Level Up Your Business
Sunshine Coast Council has redeveloped its Level Up Your Business website with resources from all levels of government, industry and education.
The centralised and easily accessible platform now hosts an array of helpful information, tools and programs to support local businesses through any stage of your business.
Whether you’re starting out new or you’re a long-time operator, Level Up Your Business is here to help with business planning, networking, support information, continuity planning, permits, licenses and regulations, grants, funding and more.
Sunshine Coast based event suppliers are invited to register business details and build the directory via a FREE listing platform for local venues, facilities and event services.
It will be a great pathway to connect event suppliers to event organisers, offering easy access to experienced local suppliers on the Sunshine Coast to plan and deliver successful events and activities.
This is an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Events Industry Association to ensure our event industry network can have the best opportunities with business-to-business communication.
