Our Chamber story

The challenge for many businesses is to make enough of the right connections in order to grow. 

The vision of Business West Chambers of Commerce is to facilitate business growth through connecting people. The old adage, ‘it’s not what you know but who you know’ is never truer.  So identifying members’ needs and connecting them to others who might be able to fulfill that need is what we do. This includes networking opportunities, ideas on how to raise your profile and business advice. 

With a ready-made community of people from businesses of all sizes and sectors,  you can easily connect with fellow business people through your local Chamber of Commerce in Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Our regular breakfast networking events allow you to make new connections and pitch for business in an informal, professional and friendly space. It’s even been known for people to walk out of the room with a contract in their hand!

As well as ensuring you are well connected we also support businesses with business advice and other professional services. Our Professional Advice Service is highly regarded by our members, providing 20 minutes of legal advice free of charge as often as is needed.

Chambers of Commerce are renowned for helping businesses to find new markets and export their products and services around the world.  But even if you have the best product at the best price, if your export documents aren’t in order it may end up stuck at a dock on the wrong side of the world. If your business has a need to export then we can help. Our export team will ensure you have the right documents filled in correctly, or alternatively we can complete and submit all the paperwork for you.
