After months of preparation, the time had finally arrived….
Our stand was ready; our Bonfire collateral was ready, our team was ready…. it was time to take on the Telstra Your Business Expo!
Held at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre on 16th and 17th October, the expo attracted some of Perth’s leading business service providers (including our friends at Core IT and CenterWest), along with many businesses owners looking to expand their business.
The turnout was good, we spoke to many great businesses and one thing we took away from the event was that there is a strong sense of community among Perth SME providers.
The event included a number of different speakers and the highlight was Dr Marcus Tan from HealthEngine who discussed the opportunities of creating an edge for business through technology and the challenge of building a nationwide business from “remote” WA.
All the planning and hard work on creating our high-quality stand payed off. Just about everyone who visited mentioned how amazing it was and the it was quickly “labelled” the best across the expo. [Hat tip to Rene and his team]
We held a competition at our stand with the opportunity for attendees to win a new iPhone and the winner is…. [Drum roll, please….]
While Perth has been known in the past as the “mining boom” town, times have changed. It’s no secret that small and medium businesses are the driving force behind WA’s strong economic growth in recent years. There’s a very strong “entrepreneurship” culture in Perth (our owner is among them) which contributes to WA’s strong growing economy.
The Telstra Your Business Expo series wants to see this trend continue, so they have bought the expo to Perth. It provides an opportunity for business owners to engage with local experts, solution providers and fellow owners and operators of the WA business community.
And we will be there!
It’s a 2 day event featuring over 70 exhibitors from accountants to IT service providers and of course, Perth’s leading Digital Marketing agency, Bonfire. We will be there to help business operators to find the right Digital Marketing solution to improve, grow and develop their business in the evolving business landscape of WA.
Held in conjunction with the expo is a free seminar where expert keynote speakers will share their experience and knowledge of business in WA.
The Telstra Your Business Expo is on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th October at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Bonfire team will be there both days, so if you spot us, make sure to come say ‘hi’.
