The Tasmanian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (TACC) has served the automotive industry in Tasmania since 1928.

There had always been a long standing and mutually supportive relationship between TACC and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (VACC).

TACC successfully lobbied state government on behalf of members for many years, but times were changing and in 1999 TACC and VACC were amalgamated. This merger offered members a more diverse range of services, while still maintaining a Tasmanian perspective on local issues.

Today we are dedicated to the promotion, representation and preservation of member businesses to local, state and federal governments, as well as the media, consumers and the community.

Coronavirus: VACC on TV

1 May 2020

As part of its community awareness campaign, Auto is open, the Chamber is reaching out to motorists across Victoria and Tasmania with a television advertisement featuring member businesses.

The Auto is open initiative includes a five-week TV advertising campaign across Channel 10, Channel 9, Channel 7 (and their digital stations), along with regional channels, reaching 100 percent of the available audience. 

Other Auto is open campaign elements include:

Launched in response to motorist confusion and member frustration in regard to government restrictions and industry, the initiative makes automotive's position clear to motorists. While the Chamber supports all measures put in place to protect Australians, it has proved necessary for the automotive industry to make it clear that they are open for business.
