Summer Soiree White Fashion Event


Summer Soiree Overview

On August 31st, 2023, the Ventura Yacht Club will play host to the Summer Soiree - White Fashion Event, a premier networking rendezvous orchestrated by CCMERA. Positioned as the "can't miss" gathering of the season, it is where the Central Coast's business and community leaders from San Luis Obispo to Ventura County will converge.

Our focus is straightforward: offer an unmatched platform for business networking and collaboration amidst the maritime ambiance of the historic Ventura Yacht Club.

Understanding the value of face-to-face interactions in today's digital age, our event is tailored to create revenue opportunities, forge partnerships, and drive mutual growth.

Our marketing approach, underpinned by a mix of digital and mail campaigns, specifically targets the region's influential leaders and decision-makers. It's not just about promoting an event but underscoring the business potential that awaits attendees. With teasers, spotlight features, and consistent updates, we aim to build anticipation and ensure maximum participation.

Sponsors play a pivotal role in this journey. With tiers set at Platinum ($750) and Gold ($500), we offer a platform for businesses to elevate their visibility, align with like- minded peers, and tap into potential business opportunities. Each sponsorship package has been designed with clear business outcomes in mind.

While the Summer Soiree promises a memorable evening of networking and collaboration, our commitment goes beyond a single event. We will seek feedback post- event to ensure we not only meet but exceed expectations, using insights to inform and improve future endeavors.

In essence, the Summer Soiree stands as a testament to CCMERAs dedication to fostering business growth and community synergy on the Central Coast. We invite you to mark your calendars, join us, and leverage this unique opportunity.
