As the Greater Irvine Chamber celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, the organization’s professional staff and Board of Directors continues its work to support the Irvine Master Plan and to advance the economic vitality of greater Irvine.
Through its numerous programs and events, the Greater Irvine Chamber convenes thousands of business leaders every year to build long-lasting professional relationships.
The Greater Irvine Chamber has partnered with Irvine’s highly-ranked schools and 15 colleges and universities on programs that help ensure a sustainable talent pipeline for Irvine companies. Partnerships with accelerators such as UCI Applied Innovation, OCTANe, and Coded in OC, help young companies to launch and create a thriving startup ecosystem.
The Chamber’s partnership with Irvine’s city government is stronger than ever, allowing us to work together to attract global and domestic companies looking to expand to this region. From its inception, the Chamber has supported progress in Irvine, working in collaboration with community and business partners, helping Irvine to become the global city that it is today. A city built on a visionary Master Plan, Irvine is now home to some of the most successful businesses, highly-regarded educational institutions, abundant recreation and open spaces, and most vibrant residential communities in the world.
The Greater Irvine Chamber’s destination marketing division, Destination Irvine, attracts millions of dollars in economic impact to the city and its 21 Irvine hotel partners annually.
Continued progress is the key to Irvine’s sustained economic vitality and unparalleled lifestyle that we all have the opportunity to experience. It’s people working together that ensure Irvine’s greatness for generations to come. As the Greater Irvine Chamber celebrates its 40th Anniversary in 2019, I invite you to be part of our efforts to help keep Irvine one of the world’s greatest cities.
