The Members’ Open is just 4 weeks away! It would be great to have you out, whether you can join solo or field a team. Keep in mind that all guests, colleagues, clients, and future-members are welcome! If you haven’t attended in the past, it’s a wonderful event to connect with the local business community and your fellow Chamber members.

And if you suck at golf – you’ll fit right in! All levels are encouraged.

We’ve also put together some fantastic sponsorship options designed to provide unique, engaging, and fun exposure throughout the day. Use a day at the links to elevate your brand, hand out swag, and generate leads for your business. Host-a-hole for just $200!

The event is also an important fundraiser for the Chamber. If you’re unable to attend, we hope that you’ll consider donating products or services to the raffle, which also provides a great opportunity to raise your profile. No donations are too big or too small.  We’re also looking for swag to add to our golfer goodie bags.

Gordon Street Marriott Conference Hotel

NANAIMO CHAMBER WELCOMES NEW HOTEL WITH MAJOR BOOKING REQUEST


The Nanaimo Chamber has welcomed the confirmation of the Gordon Street Marriott Conference Hotel with a challenge to help host the 2021 Canadian Chamber of Conference Executive & Policy Convention —  a first for Nanaimo.

The Conference is scheduled to visit the western provinces of Canada every three years. In a preliminary discussion between BC Chambers at their conference last fall, Nanaimo was the only BC Chamber to express interest. The Canadian Chamber invited a formal ”Bid 2021 Application”. That has been accepted in Ottawa and further discussions and considerations will continue to June 30, 2019.

The annual Canadian Chamber event attracts 500 plus delegates and their spouses. It would not be possible to submit a bid without the projected completion of the Marriott Courtyard hotel in time. Other accommodations will also be required throughout downtown. The event is estimated to have an economic impact on Nanaimo of just under $1 million.
