One of the best ways to gain valuable contacts, share knowledge and ideas, and embark on new opportunities is to attend, host, and sponsor Chamber of Commerce events.
Attending main events like the Annual Awards Banquet and the Owen After Hours are great for communing with your fellow business people and for putting in that oh-so-important networking time. These events are fun, lighthearted, and bring together community members so you can interact with those you may only know from a computer or mobile phone screen.
Hosting an event is a wonderful way to not only showcase your business or organization and the services it offers, but to get to know others and brainstorm together about opportunities to grow. Celebrate historic events, ribbon cuttings, and grand openings–we’ll help you along the way!
Sponsoring events is yet another avenue to make sure your business or organization gets even more exposure. When you sponsor an event, others are sure to notice and your business will become known as a leader in its niche as well as a positive influence on the entire community. Our Back to School Expo in July allows individual sponsorship opportunities for your business to give back to the youth of Owen County.
Owen After Hours is another great networking resource for your business. The main benefit of hosting an After Hours is the exposure your business will receive.

The Annual Banquet and Silent Auction is our largest fundraising event of the year. It takes the support of all of our community members to have a successful event. Each year, our banquet continues to break records in attendance and silent auction profits. There are various ways you can help the Chamber of Commerce exceed our fundraising goals. Silent Auction Donations, Award Nominations and attending the event are just a few of those ways. You can view the details of this years event by clicking here.
