Supporting the growth and success of Australian business

The Australian Business Forum (ABF) is excited to announce that CommBank SmallBiz Week 2023 will run in Melbourne from 23 – 25 May 2023, bringing together thousands of business owners, government agencies and industry leaders.

“Small businesses have shown extraordinary resilience and are now entering 2023 with a renewed sense of business confidence,” said Ray Evans, CEO of ABF Events. “We are proud to once again partner with CommBank and look forward to welcoming back thousands of business owners, delegates and visitors.”

CommBank SmallBiz Week 2023 will provide small businesses across all industries the opportunity to come together under the one roof to network, discuss tackling challenges and learn how to future-proof their strategies and drive business success.

CommBank Group Executive Business Banking Mike Vacy-Lyle said: “At CommBank, we recognise the vital role small business owners play in our economy. That is why we are excited to once again be a naming sponsor for CommBank SmallBiz Week 2023, an opportunity for these entrepreneurs to connect, learn and grow. We are proud to be a part of this event and to support the success of small businesses in every way we can.”

Connecting Businesses Across Australia

CommBank SmallBiz Week 2023 will host thousands of visitors and present over 100 exhibitors over 3 days at Marvel Stadium Melbourne May 23 – 25, 2023. The event includes multiple B2B networking functions and Australia’s largest small business expo. CommBank SmallBiz Week 2023 will also host two major forums with interactive keynotes and industry panels featuring leading small businesses, entrepreneurs and industry thought-leaders.

The event kicks off on May 23 with a black-tie gala dinner celebrating the rising champions of Australian business with CommBank SmallBiz Young Hero Awards. The awards program recognises the achievements of trailblazing entrepreneurs and business leaders 35 years and younger.

The Business Leaders Luncheon returns as CommBank Smallbiz Week 2023’s major corporate function and focuses on the critical support required for the SME sector and the future of small business in Australia.
