Network, Promote & Market
The Nantucket Chamber wants to be a partner for your business and the community. We support businesses through networking, educational and promotional events, and marketing. Looking to get involved? Learn how to host a Business After Hours, be a presenter at an educational workshop, or partner with us to do a ribbon cutting for your business!
Business After Hours
Business After Hours are member-exclusive networking events "after normal business hours" that are designed specifically for our small- to medium-size member companies, who want to expand their network of business contacts, generate new business leads and learn the most effective strategies for networking. We host Business After Hours every month (with exception of the Summer months) and sometimes more then once a month. Members pay $20, and non-members pay $35. For people who didn't register, it's $35 at the door.
Business After Hours hosts have the ability to showcase their business(es). These events are flexible and hosts can partner with other members to showcase themselves. As a host, you will be in charge of setting up the event. You get to pick a Non-Profit Spotlight to do a 50/50 raffle at the event, the host(s) get to tell everyone at the event about their business, and have the option to giveaway some of your business swag. There are many opportunities to market your business through hosting (or partnering with) a Business After Hours; spotlighted in our e-newsletter, spotlighted on Facebook & Instagram through event promotion, handing out or doing giveaways that are related to your business, getting to tell attendees about your business during our "thank you" and giveaway section of the night, and MORE.
These events usually are catered with food and drinks. How you want it to look is up to you. You could have an open bar, cash bar, or we've even done a wine tasting. You can have passed apps, buffet style platters, or a mixture of both. To host an event please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here at the Chamber we pride ourselves in helping to educate our members in areas that will help their businesses. We have done workshops on starting a business, social media, new laws that effect businesses, and more. Each event looks different, from size & venue, to food & drinks, to having handouts or being completely digital. We also host education workshops. All Education Workshops are free or discounted for Chamber members. Email email@example.com if you are interested in presenting an education workshop.
