Birmingham is booming. The city has the largest concentration of businesses outside of London and has welcomed a number of major investors including HSBC and Deutsche Bank, who have relocated their head offices to Birmingham. It is also the youngest city in Europe with under-25s accounting for nearly 40 per cent of its population.
And let’s not forget the arrival of HS2, which will place Birmingham at the heart of its network.
All of these factors make it a great time to be part of Birmingham Chamber, the largest division of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce group. Headquartered in Edgbaston, Birmingham Chamber accounts for more than half of GBCC’s overall membership. Birmingham Chamber is open to all businesses and sectors based in the city.

'Beeline joined the chamber in October 2016 as a standard member, in the initial 12 months of our membership we saw an increase of not only sales but also an increase in awareness of who Beeline are and what we can offer to West Midlands businesses. We were delighted with not only the assistance provided by the Chamber in the initial joining process but the ongoing support of our dedicated account manager, who took the challenge of growing Beeline almost as personally as we did!! After the initial 12 Months we upgraded our membership to the 1813 level, based on the service provided to us, and we are delighted to say that it has been one of the best decisions we have ever made for our business and we look forward to many more years of working alongside the team at the Chamber'
‘We are proud to be members of the Birmingham Chambers of Commerce. Our membership provides the opportunity to promote our activities and services to other members and the events we attend provide networking opportunities. When we attend a Chamber event, we know we’ll meet likeminded businesses who are all keen to do business together and support each other. The Chamber offers support in so many different areas, we know we’re never alone if the support and help is needed.’
‘When we expanded into Birmingham in 2017 we were looking at ways of boosting our profile and forging new business relationships who could benefit from our approach to offering Carbon Neutral waste management services. The Chamber’s events, online activity and most recently annual dinner has given us that platform and we would encourage other businesses to utilise all the Chamber has on offer to further aid their own business growth.’
Last year, over 10,000 delegates attended a Chamber event in Greater Birmingham with events ranging from speaker breakfast events to business growth seminars and speed networking to large business awards dinners which attracted key business leaders and decision makers from across the region.
