Your Chamber continues to engage with all levels of government, fellow Chambers and CCIQ to ensure you are informed and every effort is made to advance the interests of small businesses around Southport. Business sentiment ranges from devastation in some sectors, to hesitancy in others due to the uncertainty of possible lockdowns, to embracing opportunities in what some see as the new normal.

As a City Heart Taskforce member, The Southport Chamber of Commerce was pleased to attend the City Heart Task Force Reimagine 2.0 Breakfast and Forum with the Honourable Ms Angie Bell MP and many other city leaders.

Queensland businesses on New South Wales border to benefit from multi-million-dollar funding injection

AS the oldest and longest standing chamber on the Gold Coast, the Southport Chamber of Commerce has been a voice for local businesses since founded on April 23, 1912, by inaugural president Edward Fass.

This past month has seen the Chamber working behind the scenes with CCIQ and Southern Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce to try to find a solution to the devastating impact on Gold Coast businesses from the hard border closure.

Immerse yourself at Regent Lane this Spring at the City’s first CBD Sundown event on Friday, 24 September 6pm – 9pm. Entry is free.

If your businesses is one of the many that is feeling the impact of no staff, no customers or not being able to trade, then now is the time to start to plan how to mitigate the impacts. The Greater Southern GC Chamber has been lobbying for the QLD Government to recognise the very localised impacts being felt by almost every small business in the border area one way or another, and to get some very targeted support for those businesses.

The City of Gold Coast (CoGC) is investing $3 million into a ‘Play Money Rewards' program to support the city’s tourism, dining, retail, and arts and culture industries. The program will be facilitated by Destination Gold Coast (DGC).

The businesses represented by the Southport Chamber are grateful for the $600 million business and tourism support package announced by the Federal Treasurer which includes support for tourism businesses further to the existing State Government grants package.
