Here’s an Olympic business fact: Beyond the impact that the Olympics will have on tourism in Utah, are its impact on business. The Olympics are the greatest opportunity for networking that Salt Lake will ever see. Many groups are setting up hospitality centers for this networking. The Chamber, for example, is putting together the Century Club. The Century Club is a very modern and spacious hospitality venue located in the new Gateway shopping center. Designed by VCBO Architects, The Century Club will give Chamber members the chance to entertain their best clients in ultra-modern, huge 10,000 square foot luxury. The Chamber hopes that the Century Club will showcase Utah’s businesses as high tech, forward-looking, and fun. For more information on the Chamber’s Century Club hospitality center call 328-5054 or see us on the web at SaltLakeChamber.org.
