Chamber Update - Nov 2017

06 Nov 2017

Harbour Town Melbourne is becoming The District Docklands, a new shopping oasis for Melbourne featuring a retail centre re-launch.

H&M, Cotton On and other exciting retailers are now open in a new village for Docklands. A new entertainment precinct, fresh food hall, Marriott Hotel, residences, commercial offices and open public spaces are also coming soon.

The exciting transformation in several stages will deliver a vibrant destination that is truly Melbourne, a natural hub for community spirit and engagement. With an active calendar of events, festivals, attractions and community activities, it will offer unique experiences every day. It’s a place with something for everyone.

A full crowd packed our latest network event

A full contingent of 50 DCC members and guests packed our latest network event on Friday, October 6.

We began the evening at the beautifully renovated Woolshed Pub with President Johanna Maxwell welcoming all.

A convivial affair led to some great networking before the guests headed off to the Wonderland Spiegeltent, currently homed at the corner of LaTrobe St and Harbour Esplanade. Two and a half hours of laughs ensued with Peter Helliar headlining the acts.

Keep an eye out for our next event as they are fully subscribed within days of release.
