Be Seen. Be Noticed. Be Heard.
Position your company as a proactive business and community leader as you gain valuable marketing through the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches sponsorship programs. Research shows that consumers are more likely to think favorably of businesses that are involved in their Chamber and are more likely to think your products, goods or services are superior to the competition. Promotional opportunities help a business gain and maintain top-of-mind awareness for your products and services with the thousands of employees of the over 1500 Chamber members companies – your customers. The Chamber offers many programs and others can be customized to meet your marketing and budget objectives. For instance, INK & TONER USA is a small business that was looking for visibility. As sponsor of the Business Builder for three years they were able to interact with the attendees as well as receive logo inclusion in all Chamber communications promoting the event. “The exposure of our business, INK & TONER USA, in all Chamber weekly updates and e-mails increased our awareness within the community. We were able to meet potential customers by speaking at the Business Builder events twice a month. As a small business, all exposure is important to our growth,” said Jane Bloom, former president of INK & TONER USA.
The Chamber hosts more than 100 events and programs annually, focusing on key issues facing our community and celebrating the success of area businesses and individuals. Some of the Chamber’s signature productions, such as the State of the City Breakfast, ATHENA Awards, and Yappy Hour provide our members unique opportunities to increases their company’s visibility to business decision-makers and offer a targeted alternative to standard marketing. Chamber events reach key business owners and managers throughout the area and are communicated through the weekly Chamber Update, e-mails, monthly newsletter “Business Watch” distributed by The Palm Beach Post, as well as our website. “Grand Bank & Trust of Florida has benefited from its sponsorship of the annual State of the City address because it is exposed to nearly a thousand of the area’s prominent business leaders and residents. This sponsorship alone has put our bank’s name at the forefront of many people” said Russell Greene, President and CEO of Grand Bank & Trust of Florida.
Benefits of becoming a sponsor include enhanced networking opportunities, exposure to a broad cross-section of the business community, company featured in promotional materials developed by the Chamber for your business, and recognition at the event through sponsor signs, illuminated logo and podium announcements. Sometimes a custom sponsorship is created to meet the sponsor’s needs. “We saw the potential in the monthly breakfast parking sponsorship opportunity to engage – through humor – Chamber members and their guests each month with a series of small billboard featuring a rhyming message focused on the speaker’s topic. This sponsorship has given us a monthly vehicle to reinforce our brand and remind the business community that there’s an agency out there that knows how to make a big impression…that gets the message across powerfully,” said Carey O’Donnell, President of Carey O’Donnell Public Relations Group.
Tabletop displays at the Chamber monthly breakfast (including 2 seats) are only $175, Presenting sponsorship of breakfasts is approximately $3800, and sponsorship of a Power Networking event is $350. As you can see, there are many ways to increase your visibility with various Chamber events.
