Doing business in Nelson Tasman

Belonging to the chamber expands your network, builds relationships, grows your business and strengthes the positive voice for business in the region.

We want to make Nelson Tasman the best place to live and the best place to do business.

The Chamber makes it easier to do business.  We’re experts at creating connections, leveraging off our natural business advantages and regional strengths, and bringing national and regional expertise into the ‘room’ so local business people benefit.

With over 500 members and a changing 70 – 90 business people at each event you can build new connections and lasting business relationships.  Meet with like-minded business people and stay in touch with emerging business opportunities and on top of key business challenges.

We cut the costs of doing business with discounts, access to advice, free networking events and advertising.  We lobby local and central government to improve the business environment.

Attend free networking events, seminars and workshops – as often or as little as you like! Be supported by the strong positive voice for business and have your concerns heard by decision makers.
