Waterford Chamber wins Chamber of the Year Award


Waterford Chamber of Commerce has been named as Chamber of the Year at the 2021 Chamber Awards.

The awards, hosted by Chambers Ireland and sponsored by Zurich, recognise the outstanding work of chambers of commerce throughout the country in supporting local, regional and national business.

Waterford Chamber was shortlisted in six of the seven award categories and was recognised for its high level of activity throughout the year despite challenging operational conditions.

It won Best Local Authority Collaboration as it partnered with Waterford City and County Council to showcase the seaside town of Tramore as part of a successful application to the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Awards. This resulted in Tramore receiving €20,000 towards community projects.

Of this, €15,000 will be used to support the development of an outdoor market space for food and craft businesses at the old Tramore Railway Station with €5,000 provided to Tramore Tidy Towns.
