ABOUT THE EXPO
Creating a business platform for the busy owner that can only afford to take one-day out of their business to learn more, stay focused and leave inspired is our goal in creating the bigger picture for Western Sydney.
To meet the diverse needs of business leaders, we created the Western Sydney Small Business Expo – a hub for busy start-ups, micros and small businesses to get practical advice on ways to do business smarter in Western Sydney. Create conversations beyond everyday business interactions and foster relationships. Build a bridge for partnerships and innovative solutions with medium to large size businesses.
Join us in the heart of Parramatta and find out more about Australia’s fastest growing region!
As Sydney undergoes further development, Western Sydney continues to progress where Parramatta becomes part of the dual CBD, Badgery’s Creek forms Sydney’s second airport and the Australian government invests $2.9 billion over the next ten years into major infrastructure upgrades that will transform the region’s economy. With that in mind, Western Sydney business leaders have informed us they play multiple, critical roles in driving business performance, and they value the importance of celebrating and promoting diversity. This year’s theme is
PLAN – UNLOCK – DIVERSIFY
Plan – A better understanding on what we can do in our businesses to create long term goals for Western Sydney
Unlock – Open up the line of communication with different government bodies, community groups and offer better services while unlocking mutual opportunities
Diversify – Demonstrating respect for and showcasing the diversity of business owners assists in building stronger business relationships by providing practical advice and a platform to connect
