Hosted at Capital Brewery, the first meeting to formalise the start of a new business group for Fyshwick was held on 23 July.
With over 1,000 businesses based in Fyshwick, representing the second-largest economy for Canberra yielding approximately $2.3 billion, the future direction of Fyshwick was considered important by Fyshwick community members.
Rob Evans from local online auctioning site Allbids wanted to create a group for Fyshwick to provide a centralised point for information, ideas and voice for the businesses that operate there.
“There was a very positive turnout for the event. It’s clear that there is an appetite for a collective Fyshwick group so that we can be a voice to help steer the growth and identity of Canberra’s dynamic industrial area,” said Rob.
