Event Promotion

Exciting News: we have just signed a media partnership with Business News, which we are super excited about!


Business News will be sending a team of journalists up to Broome for our 2024 Commercial Growth & Investment Forum on the 14th May and will be releasing a special edition "North West - Broome" Magazine as well as a raft of digital editorial articles throughout the day covering all exciting announcements.


This magazine will be a first for Broome and will be one of the final print runs before the end of the financial year, so it's very special, and we will have great coverage.


Business News CEO, Charles Kobelke will be attending the forum and co-MC'ing the day with our very own CEO, Sharni Foulkes.


We will be conducting extensive advertising for the event and really hope to make this our biggest forum yet – I'm sure you can picture it already!


Our presenters and members are being offered 25% off advertising in this special edition to support local, and you can organise this with them directly by emailing: samya.tsesmelis@businessnews.com.au and letting her know you're part of the event.


If you're interested in sponsorship opportunities or being involved in this year's forum, please contact the Broome Chamber Events Team on 08 9193 5553 / events@broomechamber.com.au
