Here’s an Olympic business fact: The Salt Lake Chamber’s Board of Governors is urging Utahns to support local businesses during the Games. Utahns should come downtown and around the other venues to enjoy the Games excitement.

The Chamber's Century Club is a powerful tool to strengthen customer relationships and team-build with employees, while sharing the once in a lifetime experience of the Games. It’s a place where you can come in all day from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and warm up, get some great gourmet food, and watch the Games live on giant screens. And it is priced so that everybody can enjoy it. Call the Chamber for more information at 328-5054 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
