The Illawarra Business Chamber is hosting a virtual briefing session in September on how businesses can benefit from the UCI World Cycling Championships in exactly two years.
When Wollongong hosts the eight day international cycling event it is expected to deliver $94 million into the Illawarra economy, attract 400,000 spectators and 300 million broadcast viewers. The chamber knows that will provide many opportunities for local businesses from procurement and supply contracts, food services and accommodation, tourism and other enterprising opportunities.
The briefing will be conducted via Zoom from 9am on September 4 and involve representatives from Wollongong 2022 and Destination Wollongong who will provide an update on preparations. They will also discuss how businesses can begin to prepare for and leverage what the chamber is describing as a massive opportunity for Wollongong as a city and the Illawarra as a region.
Illawarra Business Chamber executive director Adam Zarth will moderate the discussion which will include Wollongong 2022 Organising Committee chair Dean Dalla Valle, 2022 World Road Cycling Championship chief executive Stu Taggart and Destination Wollongong general manager Mark Sleigh.
