Chamber Update - June 2019

29 May 2019

Firelight 2019

The cold mornings have signalled the start of winter but that also means Firelight is just around the corner and there are some massive additions to the spectacle this year.

Most notably the light and laser producers behind features at Sydney’s Vivid and Brisbane’s River Festival are making their way to Victoria Harbour and will showcase a nightly display.

The Docklands Chamber has been pushing for this type of activation for years as a way to build momentum behind a permanent feature in our harbour, so let’s hope it creates the same excitement as it has done in those two cities.

By the time this is published, the City of Melbourne will have released full details and we’ll be sharing them across our websites and social media. We’ve also invested in and sponsored this activation in the hopes it raises the bar to a new level for Firelight.

200 members

The chamber has just registered its 200th member business.

Our goals as an entity are pretty simple: To advocate on behalf of Docklands’ best interests; to promote our member businesses; and to encourage our community and precinct to work together.

Head to either one of our websites – http://www.docklandscc.com.au or http://www.visitdocklands.com.au for further information on how you can get involved.

International phone scams

It’s not Docklands-specific but there is currently a wave of international robot phone scams. An automated robot dials your number, hangs up and then you are charged astronomical fees when you return the call, often with the person answering pretending to be emergency services or some other false identification designed to keep you on the phone.

Here’s a few tips:

  • Don’t return a call from an international number that rings only once;
  • Don’t return a missed call made to you in the early hours of the morning;
  • Google any number you are unsure of; and
  • Delete any calls from the +37 phone code (currently Latvia is the country where this scam is most rampant).
