Mission Statement

The mission of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce is to EMPOWER BUSINESS TO THRIVE by OPTIMIZING CONNECTIONS.
We serve the luxury capital of the world through marketing, advocacy and education for the Beverly Hills business community. The Chamber – with its committees, councils, staff and valuable members – works with city officials, local businesses and the community at large to promote the local economy.

The Chamber has been the voice of business in Beverly Hills since 1923. We are a membership organization comprised of more than 800 local businesses who believe in the importance of creating a solid foundation within the community. To accomplish our mission, the Chamber relies on the efforts of our members, our Board of Directors, volunteers and the generosity of companies who sponsor our events and programs.

The official publication of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce is published three times per year by Modern Luxury, there is a Fall/Winter issue, Spring issue, and Summer issue. This custom magazine is distributed along with Angeleno magazine. In addition to the mailed distribution to affluent homes in Beverly Hills, BH is distributed in rooms at luxury hotels and key commercial locations throughout the city.

BH is the go-to guide of all things luxury for discerning Beverly Hills visitors and residents. Custom content includes lifestyle recommendations from the top concierges and notable tastemakers in Beverly Hills, a calendar of top cultural events and fetes, and listings of the best spots for dining, shopping, culture and health & beauty in Beverly Hills.

The history of the Chamber goes hand in hand with the history of the City of Beverly Hills. Partners for over 85 years, the Chamber has been instrumental in the evolution of the City, both in its community and business landscapes. Rich in tradition and rich in accomplishment, the Chamber of Commerce helped to create the brand known around the world as Beverly Hills.

The United States Census of 1920 counted 674 people as residents of the newly incorporated City of Beverly Hills. Known as “Midway between Los Angeles and the Sea,” the new community, while steeped in pride and optimism, was facing inevitable challenges in those early years.

The real estate boom in the early 1920s created a series of issues for the residents, and new businesses needed to support the population growth. On May 1, 1923, sixty people gathered from the community in the first meeting of what would quickly become the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce.

On June 11, 1923, an organization and a motion to incorporate a Chamber of Commerce into the city of Beverly Hills was approved. The Chamber drafted formal articles of incorporation and on July 16, 1923, petitioning to the State of California that the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce be incorporated “to promote the economic, commercial, industrial, civic and social welfare of the people of the City of Beverly Hills and vicinity.”  The state granted the petition on July 20, 1923, and from there, the Chamber went to work.

YOSHIKI To Perform At JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles Grand Opening CelebrYOSHIKI will create a special musical performance to celebrate the Grand Opening of JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles at Hollywood & Highland  opening all its doors to the public starting August 25, 2018.

JAPAN HOUSE has been located in London and São Paulo already. And this is the first JAPAN HOUSE in North America.
JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles seeks to foster awareness and appreciation for Japan around the world by showcasing the very best of Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation, technology, and more. An innovative project of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, JAPAN HOUSE is comprised of three hubs—London, Los Angeles and Sao Paulo.
JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles occupies two floors in the popular Hollywood & Highland entertainment complex and brings various aspects of Japan to American and international audiences.

On the second floor, the facility spans more than 6,000 sq. ft. and features an exhibition gallery, a retail space that carries an expertly curated selection of uniquely Japanese products, a small café, and a sub-gallery suitable for intimate gallery talks and smaller exhibitions. The fifth-floor space spans 8,000 sq. ft, and features an elegant, fine-dining Japanese restaurant, a relaxing library, a multi-purpose event venue, and simply spectacular views of Los Angeles.
YOSHIKI serves as an advisor for JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles along with honorary advisor Larry Ellison who is an American businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who is co-founder, executive chairman and chief technology officer of Oracle Corporation. His active involvement in Japan and his appreciation for Japan’s art and culture is widely known.
JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles offers a bridge-building cultural experience that will be exciting to anyone who is curious about Japan. By bringing Japan to America, the project will give those of us living in North America an exceptional opportunity.” said Mr. Ellison.

JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles thanks Mr. Ellison for his commitment and generous support to the project,” said Ms. Yuko Kaifu, President, JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles. “We are honored to welcome him as an Honorary Advisor.

YOSHIKI has been invited to give a special congratulatory performance at the unveiling of the newly-completed facility, which will include a special cocktail reception and a seated dinner with the international government, business, and cultural leaders, including the Ministry officials of Foreign Affairs of Japan, the Consul General of Japan, and celebrities.

Demonstrating his commitment to the mission of JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles, YOSHIKI personally made arrangements for a limited number of American fans to attend the private event in the unique, intimate setting in the heart of Hollywood. YOSHIKI has announced the invitation on August 3rd, 2018 on his official Instagram, and applications for the rare passes surpassed the capacity limit just minutes after he posted the news.

Why don’t you visit JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles in Hollywood next time you will come to Los Angeles to discover cool Japanese art, design, innovation, technology, and more.
