Small business owners can now register for the one-on-one ‘speed networking’ sessions designed to help small business connect with large buyers from the public and private sector. 

The council has extended the invitation to all small and family businesses as part of Small Business Month. 

The event, on Tuesday, May 2, at Cairns Regional Council, gives local business owners a chance to identify tender opportunities, grow their network and increase business exposure. 

Cairns Mayor Bob Manning said the event would help small businesses put themselves in front of large buyers. 

“We have an impressive lineup of large organisations that are looking for opportunities to spend their money at our small businesses,” he said. 

“Cairns has more than 13,800 registered small businesses which support jobs and help our local economy prosper.” 

Small and family businesses are invited to register for the free event. Spaces are limited. RSVP by today. Go to:
