SBF members fall under three categories: Statutory Members, Constituent Members and Associate Members, with 12 of the major chambers of commerce and business associations in Singapore represented as Constituent Members. SBF members represent the top 20 per cent of companies in Singapore.
Networking OpportunitiesSBF is committed to helping businesses grow by providing valuable opportunities for networking. Overseas trade missions are organised regularly and members can participate in these overseas trade exhibitions and fairs. SBF members will also have the opportunity to attend meetings with visiting overseas trade representatives, delegates and diplomats to help them identify and seek business and investment opportunities. In addition, feedback sessions and networking events are held regularly as a platform for members to identify new business opportunities.
Training and MentorshipSBF regularly organises a wide range of training events on international trade, labour relations and other business topics. A mentorship programme has also been established for members to seek advice on business practices such as business continuity management, branding and finance.
Trade PublicationsSBF provides timely and relevant information to its members through various media platforms. All members receive the SBF’s quarterly business magazine, BiZQ which features articles on business trends, global trade and manpower related issues. Members can leverage SBF’s BizX website, a dedicated SBF platform for members to advertise their products and services and post their company profiles on the site, thus increasing their visibility in potential markets and at the same time facilitate business matching. As a member of International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) National Committees in Singapore, members are able to purchase copies of the ICC Publication from SBF.
