Get involved in Queensland Small Business Week!
Did you know that in Queensland, more than 97% of businesses are small businesses, and that they make up 44% of all jobs in Queensland?
It is important to recognise the valuable contribution that small businesses make to our communities, so get involved in Queensland Small Business Week (QSBW) 2019 and register to host an event during 27–31 May.
With more than 438,000 small businesses in Queensland, the week is a celebration of the state’s small businesses and provides owners and managers with the opportunity to connect with other businesses, government and industry, and to learn new skills to help their business succeed.
Last year, 175 events and activities were held across the state, with 92.5% of participants agreeing that the events were helpful for their business.
Event hosts receive an events listing on the Business Queensland website, marketing and promotional support from the department, access to an event host community group and supporting guides and templates. There is no limit to what your event or activity could be – we are open to conferences, seminars, workshops, webinars, podcasts, networking and professional development activities.
Queensland small business owners wanting to take their business to the next level are encouraged to take part in the celebrations and to register an event during QSBW 2019.
