Membership

  • We inform you

    Our members are very diverse in terms of expertise, size and sector; but they do share one common interest - business in Edinburgh. Our one city focus means we gain invaluable insight into plans, developments and key business issues in the Capital. Using this knowledge, we regularly inform our members on the local business landscape and any changes which may affect them.
  • We represent you

    As Scotland’s Capital City Chamber of Commerce, we are well respected and have strong relationships with Government, the City of Edinburgh Council and other key stakeholders. Using our networks, we influence on key business issues and lobby on policy areas important to our members.
  • We connect you

    We consider ourselves a community, not a club. We’re all about bringing people together to form relationships and encourage trade. Members can attend our 130+ B2B events per year, where they’ll connect with fellow members. We have over 1,000 member organisations - so if there is a contact you just can’t find or a business you’d like to meet - then consider it done.
  • We help you grow

    Helping our members achieve growth is incredibly important to us. We’ll help to raise your profile in Edinburgh through our marketing support; we’ll facilitate introductions and provide opportunities to meet with your target audience and we offer excellent business training programmes to help increase productivity and accelerate growth.

Some words from our members

  • Mally Graveson, Managing Director, Heehaw
    Knowing you have a team of people who support you, encourage you, help you and care about you and your business is an incredible feeling. That’s why we’ve been members for 17 years. It’s a fantastic organisation!
  • Gordon Robertson, Director of Communications, Edinburgh Airport
    The Chamber has been a long standing friend to the airport and we’re proud to be a member. It manages to put forward the case for business in the Capital with a clear understanding of the benefits that business brings to Edinburgh, as well as the responsibilities business has. From a business like ours to a small agency, the Chamber adds value – not something many can say.
  • George Lowder MBE, Chief Executive, Transport for Edinburgh
    “Our Partnership with the Chamber means that we can engage with senior leaders from across the City and from a number of sectors who can be our critical friends as we develop our strategies and plans. The Chamber also provides access to leaders and influencers from beyond the City, who provide invaluable broader insights, or represent our position in Scottish, National and International forums.”
  • Melinda Illes, Head of New Business (Scotland), DJ Alexander
    "No other organisation in Edinburgh brings together such a wide variety of community members who can engage, help, and encourage each other to play a part of the future success of Edinburgh."
