The Ybor Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to advancing the district’s economic vitality and improving the quality of life, which makes Ybor an attractive place to live, work and do business. These efforts are made possible, in part, by the support of the local business community. Ybor’s Chamber offers its members various promotional opportunities and a friendly environment for doing business. Most Memberships can include:
Publicity: Monthly electronic newsletter, La Setima, is a great way for members to get the word out about their events and activities through articles and the calendar of events. Also, the monthly Tampa Tribune advertising co-op, published the fourth week of the month, highlights “what’s happening” in Ybor City, as well as offering inexpensive advertising opportunities for chamber members.
Networking: Monthly chamber luncheons (with informative speakers), PM networking events, and a once a year Business Expo.
