About this Event

RECOVERY MORETON BAY REGION BUSINESS + JOBS EXPO

JOIN US TO GET LOCAL BUSINESS BACK ON ITS FEET

and MORE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY COVID 19

Brought to you by Moreton Bay Regional Council and MBRIT and Regional Development Australia with 10 local business industry groups and sponsors to help businesses get up and go and grow post Covid 19.

This expo is a managed business event and everyone is registered to attend thus creating a manageable track and trace environment.

It is a retail focused indoor marketplace listed on the Queensland Health Directions website. We have the same people flow as does a shopping centre but much better tracking and tracing.

We are committed to managing any restrictions that may be in place for the Expo – we have developed our Covid 19 risk 

We must work together to rebuild our local business community and get more people employed.

This event is the place to connect - promote - sell your products and services to local business owners.

To assist with the recovery of businesses and provide employment opportunities and up to date information.

Last year, we had 155 expo stands and 1000 local business professionals attended. The is BIG for small business and expect to increase our attendance this year -  Join us.
