Members announce they are taking their award winning destination marketing event online, to connect consumers to the Long Beach Island Region Experts on Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 10am.

SHIP BOTTOM, N.J. - April 2, 2020 -, The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce has been promoting the innovation of its business community throughout the country and continues to champion the importance of collaboration and adaptation. " COVID-19 has brought us into uncharted territory in every aspect of life, the response is to evolve to the next level of service and bring the Long Beach Island Region businesses to the guests that could not come here" stated Lori Pepenella, CDME Chief Executive Officer.

The chamber has spent the past several months planning their five year strategic plan, that includes consumer connection and enhanced access to local businesses. The 2020 Wedding Road Show & Party Planning event will not only showcase members who registered to be part of the event, but help people get more familiar with the area.  "Typically the day of the Wedding Road Show brings hundreds of out of state attendees as well as a wide range of residents from New Jersey together".  We will be highlighting the beauty of the area with dynamic video from the Just Beneath The Surface Series, pro tips, photos, online tools from venues and vendors, and prize giveaways for participants that join in. In order to win the grand prize of the show which is an exclusive package from the Seashell Resort and Beach Club in Beach Haven that includes an overnight stay, dinner for two on a private beach with a curated menu and wine pairing, an attendee will need to log into the event at the start time and stay online until the show is over. Other prize opportunities will be offered throughout the day. Cyber sponsors have joined in to support and spread the word about this unique spin on a one of a kind event. NJWedding.com, Elegant Bridal Production, Celebration Guide, Press Communications, Visit NJ as well as the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders are looking to bring thoughts for a brighter future to everyone who takes part.
