Event Changes & Sponsorship Opportunities
2019 is flying by fast! After much deliberation, the Chamber Board of Directors has decided to streamline our main event schedule. We will not have Sunfest as we will officially kick-off the Barn Quilt Trail Program. The softball tournament will not be returning. We hope by simplifying our calendar, we can make the other events even better. You can find the sponsorship packages we have available for 2019 here . Let us know if you have any questions.

A Community Map of Berthoud
Inside our official Welcome to Berthoud magazine!
Another way to connect with locals and visitors to Berthoud!
Be one of the first to be part of the Berthoud Community Map this year? We have a limited number of sponsorship opportunities available that would provide you with this new dual sponsorship and market coverage.  
5 Reasons to sponsor the Berthoud Map
1. Print = Trust. Research shows even Millennials, who have no affinity with traditional media, trust print more than other sources, particularly social media.
2. Print is tactile. The tangibility of print ignites senses in a different way.
3. Print is utilitarian. Magazines & Maps are proven to endure & be cost effective. 
4. Print is permanent. We process, retain, and recall information better via print.
5. Print is swag. Print is the new digital. It provides fresh appeal in a digital world.
Call today so we can get you best placement and pricing!
Every print ad purchase also includes an Internet companion version with a live link at no additional cost!
