Copies of the Karratha Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s 2018-19 Business and Community Directory has been unveiled and are set to hit local streets in coming weeks.

The local business guide, which is compiled each year by the Karratha and Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was launched at a KDCCI business networking event last Wednesday by City of Karratha deputy mayor Grant Cucel.

The directory is available in both print and digital formats.

KDCCI chief executive Kylah Morrison said the print directory was still well-used despite a lot of businesses moving their advertising online.

“There is the mentality that a lot of marketing and advertising has gone digital but we know that a lot of businesses still reach for the directory,” she said.

“The value of the directory is that it is an up-to-date list of local businesses within that year.”

“Our staff believe print is still as valuable as digital and you need to be across all platforms.”

The directory will be delivered to homes and businesses across the City area over the next few weeks, and copies will also be available to pick up at the KDCCI and City of Karratha offices.

Its bright yellow cover is a tribute to community legend and former KDCCI chief executive John Lally.

“John’s obviously been a real pillar of our local community, both in the business and the wider community,” she said.

“He’s been responsible for some really big milestones and he’s really been a real advocate and champion for diversification and strengthening business in the Pilbara, so we wanted to say thanks.”

The directory can be accessed in digital format by visiting kdcci.asn.au.
