POSTPONED: Creating a Signature Event for your Business

POSTPONED: Due to concerns around COVID-19, this event has been postponed until a future date, to be determined. Once we have a new date set, we will notify all interested attendees as soon as possible.

We encourage you to continue to support our small businesses during this difficult time. If you need any information about food delivery and takeout, remote shopping options, or how to buy gift cards (spend money now to support local businesses, treat yourself to a prepaid activity later in the year!) — we are constantly updating our website with this information at Thank you for your support!


Competitive Edge is free and open to all businesses throughout Frederick County. This month’s session is all about creating special events.


About this Event

You’re Invited: Creating a Signature Event for your Business (POSTPONED)

Looking for a way to generate some new buzz around your business? Try hosting a special event! Events can attract new customers, reward loyal ones and create an exciting opportunity for your business to try something new. This month we’re looking at ways that retailers can spice up their events calendar… without overextending your time, budget and staff.

Arrive early to enjoy a free breakfast provided by Frederick Coffee Co & Cafe and Shab Row Tea Emporium. Doors open at 8am and the workshop begins promptly at 8:30.

Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Questions? Contact Leeann Crews at


The Competitive Edge Series provides business owners with the tools they need to improve their business and help grow their success. The Partnership knows that small businesses do not have easy access to training to continually sharpen their competitive edge. This series helps to fill that gap.

Sessions are held on the third Tuesday of each month, January through May, with workshops focusing on topics of interest to entrepreneurs. Each Competitive Edge workshop is offered at no cost to businesses throughout Frederick County thanks to support from PNC Bank and the City of Frederick’s Department of Economic Development. Mark your calendars and join us for the 2020 Competitive Edge series!
