The Chamber’s networking events, such as our monthly After 5 functions, are renowned as the premier networking opportunities in Geelong but it’s our lesser-known formal networking services that allow you to strategically build your stakeholder group.
Our expert facilitators can help you establish connections with:
- Other businesses in Geelong
- Businesses Australia-wide
- Overseas trade organisations
- All levels of government
Or perhaps you're seeking peer support rather than expanding your customer base. The Chamber also facilitates programs where you can gain support from people experiencing the same business challenges as you.

Many successful businesses don’t rely on the ‘general public’ as their prime source of trade – their clients are predominately other businesses who use their services in their day-to-day operations.
Get the attention of the people who matter with a strategic formal introduction facilitated by the Chamber.
Would a personal introduction boost your business?
Sometimes it’s hard to get a ‘foot in the door’ when making contact with a business you believe could present you with new and exciting opportunities.
The Geelong Chamber of Commerce facilitates Business to Business connections by introducing Members to other organisations within the region that may have synergies with your business.
By doing this, we encourage trade with businesses sourcing supplies and services from within the region in which they operate – boosting our economic and employment bottom line.
Business to Business introductions are also used to help form strategic business relationships, allowing you to partner with other businesses to mutually expand your opportunities.
The Business to Business service is only available to Chamber Members.
If you’re looking to target specific industries or businesses talk to us today via email or phone 5222 2234.
