Business Promotion and Activation

Buy Local campaign

Now, more than ever, we need to support local businesses and stimulate Wollongong's economy. We're planning a Buy Local campaign to encourage everyone across our city to think about their buying habits, and put local businesses first.

We're aiming to launch the campaign in October 2021 to coincide with NSW Small Business Month.

Check back soon, we'll add more information about the campaign and how you can get involved when details are confirmed.

Wollongong Business Support Programs

We're partnering with Investible to bring you two free business support programs to help your business adapt, innovate and grow.

  • Primed to Thrive is available to all small businesses in the Wollongong Local Government Area. This 10-week online course empowers small business owners, giving them access to the tools, frameworks and strategies they need to remain competitive in today’s digital landscape.
  • Thrive is a 10-week virtual program for up to 20 Wollongong businesses with demonstrated grown potential who are committed to taking their business to the next level. Thrive participants will be supported to future-proof their business and explore new possibilities for expansion and innovation.

Registrations and applications for both programs close on 13 September 2021.

To find out more please visit Investible's website.

CBD Activation

When public health restrictions ease and more businesses and customers can return to the Wollongong CBD, we'll continue working to activate this precinct. Stay tuned for details.

You can also visit the Wollongong CBD website for updates. Businesses located within the Wollongong CBD can also request a free business or event listing on our website.
