Coogee Chamber Coffee Networking

The mission of the Coogee Chamber of Commerce is connection, support and learning for business people in Coogee and surrounds. You won’t see large-scale public events from this management crew! Lock these networking events in your diary, make new connections, learn from others and make Coogee great again.

    BXB: Business by the Beach

    On the first Tuesday of every month, 7:30am to 9am
    Coogee Pavilion, Ground Floor, 169 Dolphin Street

    Except November which is Melbourne Cub day
    so we meet on the first Thursday in November. Giddy up!

    Meet with fellow Business Coogee members for a monthly shot of caffeinated connection. The first 20 members to walk in the door receive a complementary coffee from our friends at Merivale.

    Bring your business cards or QR codes.
