Dutchess County Regional Chamber offers members valuable marketing opportunities
January 17, 2012 by James
While chamber membership is always good for its networking potential, the Dutchess County Regional Chamber is giving its members extra opportunities to market themselves.
Beginning with the chamber’s “Signature Monthly Networking Events”, Business After Hours and the Contact Breakfast are two regular gatherings where sponsors can engage in a little self-promotion among other things. In the case of the breakfast, the chamber describes the opportunity as follows:
“Contact Breakfast – Held the third Wednesday of every month at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel at 7:30AM with an average of 250 guests consisting of professionals, bankers, business owners, not for profit executives, corporate executives, decision makers. This is a structured event that provides an opportunity to network with the guests at your table, new members are recognized, and listen to a keynote speaker on topics that are in vogue to the business community. The sponsor has exclusivity and is recognized as well as given the opportunity to provide promotional material to each guest…”
Interestingly enough, the perks of sponsorship are fairly consistent throughout. Questions of brochure printers and business card printing aside, it doesn’t stop with these monthly meetings. There are annual and quarterly events to consider as well.
One notable event that’s coming up in February is the Annual Gala. Although there are multiple sponsorship berths available, this is a “first come first served” chance to get the company in front of people.
When events like the Legislative Action meetings and April’s Cosimo DiBrizzi Celebrit Servers Dinner are also taken into account, it becomes clear that Hyde Park companies have a wide range of options at their disposal.
