Internetrix will be exhibiting at the Illawarra Business Chamber's Business Expo again this year. The expo provides a great chance for business leaders in the Illawarra to network and learn about topical business issues.
The expo will be playing host to Ross Greenwood, the WIN/Channel Nine Network's Finance Editor and Presenter, who will be guest speaking at the IBC Business expo to help businesses weather the current financial situation.
"We will once again host workshops and seminars throughout the day aimed at assisting businesses with facing the challenges presented to them on a daily basis," the Business Chamber's CEO, Greg Fisher, wrote.
Internetrix's Managing Director, Geoff McQueen, who featured in a TV promotion for the event, will feature on a panel of past Illawarra Business of the Year award winners - including the heads of Peoplecare and Culinarius. The panel will provide advice to attendees on overcoming business challenges and growing successfully in difficult times.
"While this is the first major downturn our wider economy has seen in almost 20 years, I started Internetrix in the shadow of the 'dot com' crash," explains Mr. McQueen. "In a way, our industry has always done it fairly tough, and I'm more than happy to help others out if my experiences can be of value to them".
While the economy has been suffering, Internetrix has been moving ahead in leaps and bounds, hiring another 3 staff so far in 2009. "The internet is presenting really strong opportunities for businesses of all sizes and shapes to better reach their customers and market themselves," continued Mr McQueen, "so when it comes to helping people thrive in what are otherwise challenging circumstances, we're in a good place to help".
The IBC Business Expo will be held on Wednesday 27 May at the WIN Entertainment Centre, Wollongong, between 9am and 4:30pm. Internetrix is co-sponsoring the event and will be exhibiting at booth 4.
