The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce is The Voice of Business in our community. We work with and on behalf of our member companies to promote the economic diversity of our community and to promote it as a business friendly community.Our members support the Chamber and the community in a variety of ways. Sponsorships of our events and advertising in our materials are two of those opportunities. Contact the Chamber office at 250-756-1191 for details on any of these opportunities.
The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce Electronic Member Roster is your business resource with a directory of up to date information on Chamber members. In business having the right information is critical and for that reason we moved to an Electronic Member Roster. The Member Roster is a highly sought-after marketing tool, making it an excellent advertising medium. Increase your visibility, target new customers and drive traffic to your website by advertising in the Electronic Roster and introduce your business to Chamber members and the world 24/7.
With over 700 members the Nanaimo Chamber has considerable reach among the business community in the Central Vancouver Island area. For just pennies a day you can tap into the power of the internet by advertising on the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce website. By taking advantage of website advertising opportunities you increase the awareness of your company not just locally, but internationally also.
The Newsline is the monthly voice of the Chamber designed to inform members and the business community about Chamber events, training opportunities, new members, and to offer insightful articles. It’s distributed electronically to over 800 people and available on-line on our website. Advertising in the Newsline is available; rates are very reasonable.
