We are very lucky in Laois to have an active Laois Chamber of Commerce. Many of our tourism businesses benefit from membership. Laois Tourism and Laois Chamber both work hard in the ongoing development of local businesses ensuring some great tourism experiences for visitors and locals alike.
Laois Chamber of commerce was launched in Sept 2019 and is managed and operated by a board of directors and a full time CEO. It is a representation membership organisation for businesses, providing members the opportunity to connect, promote, engage and influence. The goal is to make Laois the centre of Ireland for business.
The Chamber delivers many benefits to it members and the business community in the county including:
Hosting networking events across the county including seminars, webinars, conferences, business breakfasts, business awards, jobs fair and keynote speaker events.
Offering advice and mentoring, informing members on updates on supports, grants and opportunities.
