Economic Development

Our Goal

One of the goals of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce is to increase the economic “pie” – to grow business for our Chamber members, and also to attract new businesses to the region.

The Chamber participates in a number of activities to ensure the long term growth of Beverly Hills and Beverly Hills adjacent economies.

Economic Development Council

The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Economic Development Council (EDC) meets monthly for a luncheon at Spago Beverly Hills or virtually. EDC is an elite group of businessmen and women in the City who meet to network and engage with a high-caliber speaker on important policy, business and economic topics. The EDC provides access for its members to the latest information on regional business trends and activities, not only in the City, but also throughout the region. The exclusive investment opportunity of Economic Development Council annual membership is $2,500.

Learn more about EDC by contacting the Vice President of Economic Development & Government Affairs, Blair Schlecter. Phone: 310.248.1000,109 Email: schlecter@beverlyhillschamber.com

New York City & San Francisco Missions

In conjunction with the City of Beverly Hills, the Chamber organizes annual trips to New York City and San Francisco to attract new business to Beverly Hills. The trip encompasses visits to some of New York’s finest restaurants, retailers, and professional organizations, to encourage their businesses to open a branch in the City of Beverly Hills to lend further prestige and renown for their businesses. The Chamber and City of Beverly Hills have established deep and productive relationships with businesses in Manhattan and San Fransisco through this mission.

Mayoral Business Retention Meetings

Under the auspices of the City of Beverly Hills, the Chamber organizes a series of meetings between the Mayor of Beverly Hills and businesses to determine how the businesses are doing, what challenges they are facing, and what the City and Chamber can do to help. These meetings have helped to identify solutions for making the City of Beverly Hills an even greater place to do business.

Broker’s Roundtable

The Broker’s Roundtable bi-annual meeting provides an opportunity for the leading commercial brokers and senior officials from the City to gather and share information about new developments in the City’s commercial landscape and leasing opportunities.
