Premier conference for trade associations

Chief Executives and Committee Members of trade and industry representative associations should consider attending the upcoming SEEANZ Conference. The 27th Small Enterprise Association of Australia and New Zealand are holding their annual conference in Sydney on the 17-18 July 2014. This is the premier small business conference in Australasia.

It brings together business owners, teachers in tertiary institutes and government officials to debate and decide on issues relevant and important for business development and small enterprise. It affords opportunities to network between delegates that can result in ongoing relationships with experience sharing as a direct benefit.

The conference will be attended by the Federal and NSW Ministers for small business and every State Commissioner responsible for Government programmes affecting small business.
