Chambers Ireland 003

This year’s Chamber Week kicks off country wide today. It is a week dedicated to showing businesses around the country what their local Chamber has to offer, in terms of doing better business locally, regionally and nationally and giving local businesses the tools to network, to secure new customers, to drive their local economic and social development and providing a strong lobbying voice to Government.

Running until Friday 5th October, Chambers around the country will be hosting events such as seminars, site visits and expos showing how they are Supporting Your Business. Chamber membership is invaluable to businesses in a number of ways as evidenced by the results of a recent survey. In the survey of Chamber members, 78% of respondents felt that being a member of a Chamber is important for their business while 73% have made vital new contacts at Chamber events.

Ian Talbot, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive said, “Being involved with a local Chamber can make a real difference to a business. As part of the Chamber Network, members have opportunities to network, make new contacts, become part of a local and national lobbying voice and get vital support when needed. According to a recent survey, 83% of respondents felt they had more opportunities to network as a Chamber member and this week is the perfect time to sample some of these great events.”
