The 8 key goals for each Small Business Expo
Promotion – to provide opportunities for small businesses and government officials to engage with the small business community. Once a year we host a pop-up event for invisible businesses (homebased, micro, mobile and online) to showcase products and services and connect with the media. We also invite all levels of government to the official opening of each Expo, so they can engage with the small business community.
Collaboration – with key industry stakeholders to build Expos through shared promotional actions. Together we reach 30,000 small business owners in each region – with a total reach across 5 Expos to 150,000 small business owners.
Growth – to ensure each Expo can deliver $2 million in solid leads for our small businesses. We aim to host an Expo in each region for a period of five years to provide a highly anticipated annual calendar event.
Information – to connect small business owners with the latest products and services from all levels of Government in a face to face format and to undertake activities to ensure they are up to date with compliance, new funding, digital audits and new legislation.
Skills Transfer – to deliver Pre-Expo workshops before each Expo to provide small businesses with the marketing and operational skills they need to grow and develop.
Charity – to promote five charities per Expo so they can build connections with the small business community and fundraise for their unique causes.
Celebration – of B2B marketplaces and the small business community. We provide a festive atmosphere with live music and food trucks, so attendees can celebrate the hard work of small businesses each year.
Platform – to provide a cost-effective opportunity for all small business owners, from North Brisbane to Tweed, to promote their goods and services to other businesses and potential customers.
