The World Chambers Competition is the only global awards programme to recognize the most innovative projects undertaken by chambers of commerce and industry from around the world.
The Competition provides a unique opportunity for chambers to showcase originality and ingenuity, demonstrate determination to strengthen SMEs, improve services provided to members. Since its inception in 2003, the Competition has generated an array of case studies demonstrating entrepreneurial diversity and inspiring other chambers. Entries come not only from developed countries, but also from developing and least developed countries.
Chambers of all kinds – from bilateral, local, regional and national to public and private law – can enter the Competition.
Previous finalists and winners of this increasingly popular event have experienced a significant impact on their local and national profile, as well as on their influence, due to the recognition received for their participating projects.
"Winning a World Chambers Competition award brought us recognition from our partners at home and abroad. By setting the highest technical standards to qualify for the award, it has helped our chambers gain access to important actors in the public and private sectors alike. Every chamber looking to strengthen its entrepreneurship programmes should apply." Joseph Paul Dornelles Cairoli, President, The Confederation of Brazilian Commercial and Business Associations
