Connect – Grow – Inspire – Represent

The Waikato Chamber of Commerce works with local and national communities to support and represent the collective voice of Waikato business.


Make new connections, learn new things, energise your business and people, and have your views heard. We've made it easy to join and connect with Waikato businesses. And we also help you out with all things export services and authorising.

Join the Chamber for less than the price of a glass of wine per week! Find out more below, or contact our team.


Chamber events will commence again in February 2024! Keep an eye on our event calendar for updates.

Have a safe & enjoyable holiday season.
