Rediscover and Relaunch
17 & 18.02.2022

The Backing Business Forum is back, and this time, in Bathurst!


The theme for the 2022 forum is Rediscover and Relaunch as we take a look at the year that’s been, what worked and what didn’t, and rediscover new tools to help us relaunch into the new business age.

Held over two days, the event will feature a pre-forum networking dinner at The Victoria on Thursday, 17 February, followed by the main event at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre (BMEC) on Friday, 18 February 2022.


The networking dinner is a great opportunity to catch-up with members of the local business community and meet some of the speakers taking to the stage the next day. It all kicks off at Little Alberts at The Victoria from 6:30pm and will wrap up at 8:30pm. Tickets include a wonderful selection of canapes and a complimentary drink.


On Friday, we are excited to welcome a fantastic lineup of new and exciting speakers who will take part in three panel sessions with our host, Pippa Moore.

Now a vibrant country city with a rich cultural heritage, Bathurst manages to combine rural, manufacturing and education industries with a lifestyle rich in sport, art and tourism facilities.   Home to one of the great motor racing circuits in the world, Mount Panorama, Bathurst is synonymous with motorsport.
