Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Perera

The Kar­ratha City shopfront of newly re­branded busi­ness Ev­ery­where Travel and Cruise was the site of the first Busi­ness Af­ter Hours event of 2016 for the Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try.

The event had a big turnout with more than 100 pro­fes­sion­als in at­ten­dance and had a fo­cus on strength­en­ing lo­cal busi­ness ties.

Ev­ery­where Travel, for­merly called Hel­loworld North West, and the Kar­ratha Kats Foot­ball and Sport­ing Club co-hosted the net­work­ing evening.

KDCCI pres­i­dent John Lally gave the open­ing ad­dress and said col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween lo­cal busi­nesses was key to boost­ing the area’s econ­omy.

Ev­ery­where Travel owner Cassie Perry said her com­pany had been sure to do that dur­ing its re­brand­ing.

“We are proud to have used tal­ented lo­cal busi­nesses to help with the de­sign and in­stal­la­tion of our new store brand­ing,” she said.

“It’s all about stick­ing to­gether and help­ing each other to get through th­ese times.”

Each of the host com­pa­nies spon­sored prizes and Amanda Ewin and Gavin Can­ning were the lucky win­ners on the night.
