Business Made Social
Build connections, expand your network, learn and experience what
Peachland’s business community has to offer.
Business Made Socials are in-person networking events and are usually held in the first week of each month from September to July. Whether its wine tasting, experiencing Arts and Culture, or taking in the views of our Okanagan Lake, Business Made Socials are a favourite for new and existing Members alike.
Each Social is hosted by a different Chamber Member allowing members the opportunity to socialize, meet potential customers and mingle with their fellow peers. Enjoy a variety of delicious food and drink while meeting and connecting with Peachland’s business community.
Take this unique opportunity to showcase your business offerings, new products, services, menu, décor or share updates.
Exposure is the main benefit of hosting a Business Made Social. We as a Chamber believe in the value of local referrals. When local business owners and their employees attend the Social events, they become familiar
with what the businesses offer and they feel more vested and comfortable in making a customer referral to businesses.
Promote your business/organization by hosting a Business Made Social. Elevate your business - network with purpose. The Chamber invites business owners to visit new and existing businesses in town.
