Geelong has a lot to offer in the way of small businesses, with creative, innovative and motivated minds aplenty. After their debut appearance in 2016 and successful follow up last year, the Geelong Small Business Expo is back next month, giving small businesses the opportunity to network and connect with like-minded entrepreneurs.
As part of this years Pivot City Geelong Business Expo 2018 this year, the team have made an exciting addition with The Food & Wine Enclosure, brought to you by Elderberry Event Hire, showcasing some of the best wines, food, pastries and cakes from around Geelong, the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula.

In the enclosure you will hang out to some sweet tunes, ease into some live music, snap away in their photo booth and kick back with friends and Geelongs finest cosying up on a Saturday afternoon. You couldn’t ask for a better way to spent a Saturday in winter if you tried.
While you’re there, don’t be afraid to venture outside the enclosure with all of the wonderful businesses in Geelong on display at the expo, and explore the room busting with businesses. You’ll find a crafty market where you can stock up on gifts and goodies, you can get down to business in the networking lounge, undergo a health check or some yoga in the Wellness Pop-Up, check out the Festival hosts at the Greater City of Geelong Arena or stay tuned for the genU Fashion Show hitting the runway at 2pm.
