Your next big client could be at one of our Networking Events!

Our Business Networking Events in Worthing and Adur are informal, fun, dynamic and incredibly well attended.

Members enjoy a variety of quality networking events each month with at least one FREE networking event a month.

Coronavirus update: Following concerns about the Coronavirus, Worthing and Adur Chamber have had to take the decision to move all face to face events online. We are constantly reviewing the situation and will only return to face to face events and training when we feel that it is safe to do so and will comply with government guidelines.
