Gippsland Regional Showcase postponed

By now you will have heard of the cancellation of the 2026 Commonwealth Games, which were scheduled to take place here in Victoria.

At Industry Capability Network (ICN) Victoria, we remain steadfast in our commitment to help local industry, by connecting Victorian businesses to projects and networking opportunities and showcasing local capability.

In light of the Victorian Government’s announcement, we assure you that we have a continuous presence in regional Victoria with our Industry Advisers who can assist you to connect to project opportunities and supply chains across Victoria and nationally.  Please visit our ICN Gateway page which currently has 82 live opportunities.

We are committed to continuing our regional events program. Our Shepparton Showcase scheduled for 26 July will now be postponed to later this year and we look forward to updating you as soon as new dates are confirmed.

Please note our planned Gippsland Regional Showcase is on hold as we consider new content. We are also holding a Geelong Regional Showcase later in the year.

Thank you for your support and participation in ICN’s activities. Together, we will continue to help local win and create a legacy for Victoria.

Yours sincerely,

Dianne Smith
