Next meeting on tourism potential of Wynnum
Depending on when you read this you may still have time to come along to the next Wynnum Business BIT(e) – which stands for Business Information Technology (eat) – meeting this Monday morning (19th June) from 7am-8.15am at Wynnum Business member Monty’s Place in Glenora Street. Local tourism expert (and Wynnum Business member) Kevin Liepins will be leading a short discussion on tourism opportunities for the Wynnum/Manly area as highlighted in a meeting organised by local State MP Joan Pease on tourism a few weeks ago. If you’d like to come along, you can book in here…

The Property Industry Foundation held its annual regatta in Wynnum Manly recently, inviting the who’s who of the property development industry in SE Queensland to its annual yachting event in Waterloo Bay. The event showcases our waterfront precinct and point of difference – “Brisbane’s Seaside”! Recognition of our unique and splendid environment is becoming more widespread, and the perceived inner city oversupply of apartments is inspiring some developers to the urban edge, ultimately providing more residential opportunites and retail enhancement.
End of Financial Year is fast approaching and accountant Derek Miles of Wynnum Business member Financial Milestones advises talking to your accountant now to do some tax planning before 30th June – making sure you claim all deductions is only part of the job (and remember, membership of a business group or association like Wynnum Business is a tax deduction!).
