One of the many benefits of Chamber membership is it provides a great opportunity for you to grow your network and increase brand awareness. Amplify these benefits by aligning your brand with any of our meeting and/or events through sponsorship.  Here are six reasons to consider promoting your business at a Chamber event:
  1. Brand visibility: Chamber sponsorships put your brand in front of audiences who may have not heard of you.
  2. Targeted marketing: Gain opportunities to engage one on one with people who are looking for what you provide. 
  3. Consumer perception: Grow your reputation through high-profile Chamber events.  
  4. Efficient lead generation: Meet your potential customers, learn about their needs and promote your product.  
  5. Community goodwill: Customers find value in brands that care about helping the community.  
  6. Business relationships: Events and meetings are great places to find fellow business members to build productive business relationships.

There are plenty of event sponsorship marketing opportunities available to fit any budget. To learn more contact Jennifer Hutchinson, Events Development Manager. If you connect with Jennifer before April 29th, your business will be entered into a drawing for a Golf Outing Hole and Tee sponsorship at the annual Golf Outing!
