Small Business Festival 2018

Small Business Festival is an annual curated events program across metropolitan and regional Victoria, providing ideas, information and networking opportunities to start, operate and grow a business.

Presented by Small Business Victoria, the Festival has drawn hundreds of thousands of small business owners and managers over more than a decade, and provided small businesses with the opportunity to exchange ideas, access free or low-cost information and support and establish valuable professional networks.

The Festival offers a wide range of practical, interactive and innovative events that cover topics such as business planning, marketing, social media, networking and financial management.

All events are presented at low cost or free, and are designed to help small business owners improve their productivity and offers opportunities to learn from, network, and engage with other like-minded businesses and industry experts.
