World SME Day - Celebrating Regional Manufacturing Transformations

Advantage SME and UOW's Southern Manufacturing Innovation Group will be marking World SME Day (Small & Medium-Sized Enterprise Day) on 27 June with a celebration of SME manufacturing transformations from the Illawarra, Hunter and Geelong. Come along to the event to celebrate World SME Day and learn from other regional manufacturers who have adapted for the future.

World SME Day is dedicated to all SMEs who are undeniably the growth engine for businesses all around the world. This event will bring greater awareness of the immense contributions of SMEs to the regional manufacturing sector.

The event will showcase three success stories, followed by a panel discussion facilitated by Katrina Skellern.
