‘Abzorbed Events started its journey as an outsider to the Chambers but soon found its feet as a trusted supplier, we were made to feel at home with regular soft touch from Account Managers and participation in networking events. Joining the Chambers especially the Asian Chambers of Commerce has allowed us to slowly grow our brand outside of Staffordshire where our HQ is and make some friends also, we look forward to seeing what comes next in the coming years.’
‘Amplify has greatly benefitted from being an 1813 Chamber member, as we have been able to promote our brand to a huge, diverse network of regional businesses. The networking opportunities and events are fantastic, as is the very valuable support provided by Gary Birch, who ensures we get the most out of our membership, gives great advice and has facilitated successful introductions to key contacts. I’d be most happy to recommend membership to anyone looking to grow their business.’
