30TH JUNE – 2ND JULY 2017
Caboolture Showgrounds, Caboolure, Queensland
Exhibitions and trade events are one of the most cost effective and proven sales and lead generation tools available to businesses today. There is no other marketing or promotional medium available that can place your company directly in front of thousands of qualified shoppers who are attending an event specifically to view, compare and purchase products and services. Exhibitions and trade events give you the ability to directly connect one on one, face to face with new and existing customers. You have the ability to promote yourself and your company, demonstrate your products, explain features and benefits, directly sell and take orders, plus you will receive immediate feedback that will assist you to understand your customers better.
Australian Events have been assisting businesses small and large for over 20 years. We have seen many incredible success stories and have watched hundreds of companies grow from initial business ideas into successful businesses and market leaders. There is no doubt that your business can benefit greatly from exhibiting at events. If you put the time and energy into planning your exhibition, use motivated, passionate and friendly staff , have great products and services, and are ready to work your stand hard for the length of the exhibition, you will succeed!

2016 Visitor Testimonials
It was a great day out and I learned new skills (how to make cheese) and went home and made some. The information available from the stall holders was invaluable, as I found products and services I will be able to use at a later date.Linda
What a great event! The alpacas were captivating, the cooking shows entertaining and the specials on offer were amazing.Robyn
I was most impressed that it was cheap and easy to buy food. Usually at events the food prices are ridiculous. I will be purchasing a new tractor, shipping container, carport and a zero turn mower from exhibitor at the show it made it easy to compare them.Michelle
