2014 Continual Sponsorship Program Now Available -- Provide Great Exposure for Your Business
Opportunities to sponsor 2014 Chamber events and programs are now available. Sponsoring Chamber events are a great way for your business to get noticed and create a buzz for your company. Launching a new product line…expanding a new service? Sponsoring a Chamber program is an excellent and cost-effective way to get the word out to the Shelby County business community. What’s more, by sponsoring a Chamber event or program helps maintain – and in most cases increases your -- organization’s visibility. And, remember, the visibility our sponsors receive is more than just “at” the event – our sponsors also receive exposure prior to, during and after the events and programs through:
- Business Connections – the Chamber’s newsletter with an updated readership of 54,000+,
- E-Business Connections, the Chamber’s weekly programming updates,
- fliers for specific events which are distributed throughout the year,
- on the Chamber’s website,
- and follow-up marketing lists of attendees at the event or program that you’ve sponsored. Click here for a printable PDF of the 2014 Continual Sponsorship Program form.
