Your Guide to the Business Alliance

July 20th, 2017 by Downtown District

The Loveland Downtown Partnership and Downtown Loveland Association have merged their efforts, forming the LDP Business Alliance, a business advocacy and advisory group under the Loveland Downtown Partnership. This effort strives to eliminate duplicate efforts, enable better service to the diverse business constituencies within Loveland’s downtown and join organizations with very similar visions and missions to enhance the success of businesses and residents in the Downtown District with one-stop convenience.

The Business Alliance is made up of Downtown Loveland business owners who play an active role in the continued development of the Downtown District, sharing their needs and vision for the area, and are willing to invest their support in making Downtown Loveland a destination to live, work and play.

Focused on collaborative marketing, members of the Business Alliance are able to enjoy certain benefits that vary by level. Each of these benefits is designed to give local businesses, and the area as a whole, greater visibility and accessibility to residents and visitors. All members have the ability to submit their news and events to the Loveland Downtown Partnership page for increased viewership. Benefits include:

  • Online directory listing
  • Membership decal
  • Downtown advocacy
  • Opportunities for collaborative advertising and marketing
  • Business listing in downtown guide
  • Networking spotlight opportunities
  • Website recognition
  • 1-time use of membership email list (with a reach of 250+)
  • Discount sponsorship opportunities
  • Social media shout out (7,600+ likes on Facebook)

Alliance members are encouraged to support activities and events that draw people downtown to shop, dine and stroll as well as showcase Loveland’s vibrant community. In addition to more traditional event sponsorships, members can now sponsor “local color” – chalk art, flower pots and more that make downtown Loveland unique.

“It’s exciting how invigorated our downtown is becoming. It is a great place, on the cusp of becoming a big deal!”
- Sara Turner, Owner of Studio Vino and Business Alliance leadership team member
