Buffalo Niagara Partnership


The Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s mission is to connect and mobilize the region’s employers and advocate for economic growth and opportunity in Buffalo Niagara.


The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is the area’s regional chamber of commerce and privately-funded economic development organization. Our members employ more than a quarter of a million people in the Buffalo Niagara region. By mobilizing members and strategic partners around common goals, we grow private investment and jobs in Buffalo Niagara through advocacy, business development, and convening. The Partnership has been working to make Buffalo Niagara a better place to do business since 1844.

As the regional chamber of commerce and privately funded economic development organization, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership is proud to have played an important role in helping to bring about the region’s renaissance.
