Marketing your business

And each step of the way Greater Grays Harbor promotes our members. We give hundreds of referrals and recommendations each month, and our “mini web pages” we offer free to members are some of the most popular on our site. Every year we host EXPO Grays Harbor, the area’s only trade show specifically for local businesses and customers, and the Bite of Grays Harbor, which attract thousands of people. There are also multiple opportunities for members to purchase advertising or sponsor Chamber events and activities.
