BCTC - Building A Better Business Community

How much do you spend on marketing your business to attract new customers?

From just £75 for 12 months membership we can provide you with the links you need to promote your business and meet potential customers. Just one new customer for your business will more than recoup the cost of membership.

Membership of the Chamber has many benefits, taking advantage of these for your business and being actively involved in communicating with other members and businesses in Bournemouth can deliver new customers.
