Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce April Business After Hours Networking Event

We love networking nights and our April event was no exception.  The Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce held our April Business After Hours networking event on Tuesday the 9th.  The event was jointly sponsored by DiParma Italian Table and WeNeedAVactation.com.  The event was held at DiParma and also served as a celebration for WeNeedAVacation.com who is celebrating their 15th year in business serving Cape Cod.

WeNeedAVacation.com founders Joan and Jeff Talmadge created the business as a way of matching vacationers and homeowners, and now lists over 3,500 properties on Cape Cod and the islands.  They spoke a few minutes about their love of Cape Cod and how much they’ve enjoyed growing their business and serving the needs of renters and vacationers.  With such a large audience and robust data WeNeedAVacation.com can offer excellent insight into the tourism and rental market from year to year.  It was positive to hear them report that the summer season of 2013 is up 3+ percent and more interestingly that vacationers are booking later into the shoulder season, than they’ve seen in the past.  This is excellent news for our local businesses!

The event also featured the amazing culinary work of DiParma Italian Table, widely recognized as one of the most popular Italian restaurants on Cape Cod.  We recommend following DiParma on their Facebook page as they often have great contests and discounts.
