In Chamber Shoes - 2018 Draws to a close!

Remember, remember lets not do another 10 events next November...

It's been an amazing, whirlwind 2018 and the last month of the year is looking as busy, but with more internal focus as we round off the year with a brilliant Xmas Social before we put our heads down and plan for 2019. 

Closing another fantastic DACC year with more than 730 members, 100+ events with over 4,000 attendees, a growing team and many new Partners makes for another year to celebrate indeed!

We'll be locking up 37 City Quay at 2pm on 21st December with a remote skeleton Export Service in operation until we reopen the offices on 3rd January - see you all in 2019!

November - didn't we cram the events in!

DACC works with Scottish Government to bring the National Economic Forum to Dundee.

The Future of Business Growth

Held at the V&A Dundee, we heard from many local businesses who are growing, and we discussed what the future looks like for supporting businesses to achieve their goals. Thanks to Journeycall for their support for the afternoon & evening events.

DACC Events from China to Circular Economy

We held a 'Trading with China' to learn from the Scottish Chamber network trade missions, explored the opportunities and set the scene for 2019's visit to Beijing & the Shandong Province. Speakers included James Buchan of Zudu and Catriona Llanwarne, legal expert.

B2B Circular by Design

We ran a very interactive event where we explored how to take advantage of Circular Economy opportunities, using design principles to shape the conversation.

From Global Games to Our Wullie!

The Department of International Trade sponsored an event at 37 City Quay to showcase the internationally trading games companies, and to explore the various business support that ambitious businesses can access to reach overseas markets.

Oor Wullie's BIG Bucket Trail

We attended the Dundee launch of the 2019 Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail - a hugely inspiring evening discussing how important it will be to helo support The ARCHIE Foundation again next summer as Dundee becomes one of the five host cities: Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Championing Dundee women

A brilliant Coca-Cola 5by20 Exhibition & Trade Event - over 40 stands, inspiring speakers and a great celebration of the programme participants.

Taking part in the 520ft Challenge

Could we get 520 feet in to visit the event - of course we could! Well done to Lauren & Angie for all of their hard work along with the fab 5by20 Event Team.

Into December...

Last event of the year: the DACC Xmas Social Event - over 120 people came to Hotel Indigo to celebrate the end of a busy year, visit the Showcase stands and donate toys to local children!

Scottish Chambers Annual Business Address

Its off to Glasgow to fly the flag for Dundee & Angus businesses - good networking and great to hear Scotland's First Minister tell the audience how important the SCC network is, and to confirm £2m for the network to progress International Chamber & B2B links in the next 3 years!
