What Our Members Say

“Our membership of Waterford Chamber helps us stay connected with what’s happening in the local environment. Working in a fast-moving multinational company makes that information-sharing and networking all the more valuable as we look to think globally and act locally. It is also important that we have a group like Chamber to represent Waterford’s interests with government and other key stakeholders in a cohesive way. This strong voice for Waterford business will help ensure Ireland’s oldest city reaches its full potential and prospers in the 21st Century.”
