Dear Chamber Member, 

As you think about your advertising plans for the upcoming year, we are delighted to continue our partnership with LeisureMedia360 to produce the 2023 edition of VBR Life, the Official Quality of Life Publication of Roanoke Regional and Salem–Roanoke County Chambers of Commerce. 

 VBR Life is used in economic development efforts and promotion of the region to visitors and new residents. Advertisers have the opportunity to select their preferred regional section – Roanoke City, Roanoke County/Vinton, Salem, as well as Botetourt and Franklin Counties.

 The publication will explore Virginia’s Blue Ridge across multiple pillars: Business, Education, Healthcare, Real Estate/Neighborhoods, Retirement, Arts & Culture/Entertainment, and Shopping/Retail.

 As a Chamber member, you have the opportunity to participate at DISCOUNTED member rates.

 Why Participate?

 Participating in the 2023 VBR Life publication will allow you to use one ad to reach 100,000+ through both B2C and B2B exposure, to both locals and newcomers, for a 12 month period, in two publications (inserted in The Roanoker Jan/Feb Insiders and Newcomers issue and stand-alone copies), through a multi-channeled distribution plan (Chamber distribution – member mailings, welcome packet requests, events), (The Roanoker – paid subscribers, paid newsstands, relocation packages, etc.)), that includes both print and digital. This will allow both your message and your ad dollars to go further.
