We are very excited to have Radio 4EB as an event partner to assist with the promotion of the event to a wide multicultural audience in the Metropolitan and Logan regions. Radio 4EB is also contributing to the planning and will live broadcast from the event itself” – Michael Krafft, Assistant Manager, Regional Programs (Metropolitan Region)

The aim of the Queensland Multicultural Small Business Expo is to assist potential and current multicultural business owners to navigate the legislative requirements and taxation law obligations associated with running a small business in Australia. The Event will also equip small business owners with the knowledge, business contacts, linkages, and confidence to successfully establish and operate a business in Australia.

Including a rolling series of workshops/sessions on key topics such as marketing, finance, employing staff and more as well as an opportunity for business owners to access the Queensland Government ‘Mentoring for Growth’ program, there will also be information stalls where attendees can collect information on setting up and running a small business, ask individual questions and seek contact details from stall holders to follow up in the future.

A highlight of the event will be a live Q&A session led by Maree Adshead, The Queensland Small Business Commissioner alongside conversations with successful migrant business owners sharing their personal success stories and offering advice to aspiring entrepreneurs.
