    Registrations open for Townsville Regional Roundtable

    Small businesses will have the opportunity to increase their networks and start conversations to help their business grow as Queensland Small Business Week brings its regional roundtable to Townsville on 29 May.

    Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said Queensland Small Business Week will shine a light on the growing number of small businesses in Townsville.

    “Each year, Queensland Small Business Week is host to a range of programs and activities to celebrate, connect and empower our more than 426,000 small businesses right across Queensland,” Mr Stewart said.

    Member for Mundingburra Coralee O’Rourke said the regional roundtables will be a key tool in helping local businesses to grow.

    “We are delighted to bring this key event during Queensland Small Business Week to Townsville,” Mrs O’Rourke said.

    “This will provide regional small business owners with the opportunities to learn and network with other small business owners to help them grow and create more local jobs”

    Member for Thuringowa Aaron Harper said these events will open doors for businesses to share ideas to help them to succeed.

    “Networking provides local business owners with the opportunity to share and collaborate, enhancing their business strategies and can assist them to tap into new markets.”

    Minister for Employment and Small Business Shannon Fentiman said Queensland Small Business Week continues to be an important celebration of Queensland’s diverse small businesses.

    “Last year more than 6,000 people took part in the week long, state-wide event that showcased Queensland’s small businesses,” Ms Fentiman said.

    “I encourage any Queensland small business owner wanting to take their business to the next level to take part in our celebration and register to attend an event in their region during Queensland Small Business Week 2018.”

    In addition to the regional roundtable, a wide range of events are being held right across Queensland during Queensland Small Business Week 2018.
