Friday, 7 June 2019

The City of Greater Geelong Economic Development 2018 Review is now available.

The review outlines the Economic Development team’s activities and achievements across the year, identifying record attendance at Small Business Festival events, and the festival’s sell-out opening night featuring Ita Buttrose, as major highlights.

Sector development activities are summarised in the review and demonstrate the Economic Development team’s collaborative approach, with the team leading industry and stakeholder partnerships across diverse projects such as the G21 Sustainable Agribusiness Strategy, the Regional Industry Sector Employment Program addressing skill shortages in the building industry, and the UNESCO City of Design designation for Geelong.

Economic Development also supported a number of key local and regional events throughout the year, including the Deakin University Geelong Business Excellence Awards, the Geelong Innovate Expo, and the Upstart Entrepreneurial Challenge, and assisted 600 small businesses through workshops and one-on-one mentoring.
