BELONG.   CONNECT.    PROSPER.

Bournemouth is a major southern town bursting with business opportunities. The Chamber creates a key link to these opportunities. By joining the Chamber, you join a community of like-minded businesses and professionals all based in the same geographical area as you, so you can build valuable and rewarding relationships and connections.

Chamber members aim to help and support one another while continuously learning and progressing. The Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce serves: Boscombe, Kinson, Pokesdown, Southbourne, Wallisdown, Westbourne, Winton, and more.

By becoming more involved in your local community you help to build confidence in your business and to those you work with and serve daily. We welcome businesses of all sizes including sole proprietors, offering various levels of membership to suit you, your business and your budget.

What We Do

Have you ever considered the benefits of a local Chamber such as Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce (BCTC) being a representative for your business? Did you know that our aim is to help local businesses to grow and thrive?

Being a longstanding organisation with over 100 years of experience, BCTC have very close connections with BCP Council and many other key stakeholder organisations in the conurbation.  Groups like BH Area Hospitality Association (BAHA), the Town Centre and Coastal Business Improvement District (BID’s) as well as Yellow Buses, JPMorgan and Castlepoint, to name but a few.

Additionally, as a membership organisation voluntarily run by a group of local business owners, we pride ourselves in providing networking and presentation platforms for you, as well as the very latest business information, training & development. We are also your voice/one voice, ensuring that together we are stronger.  By joining us, you get the opportunity to connect with other local business owners to enhance the visibility of your company/business and brand. Access to these opportunities through all of our programmes and events are only a few steps away.

Application for membership is open to all businesses trading in or into Bournemouth.  Our members range from large to small businesses and individuals, who want to improve their own businesses, as well as taking an interest in improving the commercial and general amenities of the town and surrounding area.
