We’ve launched another campaign to support local business and spread the message that Brimbank is open for business.
Our We Are Brimbank and We are Open for Business campaign showcases a range of diverse businesses around the municipality, a taste of the City’s unique offering.
The campaign includes a series of heart-warming video stories from companies like Kontiki Cultural Women Empowerment Inc., Overnewton Castle, Luus Industries, Saint Side and Watergardens Town Centre.
The campaign also features some loved and unique local businesses such as the Village Gem and Senserrick’s Fruit & Flowers.
Watch all of our campaign videos here.
Council thanks all the businesses who took part in the campaign development.
The videos are being promoted via social media and cinema advertising with postcards and posters also available.
Our message is that Brimbank welcomes entrepreneurs, start-ups and businesses with bold ambitions. And of course, that Brimbank offers a wide range of exciting and top quality products and experiences to enjoy.
We hope this campaign encourages our community to support their local businesses and spend locally, whether it is for food, home, entertainment or Christmas gifts in the holiday season.
This campaign follows an earlier Welcome. We Are Brimbank campaign that shared our pride in where we live, and showed what a wonderful, diverse, vibrant and welcoming City Brimbank is.
Continued support for local business
The new We Are Brimbank and We are Open for Business campaign is part of the strong support Council is providing local business, especially through the COVID-19 recovery phase.
From the start of the pandemic, Council has been quick to act to help support local businesses as they suffer though the worst economic shock in our times.
Council has offered rates relief, COVID-19 support services and business grants. Council also established a COVID-19 Brimbank Response and Recovery Business Taskforce that helps identify local business advocacy priorities, and provides a Business Support and Assistance Information and Resources section on its website.
As restrictions start to ease, we’re determined to help our local traders recover as quickly as possible, and we’re asking the community to show their support and think, shop, buy – and dine – local.
Resources for local business
The posters and postcards on the local businesses featured in the We are Brimbank and We are Open for Business campaign are available to download in a number of languages.
More about our We Are Brimbank campaign
A couple of years ago we launched a campaign to tell the world how wonderful our city is. Our Welcome. We Are Brimbank campaign is designed to strengthen Brimbank's community pride and highlight our welcoming community.
We Are Brimbank showcases all the amazing aspects of Brimbank’s diverse communities to the Western Region and Melbourne.
We're working hard to spread the word about local people, local businesses, local community work, and the new and emerging opportunities for growth and investment in the area.
We want to show people just how much Brimbank has to offer. Whether it’s our wide range of different cuisines, enjoying new and different forms of entertainment, or educating our young people.
We're committed to supporting Brimbank’s growth and development. We’re keen to share with others all the opportunities available. Whether it’s buying property, investing in business or just spending time with us, we're open and everyone’s welcome.
