Every year the chamber publishes our Annual Newcomer’s Guide and Business Directory that highlights the pioneering businesses, fun festivals, and beautiful sights and scenery in our community. 

This year, we’re excited to expand on that even further. Shreveport-Bossier’s expansive business offerings, interesting places to go and things to do are all wrapped up in undeniable southern charm. We want to share what’s tried and true along with what’s best and new, so residents, visitors and those looking to make our region their home can see what makes Shreveport-Bossier great.

 With that in mind, we’re proud to announce our Newcomer’s Guide & Business Directory will now be published under the name Greater Shreveport, a publication of the Greater Shreveport Chamber.
