Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce logo

The Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce (TVCC) is a strong advocate and champion of business across the Thames Valley region. With a membership of more than 4,000 businesses and 5,000 active trade customers, we are one of the largest accredited Chambers within the UK, and the only accredited Chamber for the region. We represent business in one of Europe’s most economically prosperous and successful regions.

TVCC has launched our Business Manifesto for 2018, the first annual statement of its kind, which sets out the challenges, opportunities and changes that members believe will make the most significant and positive impact on success in the region. It commits the Chamber, a politically neutral organisation, to campaign for these changes throughout 2018.

Set out across six sections, the document outlines the actions the Chamber will focus on, with the four main priorities identified as:

  1. Provide a business solution to securing the commitment, funding and delivery of the Western Rail Link to London Heathrow (WRLtH)
  2. Maintain the momentum behind delivering the third runway at London Heathrow
  3. Use trade credentials to lobby Government to ensure it secures a business-friendly BREXIT for UK plc and safeguards the future interest of businesses exporting and investing in the region
  4. Identify, promote and showcase examples of best practice around how business and academia are investing in the region’s future workforce and fostering an entrepreneurial culture

TVCC are a key delivery partner for the work of the Department for International Trade, the National Government body responsible for promoting the UK as a leading business location and supporting companies to export into new international markets. Additionally, we work closely with academic institutions, Local Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships across the region.

Our Thames Valley team are a ‘Centre for Excellence’ in providing international trade services and global representation. We are committed to long-term relationships with our members and providing them with relevant, value-added services that help support regional, national and international business.

Selected as the favourite location for North American corporate headquarters, the region provides a familiar business culture with no language barriers. The Chamber delivers a free service of a soft landing into a networked business community that can save you time and money, and help grow your organisation in a tried-and-tested business location.

Once established, many newcomers to the region join the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce to benefit from meeting potential partners, suppliers and customers at a variety of our regular forums, networking events and conferences.

Chief Executive

We work alongside the Department for International Trade (DIT), the region’s Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), Local Authorities and professional service providers to support foreign direct investment (FDI) into the Thames Valley.

For the 2017/18 financial year, we are proud to report that the Thames Valley has retained its status as the number one region in the UK, outside of London, for attracting FDI. 191 FDI projects were recorded as entering the region, with a high proportion of these investors strongly supported by the Chamber.
