Case study: Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce – 5 Leaders, 5 Days

5 Leaders, 5 Days was an unprecedented series of events which saw the leaders of each of the five main political parties launch their economic policies for the 2011 Assembly elections to an audience of senior business people and NI Chamber of Commerce members in Belfast. The series placed the NI Chamber of Commerce at the centre of the election debate on jobs and the economy and ensured that much of the media commentary on that issue was hooked in or around NI Chamber events.

5 Leaders, 5 Days ensured the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce led the business and economy debate during the election. To help do this leading businesses were identified to support each event by providing a location.

The outcome of the project was widespread coverage in the media on the island of Ireland which reinforced the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce’s position as the premier business representative organisation in the region.
