Next Idea Camp at Fishale on June 27th!

The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce’s wildly successful Idea Camps are still rocking and rolling thanks to the support of Southwest Airlines.

The upcoming Idea Camp is next Thursday, June 27th at FishAle Taphouse and Grill from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.  The event is made possible by businesses like MaceTech Security Solutions, Edward Jones, and Beachy Beach Real Estate.

Cost to attend is free for Beach Chamber members; $20 for non-members. For more information and to RSVP, call the Beach Chamber at (850) 235-1159.  Space is limited and you don’t want to miss this one, as guests will get to try some signature Fishale treats, including enjoying a special craft beer tasting!

Idea Camp is an interactive think tank with focused networking and an ‘ideashare’ of business dialogue but with a more limited group of people than other events, so the setting is more intimate and laid back.  Most people that start going to Idea Camps find it soon becomes one of their favorite chamber events.

See the flyer below for more information, including this month’s speakers, all local leader’s like yourself inspired to share and learn from others.  If you are interested in speaking at an Idea Camp please notify the chamber and ask for Marta Rose or email her at: marta@pcbeach.org
