Our Events

The Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce runs a busy calendar of more than 70 events every year which are attended by over six thousand people.

Visit our Events Diary to see what’s happening next.

Networking


Network lunches

Network lunches are held every month, alternately at North and South Bank venues. These informal and social lunches are held at the best venues in the region, which provide a perfect setting for meeting business people. These occasions are very popular, with over a hundred members attending each one. Many members have won large amounts of business as a direct result of meeting new clients at these events.

Speed networking

Our speed networking events introduce you to around 30 business people in a short period of time – and it’s fun! The delegates are split into two separate teams, with each team meeting all the members of the other team, in ‘meetings’ of two minutes. Sessions usually take place before our network lunches.


Chamber Expo

The Chamber hosts and organises the biggest business event in the region every June, held at The Costello Stadium.  Showcase products and services to an audience of 1000 businesses, with 89 Stands and first-class networking opportunities.


Social and corporate hospitality

The following events are corporate hospitality occasions, with Chamber Member organisations inviting their clients, colleagues, friends and partners. They also offer a great environment in which to network.


Chamber Annual Dinner

The Chamber’s Annual Dinner has been one of the most prestigious occasions on the business calendar for over a century. Held at a first class local venue, the Annual Dinner is attended every year by around 400 people, including VIPs from across the region. It is a highly enjoyable evening which features a mix of speeches and entertainment. Every year, a high-ranking representative of the world of politics or business is the headline speaker, followed by a comedian and/or musical entertainer. Members often book tables of 10, but can attend in any numbers.


Chamber Race Days

The Chamber has been organising Race Days since 1997, to provide Members with a first class day out in an exciting atmosphere. Held in the superb setting of Beverley Racecourse and at the historic St Leger Festival at Doncaster, these superb events are a great way to entertain guests, while enjoying excellent food and drink. The events are a great day out – and some members even finish the day with more money then they started with!
