LIFE BEGINS AFTER COFFEE

Join us on Thursday July 7th for a coffee and chat at Solbar Ocean Street Maroochydore.

There is no charge to attend the Coffee Networking Morning. Just buy yourself a cup of coffee or breakfast and catch up with some other members or make some new contacts. Also find out about the chambers’ new membership options.

This will be informal meeting with a couple of members of the committee available to have a chat. We are looking to hold these on a regular monthly basis in addition to our other events.

Thursday 7th July
7.30am – 8.30am
Sol Bar Ocean St Maroochydore

Please let Susi know if you’re keen to attend so that we can give the venue an idea of numbers. susi@maroochy.org or 5443 5661.


Malcolm Aikman, Director of Urbis will provide a commercial snapshot of the Sunshine Coast including the key economic drivers that are fuelling the growth, the general business and commercial conditions, business confidence levels and a more in-depth look at the status of commercial office space on the Coast including take-up and vacancy rates, current stock and what’s coming into the market with projects such as SunCentral and how this impacts on the commercial property landscape.

Mayor Mark Jamieson will share his vision for how we conduct business and grow the Sunshine Coast economy in the future, outline the major projects fuelling this growth, share why this is the right time for businesses to invest on the Coast and indicate how the existing business community can capitalise on the planned expansion.

John Knaggs, CEO of SunCentral Maroochydore will provide an update on the project timelines, what can be expected onsite now that works are well underway, what the CBD development means for the business community and what opportunities it presents for existing and new business on the Coast.
