IT was straight down to business at the Tamworth Business Chamber State of the City event.
The crowd heard from University of New England vice-chancellor Brigid Heywood, Tamworth Regional Council mayor Col Murray and general manager Paul Bennett, followed by a live Q&A.
Business owners came prepared with tough questions about the previously proposed events levy, manufacturing opportunities in Tamworth, the possibility of a Brisbane 2032 Olympics and the airport.
Hosted by Tamworth Business Chamber, the event had one of the bigger turnouts since COVID-19 with all sectors of the business community in attendance.
Details of the next event, the State of the State address, are yet to be announced, but the chamber looks forward to its Business Summit on March 24 and 25.
