Business club to capitalise on the Olympics

THE world’s first fully dedicated Olympic business venue, the Business Club Australia business centre, in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, has been opened by Minister for Trade Mark Vaile.

Mr Vaile said the centre would be the central point from which Australia would project its national business culture to the world.

“The business centre will be a focal point – a venue where Australian firms will be able to network and create business opportunities with their counterparts from across the globe,” Mr Vaile said.

“For the Australian business community this outstanding new facility will be the key Olympic venue for the next 12 weeks.’

The business centre has been designed to function as an ultra-modern setting in which Business Club Australia members will be able to conduct meetings with their domestic and overseas-based counterparts visiting Sydney for the Games.

From September the business centre’s capacity will be further enhanced when a 98 metre Incat catamaran will berth alongside Wharf 7 for the Olympic period creating a spectacular and highly-visible element for the thousands of visitors expected to visit Darling Harbour at Games-time.

Both the business centre and Incat, which are fully equipped with the latest in information and communication technology, will serve as venues for a special events program scheduled from September 15 to October 1.

As part of the program Mr Vaile –- along with Federal and State ministers, heads of industry associations and other business leaders – will give presentations outlining Australian capability in a wide range of areas.

In Perth, members of Business Club Australia and international visitors can meet and conduct business in the Business Club Australia – Western Australian Headquarters on the 5th Floor 168, 170 St George’s Terrace.
