Business After Hours - Hosting/Sponsorship


The format of Business After Hours is to provide a casual, light atmosphere with the focus on business while providing an opportunity for the guests to visit one on one with the hosts and sponsors of the evening.

To successfully host a Business After Hours, the following criteria must be met:

  • Must be a Chamber member in good standing.
  • Have space to accommodate approximately 50-80 guests. A site visit by a Committee Member may be required prior to hosting confirmation.
  • Provide exclusive use of premises from 4:30 p.m. — 7:00 p.m.
  • Provide: 3 sponsor tables, I registration table, 1 prize table, 1 table for the hors d’oeuvres and a beverage sales space (unless otherwise notified).
  • On-sight P.A. system or advise otherwise in advance so that necessary arrangements can be made.
  • Coat racks available (weather dependant)
  • Removal of tables/chairs in order to allow standing room to promote networking atmosphere.
  • Provide complimentary hors d’oeuvres and food supplies from 5:00 through to 7:00 p.m. Please note: As guests will be arriving at varied times and enjoying an ‘after work’ beverage, a nice balance & selection is important.
  • We suggest beverages be limited to beer, wine, and pop. Drink prices are left to the discretion of the host location.
  • Pay a hosting fee of $150.00*
