Chamber of commerce


Membership has climbed steadily throughout the year and is now at an all time high. Our monthly Business Breakfasts held at The Devoncourt Resort Hotel with interesting Speakers have proved enormously popular. So too have the Monthly Drinks Networking Events held at various venues in central Exmouth on the third Thursday of the month from 5.00pm onwards.

The Chamber organise other events throughout the year with the ever popular trip to the House of Commons coming up next week on the 10th December which is the eve of the historic Brexit vote by MPs. Should be a febrile atmosphere pulsating through those hallowed corridors!

The Chamber’s hilarious Christmas Dinner and Quiz Party together with Secret Santa will take place on Thursday 20th December at 7.00pm at The Devoncourt. A must for those with a certain sense of humour?!

The Chamber will be mounting the third Exmouth Business Fair on Thursday 28th February 2019 to be held at The Devoncourt Resort Hotel. Watch out for details on the Chamber website.

The ever popular and highly successful Exmouth Chamber/ Exmouth Journal Business Awards 2019 will be launched at a breakfast presentation to be held at the new venue of Woodbury Golf and Country Club on the 19th February.

Nominations will close on the 19th April with ticket sales commencing on the 25th April and closing on the 10th May.

The Award Ceremony will take place on Friday 17th May at Woodbury Park. If you’re a business then do yourself a favour and nominate yourself for this Event and enjoy all the extensive free publicity you get for a substantial part of the year both before and after the event.
