Introducing ETC’s MySmallBiz Expo, the ultimate small business event promoting self-employment and small business in your local communities across QLD & NSW!

Join us from April to June 2024 for 8 FREE community events designed for small businesses, self-employed individuals, and those aspiring to start their own ventures. These events, known as the MySmallBiz Expos, are also perfect for anyone looking to support local small businesses.

At the MySmallBiz Expos, you’ll experience a day filled with engaging activities, that highlight our diverse local community. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions and presentations with various experts from ETC’s Business team, Self-Employment Ambassadors, and Subject Matter Experts, where you can gain valuable insights and advice tailored to small businesses and self-employment!

But that’s not all – these expos are all about networking and fostering meaningful connections. You’ll get the chance to meet and interact with other small business owners and industry professionals, building relationships that could open up new opportunities and collaborations.

You’ll find many stalls from local businesses and services at the expo. You’ll hear success stories from Self-Employment Ambassadors, get advice from experts, and meet government representatives. It’s a great place to learn for your business journey.

Not an entrepreneur? That’s perfectly fine! By attending, you’ll be supporting small businesses in your community. Attendees will allow small business stall holders to showcase their products and services and practice their elevator pitches. This event is about learning and encouraging people to support the businesses exhibiting at the expo.

So mark your calendars for the MySmallBiz Expos, and join us in promoting self-employment, small business and entrepreneurship in our local communities!
