Showcase your business, your people and your services by hosting a Chamber BA5 at your business.

Business After Fives, or BA5s, are networking evenings hosted by Chamber member companies. Members use these low-key after five evenings to interactively promote their products and services while networking with Chamber guests. Hosting a BA5 is an ideal way to involve others in your business activities and a great way to connect your business to other businesses in the community and build your networks. 

  • Host at your premises
  • Invite Chamber businesses
  • Market through the Chamber

BA5s take place at the host company's premises or venue of their choice, and are enthusiastically supported by Chamber members. They provide the perfect opportunity for members to network, socialise, share experiences and make valuable business connections in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Refreshments are served throughout the evening and the host makes a brief presentation about their business.

The Chamber organises and markets the event on your behalf, promoting it online through the South Canterbury Chamber website and in an events e-newsletter. Hosting companies are required to cover the venue, catering and administration costs.



I was so happy to find a networking group I could attend after work. Early mornings just don't work for me. Thank you!
