This is who we are

Headquartered in East London/Buffalo City with offices in Queenstown.
BKCOB is not-for-profit, a-political, a-religious, membership based organisation which counts over 700 businesses as members from a wide array of sectors.
“When you meet at a Chamber networking, and you leave having made a few friends, that is a relationship for life”
“There is no better place to develop your business than the Border-Kei Chamber. I have been able to meet and do business with the nicest and most professional people. Each of the Chamber’s Annual signature events has its own attraction to attendees and sponsors. We get to meet new business contacts, exchange ideas, strengthen existing relationships and enhance our brand with members. I have to say that the email updates on what is happening etc are first-class and I always seem to know what is the next event. The best part about the Border-Kei Chamber of Business network is the opportunities they provide with a wide variety of like-minded business people in relaxed surroundings. Who new networking could be so fun?”
"Becoming a member of the BKCOB has definitely been the best decision we have made from a corporate marketing point of view. The ongoing friendly support we receive from the Chamber and access to the wide variety of networking events and functions you continually host throughout the year is paramount to the growth of any business. This has been the most successful and fastest marketing tool for increasing our Groups exposure. It can clearly be seen through the history of the chamber as well as the volume and exclusivity of its corporate members across the business spectrum, with ties both nationally and internationally. The direct and indirect exposure we continually receive via your well-kept website as well as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram are invaluable."
"Thank you Sam for your passion in growing businesses. Your creative energy and marketing ideas help us fuel our sales during these challenging times and beyond. The value you deliver to our business makes it worth our while to be affiliated with the BKCOB. Thank you…"
“Of the many positives associated with the chamber, the one that appeals most to a journalist is that they never fudge issues or squat on the fence.”
