Sheffield Chamber of Commerce is supporting the Retailer/Leisure/Tourism Award this year.
Priding itself on being the authoritative voice of business in the city, the Chamber drives the debate on the key issues affecting businesses in the area.
The organisation offers measurable money-saving schemes and effective profile raising. Keen for a better future for the city, the Chamber is currently supporting the development of Sheffield city centre and the idea that it should have a distinctive offer when compared to Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham.
In another venture, the Chamber is working with Sheffield City Council and the Environment Agency to develop a flood defence scheme for the Lower Don Valley.
The area is a critical economic area for Sheffield, second only to the city centre, which was devastated during the floods in 2007. The defences will protect more than 500 businesses.
