A new show focussing on small to medium businesses looking to increase trade will be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from 18-19 September.
The Import Export Show will feature business information and seminars, including opportunities to hear from experts on how to develop and maintain new markets.
Show organisers, UK-based AZ Worldwide and Trade Australia, expect up to 3,000 SME decision-makers to attend the trade show over the two days.
The show is being held in association with Austrade and the NSW Department of State and Regional Development, which are actively supporting it as part of Small Business September 2008.
Australia’s two leading freight associations – the Australian Federation of International Forwarders (AFIF) and the Customs Brokers Forwarders Council of Australia (CBFCA) – have also supported the event.

The summit will bring together government officials, the CEOs of Australia’s major ports, freight operators, shipping lines, rail companies, stevedores, and infrastructure companies to discuss the future of Australian freight.
