The Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce is proud to support, promote and protect its members and the local business community by hosting an array of Chamber Events.
The Chamber encourages business-to-business interaction with our Business After Hours and Speed Networking events. The Chamber also hosts an annual Golf Classic, encouraging business development and networking whilst enjoying our picturesque golf courses.
Our annual Legislative Luncheon effectively helps us to connect the business community in Cayman with the local Government. Hosted at one of our superb hotels or first-class restaurants, the Luncheon serves as an informal yet productive way to discuss policy and procedure which may affect the Cayman Islands business community.
And, once a year, the Chamber of Commerce likes to celebrate our achievements and successes with an Annual General Meeting. We also take this opportunity to praise our active, champion members who have helped make the year as tremendous as it has been.
