The Penrith Valley Chamber is up and running in 2023 with a new strategy and roadmap for the year ahead.
The key priorities that emerged from a Chamber Board workshop last year include growing relationships with government, council, and other business organisations; connecting to local big business to inform the Chamber advocacy program for Penrith and the west; promoting the visitor economy opportunities attached to new Western Sydney Airport (pictured); and building the Penrith community through positive business connectivity.
Collaboration is the key, when it comes to providing the best support for local business and positioning Penrith Valley for the future. Regular catch ups with St Marys Town Centre, Penrith CBD Corporation, the City leadership and economic team and the State Government agencies are underway.
The popular Chamber Collective program continues to thrive.
This is a bi monthly brains-trust roundtable where members from different industry sectors challenge and inspire each other, exchange knowledge and advice to develop new opportunities. A business young guns initiative for start up entrepreneurs is on the cards later this year.
The 2023 Chamber major events program will focus on two key themes: A Made in Penrith Manufacturing Forum in the first half of the year, followed by a “ready for take off” Tourism and Visitor Economy Summit in the second half of the year, as the Western Sydney Airport continues its promise to transform the visitor economy in our region.
The Chamber Connect monthly networking events kick off this month starting with an outdoor event at Penrith Whitewater hosted by Fox and Co and Paddle Australia.
It’s a chance to catch up and enjoy the beautiful natural surrounds, connect, share and learn. You can find out more on the website.
Finally, with a State Election around the corner there is lots to play for in western Sydney, including new funding to help develop the future of tourism and improve liveability in our region.
