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

Join us from April to May 2024 for 8 exciting and FREE community events that bring together local businesses, subject matter experts, and service providers to collaborate and showcase their ventures.

At the MySmallBiz Expos, you can expect a jam-packed day of engaging activities, including cultural experiences that celebrate our diverse local community. You’ll also have the chance to participate in Q&A sessions and presentations with ETC, Self-Employment Ambassadors, and Subject Matter Experts, where you can gain valuable insights and advice!

But that’s not all – our expos are all about networking and creating meaningful connections. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and mingle with other entrepreneurs, small business owners, and industry professionals, building relationships that could lead to new opportunities and collaborations.

And of course, we’ll have an array of expo stalls that showcase the best of our local businesses and services. From Self-Employment Ambassadors who can share their success stories, Subject Matter Experts, representatives from Local and State Government, and many more! You’ll have access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help you on your entrepreneurial journey.

Not an entrepreneur? That’s okay! By attending you will be supporting small businesses in your community. Those that attend will give small business stall holders the opportunity to showcase their products and services and let them practice their elevator-pitch on you. This event is all about learning and encouraging people to show their support for the businesses that will be exhibiting at the expo.

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