“I joined Showcase SA as a way to reconnect with the Adelaide business community when I came back to South Australia in mid 2021. Since then Showcase SA has become a big part of my networking and business development calendar. Showcase SA is more than a great networking opportunity as it also provides fantastic access to some amazing speakers and guests, as well as very insightful masterclasses which provide great level of understanding of key issues confronting SME’s”

“I’ve been witness to Showcase SA’s evolution since it’s inception, and I’ll admit, I was initially sceptical about joining this network two years ago. I thought it might be just another organisation lost in Adelaide’s sea of networking groups. However, I couldn’t have been more mistaken. Steve Testar and his team have transformed Showcase SA into an indispensable hub, drawing in South Australia’s key decision-makers, entrepreneurs, and the unsung hero’s of business to the forefront.”

“In February 2023, I decided to upgrade my membership from Silver to Platinum as I could see the real value in accessing additional opportunities that would connect me to a greater range of professionals. As a Platinum Showcase SA Member, I have had the opportunity to attend many exclusive events. I see these opportunities as not only a way to meet others, but as professional development.”

“Following the Australian Government’s Budget in 2020, it was my singular pleasure to give a wrap ip briefing to the members and guests of Showcase SA at their post budget lunch. It was a challenge in the coronavirus pandemic to pull off such as event, but the folk at Showcase SA did a tremendous job. Full credit to them for running such a positive and valuable organisation that supports our state.”

Christopher Pyne

Former Member of Parliament

“Being one of the first members since its inception, I’ve seen Showcase SA grow from strength to strength. Their events are world class, and their member companies are of high quality. The amount of great connections with high level executives as a direct result of being a Showcase SA member is invaluable. I have no hesitation telling my peers and clients about Showcase SA, and the wonderful work they’re doing for the business community in SA.”

“Showcase SA is not just an excellent networking opportunity, but much more. Showcase SA events are broadening the knowledge and understanding across the range of industry sectors important to SA. This is mutually beneficial, alerting business opportunities in other sectors to lunch guests and erasing barriers between industry sectors.”

Rob Kerin

Former Premier of South Australia

“We remain a member of Showcase SA to continue to network with like-minded South Australian organisations who are committed to the wellbeing and economic growth of South Australia, and spark shared creativity and innovation within local business.”

“I was thrilled to present keynotes at two Showcase SA lunches. Not only did they give me the invaluable opportunity of reaching a high level audience of South Australian business leaders, there was great camaraderie and lively thought-provoking interaction with the audience. A special experience in what has been an extraordinary year for me!”
