Who wants to go to the Women in Business Expo?

I’m so excited to be participating in the Pine Rivers Women in Business Expo later this month, on October 14th.

One thing that can be frustrating for small business operators is the exorbitant cost to exhibit at many (ie most!) business/trade expos. Let’s face it, while expos can be a fantastic way of meeting people, promoting our products and services, offering samples and getting our message out there, it’s very difficult for most small businesses to compete with the national corporations when the cost to display is $1,000 – $5,000!

This expo that my business is participating in, the Pine Rivers Women in Business Expo , is subsidised by Pine Rivers Zonta Club (an international service organisation working to advance the state of women) to make it affordable for women in business within the Pine Rivers Shire (Queensland).

What a great idea! I’d love to see more organisations get behind small businesses and offer something similar.

Do you know of anything similar in your local area? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
