b2b - Business to Ballarat is Commerce Ballarat's local media campaign aimed at encouraging local spending, it also has a strong focus on the business to business dollar.

Fact 51% of goods and services purchased by Ballarat businesses are sourced externally from Ballarat. Purchasing locally creates and retains local jobs. Reducing escape spending creates the opportunity to generate local jobs, leading to stimulation of our local economy.  Shopping locally is convenient - it’s easier to get to and take away what you buy, and if you develop an issue with your goods, they can be easily returned and replaced.


Join our b2b Gold sponsors Tanya Daniels The Good Guys, Wilson's Fruit & Vegetables, Crowe Horwath, RU Advertising, Sovereign Press and Mercedes-Benz Ballarat and Bronze sponsors Central Victorian Investments and Nashish Design in supporting local business. Help stop the $3.2 billion lost to the Ballarat economy in "leakage" each year. Give Ballarat businesses an opportunity and always try and buy local.
