Celebrate Small - King Island Small Business Month 2021

The King Island Regional Development Organisation is, a small not for profit organisation on King Island.  We work with businesses, community organisations and the community as a whole to help King Island thrive. The remoteness of King Island means that it is not easy for business owners to step away from their business to work on their business or access professionals to help them grow or evolve. The businesses on King Island have also taken a big hit with COVID border restrictions causing even less access to customers and more reliance on virtual help.

We are hoping that having a whole month of events will reinvigorate people and boost their morale and realise they are not alone and to recognise the opportunities they have to reach new markets and new customers.

Small business month will run from 1st October to 31st October 2021, holding a few in person events each week and a couple of virtual events each week. The theme is celebrate small, as we want this to be a chance for small businesses to recognise their achievements and their perseverance through the tough times, particularly in the last 2 years.

We welcome anyone to participate and we would love to have people use this as a chance to visit King Island too (subject to border restrictions of course).

We will be releasing details of events over the next few weeks, via this page, on youtube and via social media and email, so you can sign up below to get email updates and be the first to get tickets to the events.

Here is the current event schedule which includes links to reserve your spots in webinars and in person events.
