Collaborative relationship-focused marketplaces producing financial outcomes for local business owners
Business & Jobs Expos is dedicated to building & strengthening local business communities through B2B marketplaces for micro & local business owners across South East Queensland, where they can grow their networks, learn, access support and increase their sales opportunities.
At the Business & Jobs Expos, we want to see all our exhibitors succeed and benefit from their investment. That’s why we invite every potential Exhibitor to attend our ‘How to Maximise Expo Results’ workshop – a one hour intensive Zoom session designed to explode our Exhibitor’s results!
Business & Jobs Expos is passionate about local businesses connecting and making new sales leads, as well as selling products and services at each expo we hold. Our Expos are all about economic outcomes, employment outcomes and educational/learning outcomes, as well as building collaboration and hope across the business community.
Our 2023 Business and Jobs Expos are the only sales-focused business events running in South East Queensland this year. They are considered Retail Indoor Marketplaces by Qld Health and are your opportunity to Network, Connect, Showcase and Sell!

Promotion — to provide opportunities for businesses and government officials to engage with the local business community. Once a year, we host a pop-up event for invisible businesses (primarily home-based, micro, mobile and online) to showcase products and services and connect to generate sales leads, new partnerships, wider connections.
Collaboration – with 60 key industry stakeholders to build Expos through shared promotional actions. Together, we reach around 30,000 business owners in each region – with a total reach across 6 Expos to 150,000 business owners.
Growth – to ensure each Expo can deliver $1- $2 million in solid sales leads for the local business community. We aim to host an Expo in each region for a period of five years to provide a highly anticipated annual calendar event.
Information – to connect small business owners with the latest products and services from all levels of Government in a face to face format and to undertake activities to ensure they are up to date with compliance, new funding, digital audits, and new legislation.
Skills Transfer – to deliver Pre-Expo workshops before each Expo to provide businesses with the marketing and operational skills they need to grow and develop.
Charity – where possible, we try to work with local charities so they can connect with businesses — this can be food trucks, donations for expo builds, or part-funded stands.
Celebration – of B2B marketplaces and the small business community. We provide a festive atmosphere as who wants to go to a boring expo — the expos provide a platform that helps connect businesses easily between 6,000 to 8,000 businesses in a time-efficient and cost-effective way. We acknowledge the hard work that business does and it is our aim to provide fun, information, and inspiring events where bigger and better business can be done.
