Claim your seat at the table

Innovative business owners are invited to claim their seat at the table for the 2016 Central West Business Summit in Parkes on June 7.

The Summit has proven a pivotal forum for networking and information sharing along with being a unique platform for uniting Central West Business leaders.

The event is again hosted by Adloyalty, with Major Partners including Regional Development Australia Central West, the Business Enterprise Centre Central NSW, Yates Baker McLean, and AusIndustry.

The keynote speaker for this year will be James O’Loghlan from ABC TV’s ‘The New Inventors’. James will be speaking on a topic close to his heart – innovation. Key themes for this year include inspiring innovation and digital integration in agribusiness, logistics and engineering.

The Summit provides access to renowned business experts and speakers, provides Central West businesses with the ability to network with complementary businesses and potential clients.

In 2015 (the inaugural year), the event saw a total of 158 attendees, representing 93 individual businesses across 17 industry sectors.

The concept grew out of an initial idea to bring prevalent regional business issues together. Event organisers work with businesses throughout the Central West to execute business strategies that set solid foundations for sustainable growth.

With shared issues and pressure points for the region’s businesses uncovered, challenges can be collectively addressed to develop confident businesses that achieve growth targets, employ more people and therefore contribute to the economic vibrancy of our communities. 

The one-day event will include keynote speakers, panel discussions, a business exhibition and the highly popular breakout sessions all held at the Parkes Services Club.

There are currently opportunities available for businesses wanting to be involved in this exciting event to increase their profile. Businesses can showcase their skills and expertise by hosting a breakout session, exhibition space or website promotion.
