Abingdon on Thames Chamber of Commerce
Our aim is to be the voice of the local business community in the promotion of the businesses, the town and economy of Abingdon-on-Thames and to act as a representative of businesses within Abingdon and surrounding area.
We hold regular social and networking meetings on the 1st Tuesday of every month to enable members and their guests to liaise with other chamber members in the convivial atmosphere of a local public house,hotel or restaurant. We also hold monthly business meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of each month to discuss any relative matters that arise. These commence at 6:30pm and usually finish no later than 8:00pm. All of our members are welcome to attend.
We also host a number of events within the town, these include, B2B networking / promotional events, hustings and training sessions to use social media. We have recently taken over the running of the Local Excellence Markets which attract hundreds of people to our town centre.
The Chamber of Commerce is involved in the Abingdon BID initiative. We are now fully responsible for organising the annual Christmas Extravaganza. This is an all day festival which kicks off Christmas shopping in Abingdon.
The Chamber of Commerce promotes activity in the town centre by hiring out gazebos at reasonable rates to community groups and local businesses - for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
As well as events, we have representatives on a number of committees; these currently include the Vale moorings action group, the community forum, the neighbourhood action group and many more.
Membership is open to any business within Abingdon or surrounding area. We are run by a committee of members, which is elected by our members at our AGM each February.
