Marketing and Sponsorship Opportunities
Annually the Kalispell Chamber hosts over 110 events for the Flathead Valley Community, ranging in size, frequency, and style. Our members and investors play a crucial role in developing these programs and supporting our strategic plan and mission. Sponsorships of our signature events are ideal for any member business looking for local brand recognition and association with the Flathead’s premier business community. Please contact our Membership Development Manager, Krista Borgardt, regarding all marketing and sponsorship opportunities.

Luncheon sponsors receive exclusive advertising rights during the event, time at the podium, and space for table displays at the entrance.
