Is the Southport Chamber of Commerce Merging?
In a nutshell, the Board have decided we can serve the Businesses in our Region better as a stand-alone Chamber and not as a "Southport Division" of another Chamber that also have Divisions of Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Burleigh, Nerang, Robina etc.
Southport is the recognised CBD which is experiencing by far the largest growth over the next 10 plus years, with a higher per Capita Income for Employees than other Regions and we believe a purposeful Key Region approach is better than a fragmented one when championing the Gold Coast as a serious place to establish and expand a Business.
Whilst other Regions have strengths in their chosen focus, we believe the growth of certain National and International markets are those we can more than accommodate, thus we are having serious discussions with major Stakeholders to ensure we do our best to do justice to those here now and cement the Southport major Development focus.
