Stowmarket & District Chamber of Commerce
Welcome to Stowmarket & District Chamber of Commerce
Connecting local business in the heart of Suffolk
Based in the heart of the county, we are a well-established, friendly and pro-active business organisation, whose principal aims are to create and exploit business opportunities in the Gipping Valley area, to encourage wealth creation and employment and to contribute to the enhancement of the area as a pleasant place in which to live and do business.
Your business can benefit from membership of the Stowmarket & District Chamber through:
- Contact with a wide variety of local businesses
- Advance information on changing trading conditions
- Opportunities for new business
- Collaborative ventures into new markets
- Discounted services from Chamber members
- Exchanges of views and training opportunities
- Intelligence on markets at home and abroad
- Providing your channel to local and national Government
We run friendly monthly networking breakfasts and coffee morning drop-ins, both of which have proved very successful in generating leads and building business partnerships. The Chamber, a not-for-profit organisation, enjoys productive working relationships with Town and District Councils and is linked to Suffolk Chamber of Commerce. This ensures that we are consulted on, and obtain timely information about, future plans and issues affecting the area’s economy.
What our visitors say
My last visit to a Stowmarket Chamber breakfast meeting was over 8 months ago, so I was a little apprehensive about turning up after such a long time. I needn’t have worried as not only was I warmly welcomed by everyone but some even remembered me!
I can guarantee if you visited, your welcome would be just as warm. This group has always been welcoming and supportive with no pressures to join or to even return.
To sum them up in three words: Warm, Welcoming, Genuine!
The advice and assistance I got were worth 10 times the cost of membership and, most importantly, I can rely on it coming from people I know and trust.
The other thing I like is that it is all at my fingertips at a working breakfast every month. I don’t have to search the web and take a chance on strangers.
However, the key factor that persuaded me to join was the fact the members are all local and informed about business in my area.
This is a no-brainer – well worth it and the breakfast is not bad either!
I recommend this organisation.
They are are great bunch of people from a whole range of professions, keen to help you build your business and share their knowledge.
