As members are starting a new year and budget cycle, it’s an ideal time to set aside some marketing dollars towards Chamber event sponsorships. These promotional opportunities make lasting impressions with customers and other businesses, while supporting the organization. Each event attracts a different audience and provides turnkey marketing with numerous benefits. The earlier the sponsorship commitment is made, the better the ability to take advantage of all of the benefits, which generally include a listing on collateral materials, newspaper ads, event programs, website, newsletter and signage at events.
Some opportunities to consider include:
Annual Meeting and Dinner
Monday, February 26, 2018
Featuring remarks by keynote speaker Allstate executive Howard Hayes and the presentation of the Business Awards, the Annual Dinner attracts over 200 corporate, civic and business leaders. For a small additional investment, attendees can purchase a sponsor table or individual sponsorship that communicates strong support early in the year for the organization and the business community.
