    Advertising is great…but so are public relations and community affairs. Attending and sponsoring events and programs for the Camden County Chamber of Commerce includes all three branding strategies in one effective multifaceted strategy. Sponsorship through the Chamber initiatives gives your company the publicity and brand recognition you need in a positive and receptive environment. When you sponsor a Chamber event or program, your company benefits from:

    • Business Association with Exclusive Chamber Events
      Companies that want to be recognized for being industry leaders and community partners welcome the benefits of association with important business events. If your company needs to have name recognition with business professionals, corporate executives, community leaders, elected officials and other influential business decision-makers, Chamber events and programs may be just the answer.
    • Publicity - Public recognition can't be purchased – it has to be earned.
      Fortunately, we make it easy to ride on the Chamber's 20+ year-old heritage. Chamber events and programs are highly publicized…and so are their sponsors. Your company's brand name is included in collateral materials and print advertising to help you lock in this valuable public recognition.
    • Advertising - Chamber events are supported with their own advertising campaigns. Exposure in broadcast, print and on-site advertising ensures heightened sponsor brand recognition among a carefully targeted audience of business owners and executives.
    • Access to New Business Relationships - The one-on-one marketing aspects of Chamber events and programs allow companies to open relationships with dozens of new clients and customers. Of course, these events are also ideal for renewing and strengthening relationships with existing clients and customers.
