The Small Business Development Conference organising committee is pleased to announce details of the 2017 conference to be held at;
The Ville Resort-Casino, Townsville on the 21st and 22nd August 2017

Townsville is a vibrant commercial centre but more importantly a great place to start exploring tropical North Queensland. With the conference venue settled the organising committee is working on the development of a strong program with a focus on professional development and more opportunity to network with colleagues and share best practice in delivering services to our small business clients.

The Ville Resort-Casino located on the Townsville Breakwater with stunning views over the CBD, marina and seaward to Magnetic Island offers a variety of hotel accommodation, excellent conference facilities and a number of restaurants and bars onsite all just a few minutes walk from the retail centre of Townsville and the many seaside dining options along The Strand. The Ville Resort-Casino is in the final stages of a $35 million redevelopment with the conference facilities and accommodation completed and final works on upgrading bars and restaurants to be completed in the next couple of months and comfortably ready for us in August.

Unfortunately, the final stage of the redevelopment which focusses on the rear garden landscaping, pool and associated poolside bars and restaurants will not be completed by our visit but the hotel does have an alternative pool option for guests.
Time to note the conference dates in your diary and start thinking about your visit to Townsville.  We will not only be keeping you up to date on program details as they become available but also tempting you on pre and post conference options to encourage you to plan some R & R and enjoy a few extra days in Tropical North Queensland.

See you in Townsville in August 2017 when the average daily temperature is a very pleasant 26C.
