The BIGGEST Small Business Expo is coming to Brisbane

After running six successful Expos on the Gold Coast and Logan the 2018 Brisbane Small Business Expo is bringing local small business together on Friday 4th May to showcase their products and services.

It is particularly suited for home-based, micro, mobile and online businesses without shopfronts that are usually invisible in our communities but make up one third of our small business numbers. This is a genuine B2B marketplace platform that has never been held in Brisbane before but squarely kicks skills transfer and financial goals for every business owner involved.

“The Expo is built around conversations and learning rather than how swanky the trade booths are; it is grass roots selling by local businesses in the community where they live and work.”

“The Brisbane Expo will feature 200 small businesses from across Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan. There will be food trucks, live music, and five speaker presentations from some of the Australia’s leading business experts including Olympian, Steven Bradbury and Glen Richards from Network Ten’s popular Shark Tank Show.

Small businesses attending all five workshops will learn the latest business tips and industry insight to really bolster their business.  The Small Business Expo is free to attend.

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

We also provide How To Sell From a Trade Table workshops and teach everyone how to successfully engage, collect solid leads and convert to sales and make money to feed their families. The workshops have been run before every expo that has ever been held.

Date:Friday 4th May 2018
Time:Open from 10am to 4pm (Official Media and VIP Launch is at 9.45am)
Venue:Hibiscus Sports Complex
Address:90 Klumpp Road, Upper Mt Gravatt

 
We had 650+ small business owners attend the marketplace on what was a cracking sunny day.
With 125 Trade Tables, businesses spent the six hours talking to hundreds of small business owners.
