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.

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.

Deteriorating business confidence on the Gold Coast is the lowest in the state, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland’s June quarter Pulse Survey shows.

We are in a business events season. An intimate group of our members were privileged to attend a special presentation and tour of Griffith University’s Institute of Glycomics on 27 May 2021 following by networking. Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics is a flagship biomedical research institute based right here on the Gold Coast

The Council Pop-Up activation on the corner of Nerang and Scarborough streets has been well received by residents and business owners. For this first week of June, Council set up with Police to engage on issues. Our first priority was simply to reclaim that space. Second, to engage with CBD locals on what is important to them. People clearly appreciated the opportunity.

Our personal safety, and the safety of our community, is important to all of us. I have had contact from many locals recently concerned about escalating crime in our local area, and right across the Gold Coast for that matter. We need your help, as the business community of Southport, to convince the Palaszczuk Labor Government to listen to and act on our community’s concerns.
