Central West Young Entrepreneurs Summit 2022

Mid-Western Regional Council’s third annual Central West Young Entrepreneurs Summit has been postponed from October 2021 until Thursday, 17 March 2022 due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Co-ordinated with small business in mind, the Summit will now align with the 2022 NSW Small Business Month and showcase some of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs who launched major brands including Budgy Smuggler, and Camplify.

These entrepreneurs will share their successes, failures and insights in a broad range of fields including renovation, design and construction, social media, fashion and retail, technology and the shared economy, tourism, agribusiness and hospitality.

“This is a great event for local business to learn for entrepreneurs who have grown multi-million dollar companies from scratch,” Council’s General Manager, Brad Cam said.

“I encourage anyone in local business to come along and learn more.”

Leading the event are The Block favourites Kyal and Kara. Since featuring on the Channel Nine program the couple have launched their own design and construction business and completed more than 35 renovation program as well as building a huge social media following.

Co-founder of one of Australia’s biggest swimwear brands, Budgy Smuggler, Adam Linforth will share his experiences developing a fashion brand that is now shipped internationally.

“We’re in a time where regional businesses can reach national and global audiences,” Mr Linforth said.

“People actually care about where products come from. That’s a great combination. I’m excited to network and share my business journey with the professionals attending the summit.”

CEO and founder of Camplify, Justin Hales created Australia’s largest caravan, camper and motorhome sharing community and has a wealth of insight into the tourism and sharing economy.

A networking event will be held following the summit, when participants can chat one on one with speakers. The Summit will be held at Parklands Resort, Mudgee on Thursday 17 March 2021. Tickets are $149 at youngentrepreneurssummit.com.au

Council is proud to deliver the Summit after securing funding through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 3.
