Expo showcasing jobs, business recovery

Posted: 10am 03 Aug 2020

Being part of the 2020 Recovery Moreton Bay Region Business and Jobs Expo has never been easier – or cheaper.

Moreton Bay Regional Council has made additional funds available to fully subsidise 30 stands, and partially subsidise 30 more, for businesses impacted by COVID-19. Council is also subsidising 20 Jobs Expo exhibits.

That means almost half the estimated 140-150 exhibitors at the expo, on October 29 in The Hope Centre, Rothwell, will have received help to get going and growing again.

“With the additional investment and support from Moreton Bay Regional Council, we’ve been able to offer fully and partially-subsidised stands at this year’s Moreton Bay Region Business & Jobs Expo for businesses under significant financial pressure,” Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism CEO Shane Newcombe says.

“This is a very positive initiative to get more owners and operators engaging and doing business with one another. Businesses will be able to apply for a subsidised stand from August 1–31.

“The expo’s expanded program will also feature more workshops and presentations, all aimed at assisting our region’s businesses in their COVID-19 recovery.”

Any business unable to secure a stand at the expo will still be welcome to attend and network. No-one will be turned away.

New focus for 2020

It’s the first time the Small Business Expo and Jobs Expo have been combined for an event, taking a positive outlook on business recovery, growth and getting people back into the workforce.

Businesses will have a chance to develop business leads and new customers, discover new ideas and technology, get advice, meet specialists and connect with service providers.

Those looking for jobs will have the chance to discover growth areas, meet business owners, see latest innovations, get advice and discover employment opportunities.

The expo will include the Innovation Precinct, delivered by Innovate Moreton Bay – a live panel presentation with special guest Queensland Chief Entrepreneur Leanne Kemp, as well as innovation workshops.

Industry professionals will do business presentations; there will be a Tina X Couch Panel Session with female leaders in business.
