Welcome to the New ChattanoogaTrend.com

Business Trend is our Chattanooga Chamber’s flagship publication. We spotlight businesses in our region, share advice on working smarter and keep you updated on Chamber and economic development news. Business Trend contains two parts. Our print version is available in the last section of the Chattanooga Times Free Press’ EDGE monthly Magazine. Our online version is available right here, at ChattanoogaTrend.com, and in our Thursday Business Trend newsletter.

We’ve redesigned our Business Trend website as a one-stop platform for all Chamber-related content. The new redesign helps us share Chamber stories in many ways including articles, photos — and yes — even videos!

Here’s a list of FAQs on making the best out of your new website experience.

How do I search for my favorite articles?

Articles are easily found through our simple-to-use search bar at the top of the homepage. Search articles by keywords, or by the specific writers you like to read. You can also search articles by categories through the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Click drop-down menu in top right corner to search by category.
