We already have business group representation. Why do we need a Chamber Alliance?

The Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance has a different role from other organisations. We represent business groups as a whole in discussions with the Sunshine Coast Council, the University of the Sunshine Coast and other stakeholders in the region.

Our goal is to be the central hub for disseminating information that is useful to you. We share news on business grants, new industries and development plans.

2017 is ramping up to be an exciting year with the opening of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport. Getting your products to new overseas markets will be a real possibility.

As a regional business group we are part of the conversations that matter and we can keep you in the picture.
