Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce was set up more than 200 years ago to serve, promote, help and be the voice of business across the county of Devon.

We do lots for businesses like yours and work closely with Exeter Chamber and the other chambers of commerce in the county.

Our mantra is to help you Connect, Grow and Succeed.

If you are a small business, you do not have to do it alone. We can help you in good times and bad, connecting you to the people who will support you.

If you are a medium-sized business, we have the tools to help you scale and start working on the business, rather than in it.

And if you are a large enterprise, we can help you take off – trade around the world, form influential relationships and lobby for changes that make a real difference to our region’s infrastructure and business climate.

We help you form important connections through our excellent events programme and networking opportunities – introducing you to the people and businesses that will help you grow.

No matter what size you are, we can help you be part of something bigger.
