Chamber Business Awards

The BCC has taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Chamber Business Awards, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We have also decided withdraw the Thames Valley Chamber Business Awards from the Chambers 2020 events programme.  The Chamber Awards is an inspiring highlight in the Thames Valley’s annual event calendar, and we promise to bring this back in 2021 with our valued sponsors, and local businesses. We are proud to be part of remarkable stories each day to keep businesses in the region moving and thank you all for your continued support.

Events

In addition to your local Chamber events running throughout the year, the BCC have a calendar of events. Find out more here.

Shaping and framing the development of policy for the Accredited Chamber Network, the BCC Policy Working Groups have between 12-14 members who provide expertise in their field and an understanding of the impact of policy in their Chamber’s region. Find out more here.

Coronavirus Business Impact Tracker

The tracker serves as a barometer of business’ response to the government’s measures and changes to business’ working practices over the next few months. It also tracks how quickly new government interventions, introduced to deal with the real-world impact of this crisis, are getting to the businesses at the front line.
