On June 1st, the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce will relocate to 920 Justison Street at the Wilmington Riverfront. The Chamber will be taking a step forward to better serve its members and to promote economic growth in Delaware. In searching for the new location, there were a few necessities that the space had to have: easy access for their members; free and spacious parking for their visitors; an appealing work space for staff; and an attractive and exciting venue. The location at the Wilmington Riverfront meets all those goals and more.
Chamber President Mark Kleinschmidt says, “The new location is meant to send a strong message about the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce’s commitment to the development of the city of Wilmington. It will not only enhance our ability to serve the 250 of our 1,200 members currently in the City, it will be an attractive location for our members to come for our various programs.”
The new space will be broken into three highly related specialized areas: 1. Chamber offices 2. Space for their small business incubator program, the Emerging Enterprise Center, and 3. Shared space for a conference center, meeting rooms, event space and an open area for collaborative work. The collaborative work space will serve as an attractive and comfortable clubhouse where their members and participants of the Emerging Enterprise Center will come and gather to do business and network to enhance their growth opportunities.
Joe Fitzgerald, Government Relations Specialist and long time Chamber member said “Dover is the seat of Government, Wilmington is our business and legal capital. The Chamber is committed to working with the Purzycki administration and the business community to foster growth and prosperity in the business and legal capitol of our state.”
To celebrate the Chamber’s move, they will have a grand reopening and ribbon cutting at “SummerFest Expo & Open House” July 25th at the new location, Dravo Plaza, 920 Justison Street. This free event will include tabletop displays, door prizes, food truck vendors, festive games and more. Please visit www.ncccc.com to register to attend.
