23 April 2018

After the great success of last year’s event, The 2018 Small Business Expo comes back to South Gold Coast on 7th of September with a bigger and better format aiming for 150 Trade Tables – that’s twice the size of a Westfield Shopping Centre.

In a one day only event, over 700 businesses owners across Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan will showcase their products, services and create solid business leads.

One-third of small businesses in Queensland don’t operate from a shopfront, making the 2018 South Gold Coast Small Business Expo vital for home-based, micro, mobile and online businesses owners looking to promote their business and network with likeminded owners.

Small Business Expo 2018 event organiser Paula Brand said the expo is a collaborative B2B marketplace that will generate over $1.8 million in solid sales leads for small business owners.

“Small businesses attending the workshops will also learn the latest business tips and industry insight to really bolster their business,” said Ms Brand.

“The day also provides people with the opportunity to come together and network in a relaxed manner so there will be food trucks, live music and chill out zones for all to enjoy.

“Our events are known to be a celebration of business and this year will be no different as we unite to acknowledge all the hard work that is done on a daily basis.”

The expo provides one of Australia’s most unique marketplaces for small business, connecting business owners with potential customers and providing them with information and informative presentations relevant to running and sustaining a successful company.

Acknowledging the important role of technology in small business, this years’ event will include a Technology Hub showcasing the very latest in technologies, software and hardware available.

Bartercard National Sponsorship Manager Lisa Lees said the Small Business Expo 2018 provides a vital support and service to small businesses in the Queensland region.

“The nature of small business is unique and business owners need to connect with other business owners to not only share their knowledge but offer their support,” said Ms Lees.

“Bartercard is proud to support an expo that helps to grow as many small businesses as possible.”

Small Business Expo 2018 is sponsored by Bartercard Australia, Red Energy, Brisbane West Chamber of Commerce, Bendigo Bank, Newhaven Funerals, Cornerstone Law Offices, Be Local Today, Concept Designs, Key Business Network, Women’s Network Australia and Brisbane City Council.
