Over 40 small businesses participated in Yarra Ranges Council’s first Small Business Expo held at Skyhigh on Wednesday 29, March.

This was the first year the event had been held by Council with the event focusing on facilitating networking opportunities for local small business operators, as well as showcasing local products and services to the community.

“This event was really exciting and great to meet new people and businesses and see the community in one room. There was no competition, it was all collaboration,” said Yarra Ranges Council Mayor, Jim Child.

Businesses sold a variety of items such as candles, clothing and accessories, and other small businesses held workshops to promote their services and provide and offer advice and support about starting a small business.

Kapi Art Space Managing director, Heather Bradbury said it was a great event and opened the door to connecting with other business.

“We have a business not far from SkyHigh so it’s really great to have an event like this where we can connect with people across the hills and swap our business information and what we offer.”

Because we offer trauma support through painting classes and workshops, i’ve made some connections with other businesses and people today where we can cross pollinate and better help people in the local area.”
