​It’s no trick! The Canterbury-Bankstown Business Advisory Service (CBBAS) has arranged a special treat for local businesses this Halloween.

As part of Small Business Month, this year’s Get Connected Business Networking Event will have a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween theme.

There will be fang-tastic hosts and networking opportunities; a spooky maze; and hidden monsters to find, with a prize for each monster found.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the popular annual networking event, to be held on Wednesday 31 October (11.30am-4pm), is one not to miss.

“You’ll meet industry-leading experts, gain valuable support, be inspired to start or grow your business and connect with like-minded people,” he said.

"A great new feature coming to this year’s event, is the introduction of six Trick or Treat Chat Pod sessions, led by industry experts.”

The halloween-themed 25-minute sessions will explore:

  • Night time economy in the Dracula Pod – “Let us quench your thirst”;
  • Smart Cities in the Witch Pod – “How to lift the innovation spell”;
  • Start-ups in the Zombie Pod – “Is starting a new business making you feel buried?”;
  • Creativity economy in the Frankenstein Pod – “Join the nuts and bolts of creativity”, with Shaped Outcomes Managing Director Brian Peddie and Director Di Shaw;
  • Manufacturing in the Gremlins Pod – “Flush out the gremlins” with Western Sydney University Launch Pad Directors Don Wright and Inu Rana; and
  • Skills and training in the Werewolf Pod – “Pretty smart and skillful animal” with TAFE NSW, Regional General, Western Sydney Manager Michael Cullen.
