Membership Benefits

Design District members make up a vibrant lead referral network that works closely with each other both in proximity and in business. The group operates as a cooperative, working together to create a memorable experience for both individual and shared customers.

The Design District meets on the second Wednesday of every month to share leads, discuss opportunities, and brainstorm ideas. Meetings rotate amongst the members, giving each business the opportunity to showcase their facilities, products, services, and activities. The association also benefits from a strong relationship with the Town of West Hartford’s Economic Development Department, the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, and the West Hartford Police Department. 

Design District members also enjoy the benefit of shared brand awareness and lead generation marketing and advertising campaigns, which take place multiple times per year and include:


TV Advertising, Street Signage, Printed Marketing Materials



Website, Online Advertising, Email Newsletters


Content Coordination, Influencer Relations, Private Groups, Event Promotion


Feature Stories, Expert Interviews, Local Blogs


Community Events, Business Workshops
