Today’s business environment is constantly changing and constantly challenging. Hove Business Association is here to be a friend, ally and supporter when it comes to getting the things done that help local businesses to thrive and prosper. Our members are drawn from the professions, from retail, from transport, travel and leisure, and through our partnerships our reach extends into the public and third sectors.
Since 1929 Hove Business Association has been working with its member businesses to help promote doing business in Hove, and to help tackle the local issues that get in the way of local businesses doing well. Recent initiatives have included projects to promote the Hove retail sector through Christmas marketing initiatives and support for Small Business Day. A number of new initiatives are also being developed to help improve the environment for doing businesses in Hove.
We’re a Business Association but we also recognise that our members are mindful of their wider responsibilities to the local community. Initiatives to support local children’s and homeless charities have been well supported by members and fundraising to supply defibrilators or AED’s for key points in the town has so far added two more life saving devices to our community.
We’re focused on local business needs but we are not parochial. We work with partners in the city and bring in speakers – for instance from the Bank of England – to give us the national perspective on changes affecting business.
We work alongside the Hove Business Partnership to help promote the interests of businesses in Hove, large or small.
