Correction - Lakes of Valparaiso Ribbon Cutting is on October 3rd

Get out your favorite team jersey and paint your face in team colors, because  Chamber Network Night is coming to help you score great networking opportunities!

On Thursday, October 19, from 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., the Porter County Chamber Coalition will host the largest business-to-business networking event in the region.

Last year, over 1,000 business professionals toured the  Porter County Expo Center  looking for the best new products and services offered in Porter County.

The theme is all sports, all night!  The possibilities are endless to decorate your booth to fit the theme. Be creative and enjoy a touchdown, or a basket, or a home run, or a GOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL! Don't feel you have to dress up - the main focus is to network with other businesses.

If you don't have a booth, don't fret!  Admission is free and there will be lots of opportunities to gain new leads and even win some great prizes.

Make sure you mark your calendar, because if you do business in Porter County, this is where you need to be!

Special Workshop

The Valpo Chamber Partners (VCP) program provides members with options for streamlining their Chamber sponsorship opportunities, while enhancing their visibility and promotional opportunities.
This annual marketing investment prominently promotes member businesses on signage, inside Chamber publications, on the website, on the mobile app, and at events throughout the year. The VCP is a terrific way to gain extensive exposure and valuable name and logo recognition.
The VCP offers four partner packages - Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze - at four price points. Each package includes incentives, complimentary tickets to events, special recognition and promotion, and sponsorship of high-profile networking and educational events.
To inquire about the available packages and their specific benefits, contact Danielle Oeding, at (219) 462-1105,  [email protected].
