The Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce is hosting its Annual Business Summit on Thursday, October 5th from 5pm-7pm at Ocean City Yacht Club in Ocean City, NJ. The purpose of the summit is to provide information about the local economy to the local businesses so that they may make informed planning and marketing decisions for next year.
The Chamber’s Economic Development Committee has been gathering and compiling information from different business segments, the government, local organizations, and through tourism surveys. This information is being processed into the new Ocean City Value Index which will aid in planning for the future. This valuable information will be presented at the Summit.
