Type: Non-Profit Organization / Chamber of Commerce

Location: Herndon & Chantilly, Virginia (VA)

Organization Background and Goals:

The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce, situated in the Dulles and Route 28 Corridors, serves businesses in western Fairfax and eastern Loudoun Counties. The Chamber serves one of the nation’s foremost high-tech corridors and acts as a resource, public affairs advocate and community partner for 1,000 businesses and affiliates. Their mission is to promote and facilitate the success of businesses and the communities they serve through networking, workforce development, outreach, and advocacy. Their goals for the site were:

  • Significantly upgrade and enhance their website both in terms of look and feel as well as functionality;
  • Provide online resources to your target audience to promote commerce in the Dulles Regional area;
  • Provide a link for members to access their IRM membership contact information;
  • Allow online event registration and payment;
  • Enable staff to update and add content, events, banner advertisements, and more.

Katalyst Role:

We worked with our strategic design partner, D Banzon Design, to outline the chamber’s requirements and goals for the website. D Banzon Design then developed the overall website layout, which we implemented for the Joomla Content Management System. We developed a custom events registration component to allow the chamber to accept online registrations and payment for the events. We also implemented a banner advertising feature to allow the chamber to offer online advertising on their website as a revenue generator.

Our Work

“My expertise is in running my company, not in website design and development. After comparing and contrasting several website development groups, the clear choice became Katalyst Solutions based on overall value, customer service/support, training and the quality of prior websites they developed. I continue to receive support after a successful launch of our website and I enjoy hearing clients compliment our site.”
