Benefits of AustCham Membership
The Hong Kong and Macau-based Chamber is the largest Australian business community, outside of Australia, and is the second largest of some 27 International Chambers of Commerce in Hong Kong. Membership of AustCham Hong Kong and Macau offers the following benefits:
The Chamber has a charter to represent and promote the interests of Australian business in the region which it pursues through business to government relations with the Hong Kong and Australian governments, leading policy insititutions, and individuals.
The Chamber stages, on average, two events each week to provide members the forum for meeting new contacts, potential clients and suppliers – to open up business opportunities. Members receive preferential access and prices to these activities.
Regular seminars, panel discussions, and professional development talks are co-ordinated by the Chamber to enable members to meet their peers and increase their knowledge of sector interests.
The Chamber’s Committee network opens up a new level of business engagement with key decision-makers and business leaders. The Committees are open to all members but only those who attend gain access to the private briefings and events organised at this level.
Members generally pay 50% less than non-members to all Chamber events, from 25 person professional development seminars to 450 person business luncheons.
The Chamber uses its network and contacts to offer business matching services. Member companies can access this service at 50% less than the public fee.
Members can engage the Chamber’s very cost-effective external event management services which provides all logistical support for the staging of an event or seminar for your company, in Hong Kong or Macau, at 20% less than the public fee.
Members pay 20% less on all Chamber advertising channels (reaching a database of about 6000 individuals) through the monthly austcham news, M2M e-flyer communciation, website and iphone app advertising. Only member profiles are listed in the annual Australian Business in Hong Kong and Macau Directory.
Qantas offers AustCham members ongoing excess baggage and Lounge entry (depending on member category) benefits and, each month, one significant discount to the value of 20% is offered to all members through the membership e-card.
