The meeting, co-ordinated by Southland deputy mayor Ebel Kremer, will be open to the public, as well as businesses owners, and Southland Chamber of Commerce representatives will also attend.
"A number of businesses thought it would be a good idea to have a business association in Te Anau, just to provide some support for each other," Cr Kremer said.
There had been talk of one for a while.
The meeting was to determine interest in forming an association, and what its focus might be, he said.
"I’m sure it will be supporting each other through difficult times."
It would also provide an opportunity for networking and developing ideas to attract domestic tourism, he said.
Training was a possibility, as was advice from the chamber of commerce.
The meeting is being held tomorrow, in the upstairs bar of the Distinction Luxmore Hotel in Te Anau, starting at 7pm.
