Business Membership

The Business Memberships are organized into packages that also outline the co-marketing opportunities within our website and social media reach. We use our email blasts to drive exposure for the commercial strip, and we provide merchants opportunities to be vendors at EVA events. Furthermore, the EVA has awarded several merchant members grant reimbursements through the “Better Buffalo Fund” for eligible facade and building improvements. Click on the Business Membership page to see a full breakdown of benefits.

Note: Non-Profit Organizations should pick the package that best matches their goals for marketing and exposure alongside the EVA.
