Our Story

For over 200 years, the Chamber has been helping businesses grow their network, knowledge influence and reach.

The foundations of what is today North East England Chamber of Commerce were created in 1815 when a group of business leaders recognised they could achieve more if they worked together for the good of the region.

This timeline charts the past 200 years of key moments and achievements in North East history and the pivotal role played by the Chamber.
