Last Saturday we had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Pivot City Geelong Business Expo, and
what an experience it was!
We had the opportunity to exhibit alongside some of Geelong’s best small business and met creatives and motivated business leaders alike.
For those who may be unaware, the Geelong Business Expo is designed to facilitate an event where small business owners have the opportunity to connect and network with like-minded people as well as allowing the public to see what our gorgeous city offers!
The expo was established by three incredible women from Geelong Women in Business – Samantha Krajina, Samantha Wilson and Kirsty Whitehead, all of whom were amazing help and incredibly supportive of the 100 businesses exhibiting, we can’t thank them enough for putting on such an incredible event.
We collaborated with other Geelong businesses for the setup of our stall – we had donut cupcakes from Winifreds and an amazing cascading table arrangement from As Daisy Does
The expo was such a huge success and we had the best day meeting potential
customers and possible partners for future collabs!
We were able to show potential customers the quality of our products
face-to-face rather than over a screen and explain to them what Geelong
Portrait Studio is all about
We ran a competition on the day that had three pretty major prizes; it was
so well received we might just have to do it again!
The prizes included a free photoshoot with a large canvas or frame, a $250
voucher to spend with us and third prize was a free session with us in the
The latter part of the day included a fashion show sponsored by genU whose
vision is to build inclusive communities. The fashion parade showcased so many
talented, local designers and boutiques whose models were of all sizes, shapes
and backgrounds – a truly beautiful and inspiring event for the day.
We were so privileged to be asked to capture the images from the runway and had
the best time doing so.
We want to thank Samantha for being incredibly welcoming and supportive over the day and we can’t wait to
come back next year!
