BBN Small Business Expo 2019

The Annual Blacktown Business Network Small Business Expo is happening at Blacktown Workers Club:

Wednesday 6 March 2019 5pm - 8pm (4pm bump-in for stallholders)


We'd love to see you at the Blacktown Business Network Small Business Expo 2019. Join our amazing stallholders and find out about what your local small businesses are up to. You may find people to connect with, do business with, gain new ideas ... the opportunities are endless. Last year we had over 30 tables, and although visitor traffic wasn't too high, a number of the stallholders reported generating some great leads and gaining new customers.


You can find the details of the event here:
On our Facebook Page:
Please obtain a ticket from Sticky Tickets. Note tables are almost SOLD OUT. Attendee tickets are free. We ask you book a ticket if you're attending to help us with catering (yes there are free light refreshments for all).


Please 'bump-in' aka set-up between 4pm and 5pm, ready for the general public to arrive at 5pm. The event will be officially opened at 5.30pm.
Remember this is your event too! Please make sure you promote the expo to your own clients using your social media channels, email lists etc, even add an event post on Google My Business. Those who show evidence of marketing will be added to the stallholder list below (will remain listed under past events), including a website backlink - helpful for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). Please provide a small square image (logo or photo), plus a short summary and your name and business name to blacktownbusiness at gmail.com.
