The Chamber coordinates dozens of events annually and offers countless areas of support and resources for our members and our region. Here is a sampling of resources offered by the Chamber:

Visitor Centers

The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce operates visitor centers in Camden and Rockland, supporting our local business members and providing information and referrals for area visitors seeking suggestions about local shopping, dining, lodging, events, professional services, sightseeing and recreational opportunities.

The Camden Visitor Center is located in the heart of downtown Camden, at 2 Public Landing, adjacent to the inner harbor. The Rockland Visitor Center is located at 25 Park Street. In 2019, more than 20,000 walk-in visitors were greeted in Camden and Rockland by volunteers and/or staff members. Each visitor center is open over 300 days annually.

The Jewel of the Maine Coast

The Jewel is available online as an interactive ‘flip book’ as well, offering user-friendly search tools and direct links to all of the published member websites.
