Dunbartonshire Businesses were out in force at an important Launch & Showcase event recently.
Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Highland Reserve Forces & Cadets Association (HRFCA) and Amazon to host the “Launch & Showcase” at the Conference Hotel – part of the NHS Golden Jubilee family.
Around 100 guests were in attendance for the launch of Dunbartonshire Chamber’s new brand identity and website and insights into exciting new plans and member benefits.
