Charlottetown, PE (PRWEB) December 4, 2009
The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with ScreenScape, a community-based digital signage service, to facilitate the promotion of events, and to increase the visibility of chamber members.
Kathy Hambly, Executive Director of The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce commented, "We began using ScreenScape as a communication tool at our events to inform our members of upcoming seminars, networking opportunities, and Chamber news. ScreenScape enables us to use technology to reach our members in new ways. ScreenScape is now part of our communication strategy as another way to thank our sponsors, and keep our members informed of the many activities we have planned. We’ve received great feedback regarding the use of the screen display during our events, and we’re now reaching out to potential partners to have our content viewable on their displays in venues throughout our community."
ScreenScape is an online service that combines professional display authoring tools with the content sharing principles and techniques of social media. The company was founded in Charlottetown in 2007 and now has a presence in more than a dozen countries worldwide.
"There’s a fantastic opportunity for marketing within the ScreenScape Community. Local members of ScreenScape can help us by publishing our content on displays throughout the city. The ability to collaborate and share information with local business is a real benefit." continued Hambly.
"The business community has always had a strong connection with local Chambers.” said ScreenScape Founder and Chief Product Officer, Mark Hemphill. “An important function of a Chamber is the banding together of its members to cross promote products and services. What a great fit for ScreenScape. Our service offers a unique way to do just that to enhance economic development at a local level. This project is a great case study for other Chambers across the country.”
