An exciting opportunity for Pasifika business

Pacific Business Network (PBN) launches its new online directory of Pacific “Spacific” businesses, service providers, professionals, performing artists and businesspeople from across the globe in January 2021. An idea borne out of one of the Pacific Connect Dialogues in Brisbane, and fine-tuned during Covid-19, aims to be a comprehensive and one-stop resource for businesses, customers, community organisations, as well as local, corporate and government agencies.

Whether you’re searching for a particular business, product/s, event/s, local community group, professional service in a particular city or country, Pacific Business Direct is a great online source for comprehensive Pacific Business & Services information.

We bridge the gap between our users, business, service providers, community, government, and organisations by helping users find relevant providers of products and services for the Pacific quickly, while helping business listed in the database connect, showcase, and market their offerings.

Businesses listed will range from Pacific Island professionals, ie: accountants, lawyers, Pacific retail, fashion, beauty, community council groups, to freight forwarding consultants. All “Pacific Spasifik” and all in one space to search and find. The directory is a much-needed resource that not only services the Pacific, but our wider Community can easily see what Pacific businesses out there, not just locally in their city, but globally. Businesses and communities can collectively support each other locally and internationally. It’s also a great way to celebrate the progress and success being made by each Pacific business on a wider level. This directory has been a long time coming and will better connect our businesspeople with each other as well as the global community.

Local councils, government departments, mainstream businesses, trade and any other corporate organisations wanting to reach the Pacific community for procurement or commercial purposes can also advertise in the directory.

All businesses listed on the directory will gain automatic access to Membership of the Pacific Business Network, a hub for Pacific business owners, professionals, and emerging businesses that aims to foster a support network where each can share the journey, challenges, tips but also know that each journey at whatever stage of their business they are not alone and have access to online training. Membership will offer exclusive member-only discounted event tickets, early release event notification, access to coaching and mentoring partners, online member access training programs, priority registration to Pacific trade show events, feature ‘spotlight’ articles, and more.

If you would like to list your business, service, or community group, Pacific Connect members will be offered the opportunity to list their business for a free 14-day trail prior to the launch in mid-January. To apply, contact by 3 January 2021.
