Business Support – What’s a Chamber of Commerce? | Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

Business Support – What’s a Chamber of Commerce?

Our focus is local, our influence national and our reach global.

Glasgow Chamber of Commerce sits at the heart of a unique network of businesses across the UK and around the world.

Supporting over 1,000 organisations who employ more than 100,000 staff, we facilitate valuable connections and offer our members a range of practical services and benefits.

Working together, we help firms of all sizes to achieve more. We believe it’s our relationships with others that lead us to achieve goals beyond those we could ever achieve alone. We’re the only organisation that helps British businesses to build relationships on every level, in every region and nation of the UK.

Our network exists to support and connect companies, bringing together firms to build new relationships, share best practice, foster new opportunities and provide practical support to help member businesses trade locally, nationally and globally since 1783.

Because we sit at the heart of local business community, we are uniquely placed to help businesses of every size and sector to thrive. This includes the active role we undertake on behalf of our members to improve the local business environment and communities in which they work.  We work to promote the city as a great place to work, live, play and innovate.   

We are an accredited member of British Chambers of Commerce.  The 53 Accredited Chambers which make up our UK Network are trusted champions of businesses, places, and global trade. Together, we represent tens of thousands of businesses of all shapes and sizes, which employ almost six million people across the UK.

We also have a powerful international Network with almost 80 British Chambers of Commerce and business groups located in every continent of the world and directly linked to UK-based Chambers of Commerce.

Accredited Chambers of Commerce also provide a respected voice to the business communities they represent, ensuring their priorities and concerns are heard in the corridors of power. Our opinions are regularly sought by policymakers and parliamentarians and we’ve been helping to shape the UK’s business agenda for more than 160 years.
