Monthly Networking Meetings

networking meetings.

Our networking meetings, held on the second Tuesday of every month, are a great opportunity for you to stay connected with local business owners and managers, and create opportunities for future collaboration. 


Over good food and good drinks you'll be able to form stronger relationships with your current customers, meet potential customers and suppliers, and establish a network of support services to create and maintain a dynamic business environment.

Our networking events are open to GCCI members and non-members, and we always welcome new guests.


Our GCCI Committee are available to ‘buddy up’ if you require assistance to navigate your first Networking Event.

the 2023 Best in
Business Awards.


The annual Best In Business Awards are a celebration of excellence in our community across businesses, large industry, not-for-profits, events, customer service and business leaders.

Gladstone Chamber of Commerce & Industry took over the coordination and delivery of the awards in 2020, and over the past three short years we have seen a huge growth in the awards’ popularity, evidenced by the 17,152 nominations received in 2022.

Our committee takes great pride in delivering our region’s premier business awards night – but it is so much more than that.

On the first Saturday in November, and in front of over 420 guests, we present 19 awards to celebrate the achievements and successes of organisations that help make the Gladstone Region a vibrant community in which to live, work and play.

None of this would be possible without the ongoing support of our sponsors:

Through our Professional Development Training Series, we have been able to secure 4 workshops over the course of 2024, that are tailored to the specific needs of our local businesses. With the support of the Gladstone Industry Leadership Group (GILG), we are now able to make these workshops even more accessible and effective.

We invite you to come join us and see how our workshops can help you grow your skills and further enhance your business for success.
