The Chambers surveys businesses across the Greater Birmingham Area, which includes Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield & Tamworth, Cannock Chase and Burton-on-Trent. The Quarterly Business Report is sponsored by Birmingham City University.

Each report is launched at high profile event with a panel of experts and CEOs sharing their insights on key trends. For more information on our upcoming events visit the GBCC events calendar.
