Welcome to the Solihull Chamber of Commerce.

Solihull is one of the strongest performing economies in the centre of the UK and offers a world class, connected location to live, work and invest in.

It is ranked among the top 10 UK locations for business and continues to be a thriving hub - rich in skills, talent, opportunity, commercial potential, and ambitious net zero aims. Our local economy is strong and will only be enhanced by developments such as the Arden Cross Interchange and the continued success of our leading businesses, including the NEC, Birmingham Airport and Gymshark.

HS2 will also establish us as a major gateway to the region and, with greater connectivity to the capital, will open the door for Solihull’s businesses to showcase their offering.

Our increasing employment rate signifies growth across all groups and our borough continues to boast a higher job density than the regional average.

Thanks to the various educational institutions across Solihull our future workforce is flourishing, and our young people are working to maintain our ranking as the highest educated area within the West Midlands Combined Authority as well as excelling in the provision of apprenticeships accounting for 8.5 per cent of the West Midlands total.

Despite the challenges created by the pandemic Solihull have maintained a positive economic output, seeing the start of 960 new businesses and with 43 per cent of SMEs started in 2015 surviving into the pandemic.

The Chamber is the leading organisation for business support in Solihull. We exist to connect, support and grow organisations from any sector across the region. Our members are from a vast range of sectors, making our network uniquely diverse and strong. Membership is at the heart of everything we do and is the perfect platform to work with the Solihull Chamber of Commerce to promote and market your business

As part of our membership offering, we run a wide variety of professional, yet informal, business events. They include social and professional networking events, business exhibitions, speaker breakfasts and industry forums.

Our membership packages also include a range of other benefits such as discount on Chamber services, access to free business support and promotion of your organisation through media opportunities.

We offer a platform for businesses to connect and make new contacts, while having the opportunity to learn from business experts and link with like-minded people and organisations.
