The Barter Company’s 2016 Holiday Barter Show

Businesses Use Barter Trade Show to Complete Holiday Shopping and Reward Employees

It’s that time of year again when companies are deciding what to do for the Holidays. Like many other business owners, you probably have a long list of gifts to buy for clients, friends, employees, and vendors. Employees might also be expecting a year-end or holiday bonus. The Barter Company’s annual trade show is the solution for all your Holiday gift and bonus needs.


Each year, The Barter Company hosts a Holiday Trade Show for its entire network of clients. In 2016, the show moves to a new location at the Metropolitan Club at 5895 Windward Parkway in Alpharetta on Saturday, November 5 from 10 to 3. This year’s show will feature a select group of barter clients that will help you complete your “to do” list for the Holidays. Find the gifts you need at the show and provide your employees with a barter gift card to shop the show themselves as a great bonus idea.


The show is open to barter clients only. For more information, please contact The Barter Company’s office at 770-591-4343. Plan to come to the Holiday Trade Show and enjoy shopping, food, fun, and entertainment and you won’t spend any cash … it’s all on barter!
