HOW WE HELP YOU DO BUSINESS BETTER

We do it at your pace, introducing you to the people you need to meet. Don’t waste your time at meaningless networking events stuffed with sales pitches – let us guide you to making the right connections.

'We are thrilled to partner with the Devon Chamber of Commerce to help us connect and create meaningful conversations with our local business community. Their fantastic range of events offer brilliant insights and introductions for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and will be happy to speak with anyone considering a membership.'

Your business deserves bespoke support for growth – high quality events, coaching, legal & HR support and a wealth of connections to aid your journey.

We also provide dedicated advice and qualified support from our International Trade team to help you reach new markets and will promote your business through our extensive communication channels.

We are about People, Planet and Purpose

Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce is built around three core principles that support our vision for a truly green Blue & Green Economy that we can all thrive in.

People is about inclusive recruitment, employment, skills, education and training.

Planet is about achieving Net Zero, working towards Sustainable Development Goals, clean growth and transport.

Purpose is about doing business that has positive social impact, creates employment and sustainable growth.

Where these intersect is ‘good business’, which is proven to be productive and profitable, and the Chamber intends to be at the heart of that
