The Chamber is coordinating collaborative marketing for local businesses to make advertising more accessible by sharing costs and providing basic design services.

Our shared ad in the IoTA brochure (check out the inside of the back cover or see below) featured 8 local businesses: Ground Up Cafe and Catering, Melinda Wilde Artist (Our House Art Studio), Make Cheese with Paula, Gabriola Mystical Minerals, Nova Art & Craft Shop and Gallery, Island Meat & Deli, Gabriola Agricultural Association Co-op, and AngelStar Farm. Thank you!

We’re now offering spots in the Cultivate and Thanksgiving Studio Tour brochures.

To participate, you only need a high resolution image OR logo that works in a square format and confirmation that your directory listing info is correct – we’ll take care of the rest! 

The cost to participate in our Cultivate Festival collab ad is $100 + GST.

6,000 copies will be distributed by GAC on Gabriola and in Nanaimo beginning in May in promotion of the multi day music, theatre, arts festival in July! ‘

The cost to participate in the Thanksgiving Studio Tour collab ad is $150 + GST.

This is the 27th annual Thanksgiving Studio Tour – the brochure is used year
round by art lovers and visitors with 18,000 copies distributed around Vancouver Island and Gabriola.

One of the benefits of Chamber membership is the first chance at opportunities like this one. We’re pleased to invite any local businesses to participate.
