The Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau is honored and proud to be an integral part of the growing Northern Santa Barbara County. We have long known what can be accomplished with some ingenuity, a lot of hard work and an environment that welcomes your efforts.

The Santa Maria Valley offers you an opportunity to build your future in a beautiful place, with a quality of life second to none. While agriculture remains our leading industry, many businesses have found a good fit with this area’s heritage and quality of life.



Our business base has become very diversified over the last several decades. Today companies of all types, from manufacturing to financial services to telecommunications to defense-related firms successfully conduct their business in our region.

In addition, opportunities for rest and relaxation, a rich variety of leisure activities and cultural attractions are part of what our dynamic community offers. Whether you arrive here for business or pleasure you may be assured a warm welcome awaits you. Please contact me personally if I may be of assistance in any way.
