Chamber-Related Marketing and Sponsorship Opportunities
The London Chamber of Commerce is proud to say that it does not sell or make public its membership list, committee lists, event attendee lists, or other contacts in electronic format. This policy is in place to prevent Chamber members from receiving unsolicited messages.
The Chamber has also included programming to help prevent member emails from being easily harvested from the online Member Directory.
Instead, to ensure that our members are able to connect to each other and to the business community, the Chamber provides a variety of targeted marketing opportunities so that members can establish relationships and build valuable, long lasting networks.
This includes organizing dozens of events and seminars each year including New Member Welcomes, Speed Networking and Business After Five; and encouraging the use of the Chamber's M2M Special Offers Program.
Below is a list of marketing and sponsorship opportunities available within the Chamber. For more information on how to get involved and Get Connected, Stay in Touch, visit the events page and/or networking programs page

Sponsorship opportunities range from financial contributions to donation of space, time, expertise, service and/or physical items. In-kind partnerships in particular provide a distinct opportunity to showcase member firms services and products.
Chamber programming throughout the year provides many popular and pragmatic sponsorship opportunities for the membership, and member firms have the opportunity to link their names to a variety of events and purposes.
Regular Event Programs
In most cases, for regular event programming, only one principal sponsor per series is required, which means that each event in that particular series does not require sponsorship support.
Major Annual Events
Each major annual event provides its own unique sponsorship opportunities; the sponsorship tiers per event always crafted carefully by Chamber administration. This formula includes consideration of event objectives, size, overall cost to organize, and other specific event needs.
In addition, the London Chamber is always interested in partnering with member firms on in-kind sponsorships if it means fellow members will benefit from said partnership.
For many events, the Chamber has in place a first right of refusal returning year clause and a non-competing clause; quite often you will notice the same principal sponsors return each year. What better proof that event sponsorship provides great return your investment!
Call 519-432-7551 ext. 30 for the sponsorship details and/or proposals on any one of these events:
- AGM & Member Appreciation
- Business Achievement Awards
- Funny Business
- Past Presidents' Golf Classic
- State of the City Address
