At the biannual Business Breakfasts, you will hear about upcoming opportunities and events, and can participate in open discussions. Open to all retail and hospitality businesses within the City of Melbourne municipality, the biannual Business Breakfasts provide an opportunity to connect and engage with the broader business community and City of Melbourne.

The first business breakfast will focus on Melbourne's future economy, with speakers including:

  • Chris Sanderson, co-founder of global trend forecasters, The Future Laboratory
  • Dave Roper, proud Melburnian, innovator, marketer, entrepreneur and creator of Crumpler.
After the talks, we will have a facilitated discussion focusing on your big ideas for Melbourne's future. Your ideas will feed into the development of Future Melbourne 2026, the city’s plan on how to ensure we remain a prosperous, resilient and liveable city over the coming decade.
