Welcome to our beautiful community – “The City on the Gulf.”
The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce has been promoting business growth and success while cultivating a vibrant and engaged community for over 90 years. Our Chamber serves as our area’s visitor center partnering with Visit Sarasota complete with area maps, information about local attractions and events, and a knowledgeable staff. The Chamber also prides itself on advocating for the area’s business community. Our Chamber family includes over 1,000-member businesses with their employees. Our goal is to connect you with people who will help you grow your business and expand your network.
Our goals for 2020 are Vision, Focus, and Future. We have incorporated several new events and programs last year including our Entrepreneurial Exchange Series to give our members The Competitive Edge. Truly something for everyone. Our goal in 2020 is to focus on these events and cultivate them into refined events that we will have long into the future. We also have a huge heart for the youth and young professionals of our community and we want the Venice Chamber to be a place for them to develop into our future leaders.
So, whether you are looking for a vacation destination, a place to relocate and raise a family, retired and looking to relax, start a new business, or grow and enhance an existing business, I invite you to explore our amazing community. I also encourage you to get involved. There are many great events at the Chamber and in our community. The Venice Area Chamber is a great place to grow your business, meet new friends and have fun doing it.
If there’s anything we can do to help you, please let us know. We’re glad you’re here and hope to meet you at one of our many wonderful events.
