Similar to the 2011 Business Showcase, this year’s event will feature dozens of booths at the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino, each representing a different service or business in the Rim Country.

The 20th Annual Business Showcase, presented by the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce and Payson Regional Medical Center, is no longer taking applications for booths.
All spaces have been filled, the chamber announced last week.
The showcase is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 24.
Admission is $1 for those over 12 years of age.
All proceeds go toward repainting and restoring the town’s visitor center.
The showcase includes celebrating both Arizona’s Centennial and Payson’s 130th birthday.
All booths will have raffle prizes and are eligible for the “Best of Show,” “Best Theme” and “People’s Choice” awards.
Don’t forget to fill out and deposit a ballot for your favorite booth.
Prior to the showcase, the chamber will host a mixer at 5:30 p.m. March 23.
As a part of the 2012 business showcase, the Rim Country Chamber of Commerce and Gila County Superintendent of Schools Linda O’Dell have established the “Student Showcase,” which will open during Payson’s Business Showcase at the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino.
The student showcase will feature student groups from various Rim Country Schools duplicating the actions of businesses in the official showcase.
Student groups will compete for superintendent awards.
