ICN Victoria Regional Opportunity Showcases
ICN Victoria has recently hosted two Regional Opportunities Showcases. The first took place at the GMHBA Stadium in Geelong, on the 21st of May, covering the Barwon and Great South Coast region. The showcase was hosted by Geelong footy legend Cameron Ling and included presentations from WestWind Energy, Regional Development Victoria, Rail Projects Victoria, the City of Greater Geelong and the Local Jobs First Commissioner.
Geelong based ICN Industry Adviser, Peter McCracken, said “It was absolutely fantastic to have so many people in the room to listen about hugely important local projects. The Barwon and Great South Coast region is really thriving, and it is great to see so many local businesses wanting to be a part of the success.”
“It was a real privilege to have Cameron Ling MC on the night. Cameron really highlighted the benefit the local community will gain once these local projects are completed. The support that the Geelong Manufacturing Council and Engineering Network Geelong gave to the event was greatly appreciated.”
The second Regional Opportunities Showcase took place in Shepparton, on the 28th of May, covering the Greater Shepparton and Hume region. Peter Harriott, CEO of the Greater Shepparton City Council MC’d the event. The Showcase held at the iconic Shepparton Showgrounds included presentations from Kane Constructions, Rail Projects Victoria, Coleman Rail, Lendlease, the Committee for Greater Shepparton, the Local Jobs First Commissioner and Kaiela Institute.
Grant Jennings, ICN Industry Adviser for Greater Shepparton and Hume, said “ICN Victoria is back in the regions and we want to engage with as many local businesses as possible. ICN Gateway is a great way for regional businesses to keep up to date and to connect to local and state-wide projects.”
“I was thrilled to meet so many new companies at the Showcase. We heard from some inspirational projects and it is great to see the community coming together to make Greater Shepparton and Hume an even better region to live and work in. Finally, I’d like to thank the Greater Shepparton City Council for their support of this event.”
