Chamber Update - May 2018 Image

What do the winter months mean for Docklands?

Every year we hear that the onset of winter brings business numbers down with the prevailing attitude of Melburnians’ that Docklands is cold and windy.

We’ve been in constant talks with the City of Melbourne’s events team over the past few months and we are very confident in the increased focus on activations in our precinct this year.

We know, for example, that Firelight is going to have a presence around the entire harbour – not just the NewQuay side. We also know that Harbour Esplanade is going to be activated for this three-day festival. We might even have a surprise in store that will blow people away…

How can Docklands best take advantage of efforts like these? Stay informed and get involved – our Facebook profile has over 151,000 followers and always has the latest information regarding events – http://www.fb.me/MelbDock.

The District Makers Market

Speaking of new activations … The District Docklands will be hosting the District Makers Market every Sunday until June 3 from 11am to 4pm.

We’re loving everything that they are doing and seeing this new market, with a focus on homemade food and artisan crafts, is a very welcome addition to our Sunday routine.

Successes uniting our stakeholders

You might have seen we’ve been very active with our local businesses this past month. We’ve physically stepped in and spoken with over 60 restaurants, cafes and retailers, informing them of the opportunities for marketing with us, the City of Melbourne and the planned activations coming up in June and July.

We’ve also had a packed house for our most recent stakeholder meeting. If you’d like to stay informed of these sessions then head to our website – http://www.docklandscc.com.au – and whilst you are there sign up to our newsletter.
