About the Mercury Bay Business Association

New to business or thinking about setting up? Just moved to town and haven’t made contacts yet? Been around a while and wanting to make more contacts or want to have a more active role in the business community?

Then join the Mercury Bay Business Association and make a difference.

The Mercury Bay Business Association (MBBA) represents the business community across the Mercury Bay Area, all the way from the top of the Tairua Hill in the south, to Whangapoua in the north. The Association is made up of members from a variety of business sectors which include retail, accommodation, hospitality, tourism operators, trades and services.

The Mercury Bay Business Association owns the www.whitianga.co.nz website, which promotes the region and provides information on activities and attractions in and around Whitianga, Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand. The website offers advertising options for local businesses and is a key tool in promoting our area, showcasing all we have to offer in the area. It is visited by tens of thousands of people each year. 

We are however much more than just a website filled with business listings.

We have monthly Business After 5 networking events, member meetings, arrange business training seminars and workshops and send out regular communications keeping our business community connected.

As the Mercury Bay area grows, so do opportunities for commercial entities to start, develop and grow – bringing more residents, employment and visitors to our region. Mercury Bay has the opportunity to become THE PLACE to live, work and play on the Coromandel Peninsula.
