The Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual Business Showcase next week at the Arts Centre Gold Coast, as part of Small Business Week.
The event seeks to help local businesses raise their profile to a broad network of businesspeople and customers.
Southport-based business Maylake exhibited in last year's Showcase and has booked again for this year's event.
"Last year's Showcase was really successful, it was such a positive event for the business community and a great marketing tool for our business," says Marketing Manager Sarah Davari.
"Not only is it a great way to promote our business to the wider community, but provides a chance to network with other business owners and hear from a great range of speakers.
"It's really helped us grow our profile as a leading commercial office space leasing company," she said.
The event gives local businesses the opportunity to promote their products and services while hearing from industry leaders and connecting with the broader community.
Gold Coast Central Chamber President Peter Yared says the event is expected to attract around 50 exhibitors and hundreds of business leaders.
"We are expecting a huge turn out this year as one of the official events of Small Business Week," says Mr Yared.
"The Business Showcase is one of the most important events on the Gold Coast business calendar, helping local businesses create a name for themselves in their chosen fields.
"It also creates a way for Gold Coast businesses to engage with potential customers and other businesses on a local level."
The Business Showcase is free to the general public and invites a range of people with different interests to learn about each business and their products and services.
Speakers include Hayley Tarr of Minter Ellison, Mark Stallwood of Careers Australia, Josh Sattler from Commonwealth Games City of Gold Coast, and Trevor Lee and Lilly Choi-Lee of TravConsult.
The event will be held on Wednesday 18 May from 9:00am to 3:00pm at the Arts Centre Gold Coast.
