Making the Most of Membership

Networking Events

I have met some inspirational members and made some good friends. I have gained good contacts and customers

Alison Thompson – The Dental Barn

  • The largest town Chamber in the South East
  • Regular events throughout the year
  • Showcase your business to other members

But I’ve never networked before…

We run quarterly events just for new members who have joined recently as an introduction to the Chamber and how we can make it work for you. You are not alone.


I don’t have time to network…

Our events happen throughout the day – be it morning, noon or night! So there’s always something happening.

Exposure for your Business

There are people at the Chamber to help push my business forward. It’s a little bit like having your own marketing department

Simon Bulteel – Cooden Tax Consulting

  • Access to over 80,000 readers through FREE articles in Platinum Magazine, Sussex Business Times and Business Matters
  • An entry in the Chamber directory both online and in our printed diary
  • 25% off town centre promotions with a weekly footfall of 191,000

But I’ve never written a press article before and I don’t have time…


All we need is a hi-resolution photo of your news story or event. We can write the rest of the press article for you, free of charge, and get it in the magazines and regular e-shots.

Access to Influence


Are you looking to expand your business? Is there something affecting your growth? Do you know who to talk to?  We do.


We hold regular meetings with local authorities and regional government.


We continue to lobby central Government on things that matter to businesses, including the A27, regeneration of the area and Gatwick Airport.


We also hold meetings with the Bank of England, reporting back on growth and the barriers to businesses in the area.
