SCBC offers a range of sponsorship opportunities for businesses seeking to partner with the region’s leading business and industry advocacy group.   Support from sponsors is vital to ensuring the SCBC continues to present a unified voice to advocate for business in the political arena and in the market place.

We work closely with sponsors to find innovative ways for each to capitalise on their sponsorship by tailoring programs to suit their needs.  As the leading advocate for business on the Coast, SCBC offers key industry groups and businesses the opportunity to position their brand with an organisation that is acknowledged for:

  • its regional research
  • its intent on building a strong and diversified economy
  • being proactive in leading debate and discussion on the vision and future of the economy
  • being the only regional business group that has regular direct access to the Premier of Queensland to communicate the message on the health of the economy and business in the region.

We offer four categories of sponsorships:
