Chamber Update - April 2019

03 Apr 2019

Run for the Kids

We’re now only a week away from the iconic Run for the Kids returning to Docklands. We can’t stress how much of an opportunity this is for our traders in the precinct.

There’s been some amazing opportunities for branded marketing and we expect some 40,000 people to arrive for the day.

Charity breakfast

Speaking of the Run for the Kids, we are hosting a very special charity breakfast on Friday, April 5. The beautiful Berth restaurant will be our venue, with race organiser Steve Moneghetti in attendance. Every single cent of ticket prices and funds raised on the day will go directly to the cause.

You can find the event listed on both of our websites – http://www.docklandscc.com.au and http://www.visitdocklands.com.au or on our Facebook – Docklands Melbourne.

The future of our harbour and waterways

In the past month there has been a large amount of communication and consultation regarding the future of our harbour and river.

The Docklands Community Forum met and high on the agenda was the remaining proposal of a tram bridge at Yarra’s Edge.

The chamber has also been very active in the area and is in the process of securing a business case for long term activation of the harbour.

Yes, we have Firelight every year, but we are seeking long-term and permanent activation of the harbour.

Firelight trading

For those businesses who are interested in trading for Firelight, the expression of interest has just been released and can be found on our websites but also by searching the City of Melbourne home page as well.

This is an early release opportunity for traders to register their business for trading over this activation period.

Chamber executive

In the past three months we have had some small changes to the makeup of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce executive committee.

We welcome on board Lisa Vacirca of The District Docklands and thank both Lisa Oatham and Cameron Baker for their service.
