Networking - making new contacts, seeking out new customers or suppliers is part and parcel of everyday life in business. DGChamber is here to help create the opportunities for you to meet other businesses both in the region and in the neighbouring areas. The emphasis is always on informality - creating a relaxed environment to chat and make those all important contacts.
Every month we hold our popular NETWORK6 events!
In 2016 these events have been held in Dumfries, Langholm, Castle Douglas and Stranraer.
NETWORK6 events follow broadly the same format starting at 6pm and finishing by 7.30pm.
We always have an interesting speaker from the business community and there is your chance to say a few words about you and your business during the 'Magic Moment'.
Network6 events are free for DGChamber Members - just buy your own coffee and cakes!
Non members can attend for just £5.
DGChamber Network Plus
These bi-monthly weekday specialist networking events, cover specialist areas including advertising, marketing, financial planning and so much more.
These events also include a buffett lunch and are charged seperately, please check the 'EVENTS' section for more information.
Joint events are regularly held with Cumbria Chamber.
This joint event rotates between Gretna and Carlisle to make sure that there are always new faces at every meeting.
These events are often done as speed networking, giving you just a short time to make that connection.
From time to time we organise events with North East Chamber, Edinburgh and Glasgow Chambers for those businesses looking to spread their wings.
Women In Business
Each year we also arrange our very popular Women in Business event offering the opportunity to network and take a stand to raise the profile of your business further.
