The Central Coast Industry Festival is designed to support Central Coast-based businesses involved in the manufacturing and food production sectors to rebound from the impacts of bushfires and COVID-19 and build resilience against future disruption.
It will be held over two weeks from 22nd August – 3rd September 2022, and will include free capability building workshops, guest speaker sessions and a 3-day Industry Expo.
The Central Coast Industry Festival is jointly funded by the Commonwealth and New South Wales Government under their Disaster Recovery funding arrangements.
Held on the final three days of the Central Coast Industry Festival from Thurs 1st Sept to Sat 3rd Sept, the Industry Expo provides an exciting opportunity for local manufacturers and food producers to showcase their businesses, products and brands to industry visitors from the local region and Sydney.
In addition to industry visitors attending each of the 3 days, on Day 2 (Fri 2nd Sept) students from local schools will be invited to attend the Expo to explore vocation and career pathways in manufacturing and on Day 3 (Sat 3rd Sept) the Expo will be open to the wider Central Coast community.
The venue has limited capacity so applicants may be waitlisted pending availability of exhibition spaces. Not all applicants may be able to exhibit at the 2022 event.
