Marketing Support for Rental Clients

Thank you for choosing the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts as your event venue. Please be advised that marketing for rental events is the sole responsibility of the presenter. If your event is open to the public, we are able to help assist in its promotion in the following ways:

Monthly E-Newsletter

A text listing of your event, and a link to your event page on our website, will appear in one Chan Centre monthly e-newsletter, sent to approximately 30,000 opted-in recipients at the beginning of the month in which the event occurs. You can sign up to receive the e-news here. Due to the high volume of events at the Chan Centre, we are unable to send event-specific emails outside of our monthly e-newsletter.

Contests, ticket presales, and other special promotions can be considered for inclusion in our monthly e-newsletter on a case-by-case basis, depending on availability of space and with sufficient advanced notice. This information can also be shared on our social media channels (see below).


Digital Signage

A digital slide featuring your event’s date, title, presentation info and image will be produced by the Chan Centre and featured on our digital signage system (lobby screens – active when events are occurring) beginning 4 weeks prior to your event. Your event will also be listed on the Chan Centre’s exterior marquee sign.

Social Media

Connect with the Chan Centre on Facebook (Chan.Centre.UBC), Twitter (@ChanCentre) and Instagram (@ChanCentreUBC)! We will be happy to retweet and share your upcoming event information when our content calendar allows.**


Please note that inclusion in Chan Centre marketing channels is not guaranteed, and may be subject to availability. 


*Asset Quality

The Chan Centre’s ability to execute the above-listed marketing support strongly relies on the quality of the material provided. High-resolution images, brief and engaging videos, and succinct marketing copy are always preferred and easier for us to engage with.

**Platform/channel availability

Marketing support is dependent on the current marketing needs of the Chan Centre’s own presentations and programming. Certain months of the year are much busier with a higher number of resident and rental events, making availability more challenging.



Thank you for choosing the Chan Centre for your event!
