It is the voice for business and the 2018 British Chambers of Commerce Chamber of the Year.

The Chamber is renowned across the region for enhancing Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and
Leicestershire businesses and communities. Its activity is so diverse and multifaceted that thousands of businesses from across the East Midlands and beyond put trust in the Chamber to help their businesses flourish and grow – irrespective of size or sector.
Members benefit from a wide range of business support services from lobbying and campaigning, helping businesses realise their international trading ambitions, showcasing and market-making activities to workforce training and development.
The EMC is delighted to have the opportunity to support this year’s Leicester Business Festival. LBF is a great chance for the local business community to come together both in person and online.
Chair of the EMC Board of Directors Ian Morgan OBE said:
“Our corporate vision is to ‘Enhance East Midlands businesses and community,’ and the Leicester Business Festival certainly has a strong impact on businesses and communities within Leicestershire.
“It’s fantastic to see so many organisations collaborating on events this year. The last two years have been difficult for many businesses and we have seen through our ‘Business Togetherness’ campaign that when people work together they achieve amazing things.
“Chamber membership comes from all sectors and all sizes of organisations, but they share one thing in common: they are all looking for a competitive advantage. The festival has something for everyone.
“There are so many great events happening across the festival, we would advise everyone to take a closer look through the list of events and see what is right for you.”
The EMC is hosting a range of events at #LBF2021, including a round-table discussion on post-pandemic recruitment and retention, which will focus on ensuring you find the best possible people to enhance your business. Innovation at its Best will help you to understand how innovation can be the driving force behind success, and give you top tips for applying best practice to your business. All of these events and more can be booked via our website.
