BUSINESS IS DONE BETTER TOGETHER
THE CHAMBER’S REGIONAL LEGACY STRETCHES BACK TO THE 1840S
As the successor organisation to this rich heritage, the Black Country Chamber of Commerce celebrates its twentieth anniversary in March.
Whether in the 19th, 20th or now the 21st century; the Chamber has remained the leading support agency for those doing business in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall or Wolverhampton and the natural business partner to many.
We have a packed calendar of activity for our members in this milestone year and have launched Black Country 2.0, our biggest ever campaign which responds to the challenges faced by many today as they tackle COVID-19 and trade in a post Brexit marketplace.
Whether you’re a new member or have been with us for decades, you can rest assured that you are part of a long-established fellowship of committed business people working actively with us to set the future economic agenda for this great region.
BUSINESS INNOVATION AS CHAMBERS COLLABORATE TO CHAMPION REGIONAL FIRMS
Save the date and book your stand for a major West Midlands business expo.
Supported by Black Country Chamber of Commerce’s Headline Sponsor Paycare.
Chambers of Commerce across the Midlands region have joined forces to raise the profile of thousands of businesses in a week-long celebration.
Supporting businesses throughout Covid-19 has been the top priority for every Chamber of Commerce and the West Midlands Virtual Business Expo, which kicks off in March, will provide the ultimate event for firms to network, make new connections and grow, as the business world looks to future recovery in post-pandemic times.
The ‘West Midlands Business Expo’- #WMExpo #WMBizWeek - will see the collective efforts of Chambers across the Black Country, Coventry & Warwickshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire, with businesses given the opportunity to exhibit at the Virtual Expo, alongside a packed agenda of engaging business focused events.
Taking place between 22nd and 26th March, the Expo comes at the end of a third national lockdown for the country in which many firms have continued to struggle to stay afloat, despite a range of financial support measures put in place by the UK government.
Over five days, the Virtual Expo is expected to attract thousands of visitors from across the region with exhibitors manning their virtual stands to showcase their products and services, whilst being able to respond online to new customer enquiries.
A range of informative business events will also be delivered during the week with each day having a local flavour, demonstrating the unique strengths & opportunities across the five West Midlands areas.
Chambers of Commerce across the UK have been at the forefront of supporting & advising firms through the COVID-19 pandemic and helping them to understand the latest developments, as well as acting as ‘the voice’ of their members to local, regional and national government.
Corin Crane, Black Country Chamber CEO said, “As a region, the Midlands has a wealth of fantastic businesses that are at the forefront of their respective industries and sectors and there has never been a more important time for Chambers and our businesses to connect and collaborate.
“We are at the very heart of our local business communities, and it is time to start shouting about the innovative work that is taking place, working together to promote our region, giving vital business support and a platform to shine, is more important than ever now as businesses face the biggest economic downturn this country has ever experienced.
Bookings for the event are now being taken.
