This event was to celebrate Melbourne Day. Robert Doyle, the Mayor of Melbourne spoke at the event about the future of Melbourne and also reflected on achievements within the municipality over the past year.
The event was organised by the Melbourne Business Network, was held at The Trust, a bar that is located in a heritage style building on Flinders Lane. Catering and the layout of the event provided a friendly and welcoming setting for networking.
The aim of the event was to provide small business owners to network with corporate organisations and discuss all things Melbourne. There was a wide mix of people in the room, with most attendees either being small business owners or Business Development Managers from corporate organisations. Most small business owners were either start ups or had their business for a considerable amount of time.
It was quite easy to network at the event as Melbourne Business Network provided the opportunity during the event to network with people that you may not know.
