Business Horsham celebrated 15 years as Horsham's leading business support group.
The regional business group will develop a package to highlight the involved businesses to mark the milestone.
Business Horsham ambassador Stacey Taig said continuing after 15 years was an achievement in itself.
"Business Horsham is there to support and develop the progress of our business community," she said.
One project Business Horsham has launched was business cadets for young and emerging businesses.

Horsham's 2021 Young Citizen of the Year Bart Turgoose obtained a cadetship as a business support officer with Business Horsham.
"I'm part of the cadetship but I also drop in and have a chat and help make community connections to Business Horsham," he said.
"As a cadet, Business Horsham has connected me to a lot of amazing people. It's really good. I also build a lot of connections with the community."
Business Horsham was developed as a project with Horsham Rural City Council. Two groups amalgamated together to become an effective and positive force within the business community.
"Right from the beginning what I saw was this willingness to come together and support one another," Ms Taig said.
"In regional areas it's really difficult to sustain a business group. It's a lot of hard work and a lot of dedication.
"What I find with Business Horsham is that it's a collective of a larger group of industry representatives and that's something we are going to be focusing on."
At home businesses was an area of focus Horsham Business identified after the onset of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
"There are so many home based businesses," Ms Taig said.
"We want to encourage people with home based businesses to join Business Horsham, it's the perfect platform for that type of business.
"The challenge of any chamber is continuing the momentum and the passion and when you get a group like Business Horsham, we have all these people who have passion and ideas. Our treasurer came up with the cadet idea.
"It's about having that platform."
Mr Turgoose said anyone who was keen on business as a young person should look into the cadetship.
"It's sponsored by another business. A bigger business will take you under their wing and look after you, mentor you and make sure you have all the help you need," he said.
Ms Taig said Business Horsham was eager to get young entrepreneurs and home based business out of the shadows.
"We want to bring them out and show them Business Horsham is a wonderful opportunity to promote your business and get your name out there," she said.
