Our survey sheets from our other Small Business Expos say it all “Just Do IT”.

“The Expo is built around conversations and learning rather than swanky expensive exhibition stands – it is grass roots selling by local businesses in the community where they live and work.”

CELEBRATING BEING SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS

There are food trucks, live music to celebrate being small business owners – so join in the fun and do business at the same time.

Including six Soapbox Speaker Presentations from some of the Australia’s leading business experts.

Expos are typically boring, disengaged events but we make ours fun – it is a real celebration that recognises the hard work that small business owners do every single day.
