection and clearance. The Commission, part of the Business Action Center within the Department of State, attracts and supports production work and promotes infrastructure growth for the economic and image benefits the state derives.
The park is located on West Bay Ave, just west of Rt. 9 and across from the A. Paul King park in Manahawkin, There will be a suggested $10 cash donation at the event benefiting Southern Ocean Chamber Association and Stafford Historical Society.
