Business essentials: invaluable insights for SMEs

As we move into a new decade, success in business has never been more reliant on reinvention. From innovative companies with targeted strategies for growth and development to savvy startups changing the game with unprecedented tech, the way we do business is changing. Fast. So how can small businesses adapt to market changes, predict industry trends, stay up-to-date on government regulations and utilise the latest digital offerings when time is short, finances are tight, and resources are limited?

One event, countless connections and resources

A highly-anticipated component of the fifth annual B2B EXPO, the free-to-attend Business Essentials Seminar Series addresses key challenges and provides solutions to critical issues that affect small-to-medium enterprises. The seminar series will focus on trends and topics that are pivotal to success in 2020 and beyond – from digital disruption, cyber security and small business funding to the changing financial landscape, the digital economy, and SME growth and development in domestic and global markets.

Gain knowledge for growth from industry experts

Taking place across two days from March 18-19, the Business Essentials Seminar Series features speakers from a diverse range of industries from both the public and private sectors, including high-profile government representatives, digital marketing experts, self-made entrepreneurs and economic researchers.

These business experts and thought leaders will share their invaluable insights and knowledge with the aim to connect small business professionals with the products, services, tools and networks they need to grow their profits, scale their businesses, reach new markets, and secure vital funding in 2020.
