The first Sunbury Business Expo, to be held on Wednesday, October 24th, has been organised by the Sunbury Business Association.
The aim of the Expo is for small business owners (and employees) to revitalise their approach, provide a place to seek assistance and, ultimately, find more customers.
The structure of the Expo allows people to network, talk to exhibitors and to attend short speakers workshops, allowing them to pick what suits them.
If you need to get your business in front of other businesses, you need to book a stand. Exhibition spaces are limited. Sponsorship packages are also available.
