Chamber and Destination Docklands to co-operate

Chamber and Destination Docklands to co-operate Image

Destination Docklands and the Docklands Chamber of Commerce will this month announce greater formal co-operation.

The two organisations will announce their agreement at a stakeholder event later this month.

According to Destination Docklands director of marketing and events Kelly Jensen, the arrangement was still being formalised but both parties were very enthusiastic.

“I think the decision to partner with the chamber is definitely the right move. This collaboration will make it much easier for us to provide feedback and information to each other and our stakeholders,” Ms Jensen said.

“Each organisation has different strengths so, by collaborating, we’ll be able to achieve much more.”

Docklands Chamber of Commerce president Joh Maxwell agreed, saying a joint focus on maximising opportunities for events and business would continue to showcase Docklands and its waterways.

“Along with stronger outcomes for Docklands, it makes sense for us to work together rather than in isolation,” Mrs Maxwell said.

“Destination Docklands understand the marketing and events side of things, while the Docklands Chamber of Commerce has connections with local businesses, so we’ll be able to draw them into the new opportunities that will develop from this relationship.”

Further cementing the new working relationship, Docklands Chamber of Commerce Stefanie Schulz last month began working from the Destination Docklands office.
