The Lithgow District Chamber of Commerce is excited to be calling on all Lithgow region businesses and lifestyle, sporting, recreational and cultural services to be part of the biggest business event to ever be held in the Lithgow region!
This is the first business and lifestyle expo to be held in the region and the Chamber is proud to be able to give business and lifestyle organisations the opportunity to showcase their products and services at the Lithgow Region Business & Lifestyle Expo 2023.
The Expo is an opportunity for business owners and managers to come together, network, connect and create opportunities for collaboration. The Expo is also about increasing awareness of Lithgow regional products, services and lifestyle opportunities.
Chamber Vice-President and BLER funding program Director Steve Ring said, “The exhibition booth, furniture and promotions for the event, valued at $5,000 are being offered to Lithgow region businesses for a nominal cost of $100 to cover the cost of front display signage, which the Chamber wants to organise to keep Expo branding consistent”.
“This is a nominal cost given that the Chamber is planning a comprehensive marketing and
communications campaign targeting Greater Sydney and some Regional NSW areas to attract 3000 – 5000 visitors over the weekend of 6 – 7 May. Sydney metro and Regional NSW advertising placement is targeted and expensive, but the Chamber is rolling up its sleeves and doing a lot of work to promote and support products and services from and in the Lithgow region.”
Most Expos charge between $5,000-$10,000 per business display. This is a huge cost for individual micro, small and even medium businesses. That’s why the Chamber submitted a grant for the BLER funding in the first place, to assist and revive local Lithgow region businesses after fires, floods and Covid 19 lockdowns, so that they could promote themselves on a large-scale level, but not have to pay a large bill.”
“The Expo is the biggest of our revival projects”, he said.
“While the Black Rose Excellence in Business Awards were a successful celebration of our Lithgow region
businesses, the Expo will go one step further and celebrate and promote business as well as our sporting,
cultural, outdoor, educational, heritage and other aspects of Lithgow region’slifestyle to the outside world. The
Expo will be a microcosm of the entire community in the one place, for the world to see who and what we are,
and the unique products, services and lifestyles we have on offer”.
Businesses will need to have an office, shop front or home-based office at a Lithgow region address to be able
to participate in the Lithgow Region Business & Lifestyle Expo. Participating businesses and groups will need to
bring their products, brochures, and banners, as required for theirstall.
The Chamber anticipates that many businesses will come on board and is urging businesses to get in quickly
as there are only 100 exhibition booths available. Bookings close Friday 31 March.
The Chamber is also requesting all participating businesses to send the Chamber a contact list of 10
business associates they work with from the Greater Sydney and Regional NSW areas, so that the
Chamber can invite those businesses to the Expo over that weekend.
