Region: West Midlands

The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) is a membership-led, business support organisation that has acted as the voice of local businesses since 1813. Today we continue to connect, support and grow local businesses. With over 3,000 member companies covering six geographic areas across the region (Birmingham, Burton, Chase, Lichfield, Tamworth, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield) and a membership base which ranges from young professionals to SMEs and large, high profile organisations such as Mondelez International, Jaguar Land Rover and The NEC Group, the GBCC is the third largest Chamber in the country and one of the most influential of its kind.
 
In working closely with bodies such as the Midlands Engine, HS2, Midlands Connect, the WMCA and anchor institutions such as Birmingham Airport, the GBCC plays a prominent role in shaping the local transport and infrastructure agenda. At this event, you will hear from Paul Faulkner, CEO of the GBCC and Raj Kandola, Senior Policy Advisor on how the Chamber promotes local economic growth in the region, influences key regional and national stakeholders around transport policy and helps shape the wider narrative around infrastructure development.
