Maroochy prepares for second major business networking event
Maroochy Council's Economic Development branch 'Business Maroochy' along with the Sunshine Coast Area Consultative Committee's Small Business Field Officers are set to host its second major business networking event Connect Maroochy on Tuesday, 20 June 2006.
Organisers are still enthused by the success of the first event held at the Innovation Centre in February that saw more than 450 people enjoy an evening of networking and promoting their varying local businesses.
Maroochy Mayor Joe Natoli said the inaugural event was the largest networking function ever held in Maroochy and possibly the entire Sunshine Coast.
"The success of this evening highlighted the need to bring together the businesses of Maroochy and surrounding regions, to do business, to make contacts and to open up the channels of communication for the future," Mayor Natoli said.
Economic Development Chair and Division Six Councillor Greg Fahey said the night will offer great networking and business opportunities as well as business card draws, and lucky door prizes.
"Everybody taking part will also take home a Business Maroochy show bag full of great giveaways from our sponsors," Cr Fahey said.
Hosted by Samille Muirhead from Zinc 96.1 and Nathan Dell from the Sunshine Coast Daily, Connect Maroochy will be held at the Nambour Civic Centre, Tuesday 20 June at 5.30pm.
Free workshops explaining how to make the most of the networking opportunities will also be conducted from 4.30pm.
