They provide a great opportunity to outline the unit and our role in Wyndham City but to learn more about the individual business and how Wyndham City can better support it in the future.
Industry visitation is important in gaining a better understanding of the dynamic business climate in Wyndham and consequently in influencing our future planning. To arrange a time to meet with your local economic development officer email firstname.lastname@example.org.
