For your diary: Huon Valley Business Expo

Do you run a business based in the Huon Valley? Looking for a way to make new contacts and promote your products and services?

The Huon Valley Business Enterprise Centre (BEC) is organising a small business expo to be held at the Huon Valley PCYC in Wilmot Road in Huonville on Saturday 13 October. As well as being an opportunity for local business people to meet each other, develop contacts and networks and reach potential new customers, it should be a fun and interesting day out for the rest of us.

In my brief couple of years living here I've met people from a huge variety of local businesses, from primary producers (goat breeders, orchardists), food producers (olive oil, wine, honey) to pet services, beauty therapy, automotive, accountants and lawyers, real estate agents, trade services, artists (like jewelry and glass designers), building and engineering companies. And of course our well known tourism and hospitality businesses.

Scott Dufty from the BEC reckons it's the first such event to be held in the Huon. More than 35 businesses have signed up already and Scott expects around 50 local businesses to be there showing what they have to offer. If you'd like to be involved, contact Scott on (03) 6264 3080 or email or keep up with the news on this Facebook page.
