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!

2017 Exhibitor Testimonials
It was a good and well organised event, good opportunity to present products and collect leads.
We are very pleased with the results so far from exhibiting at Farm Fantastic and the event organisers did an outstanding job. Hassle free arrangements for setting up and closing down.
We received enquiries from potential sellers and our website gained valuable exposure in the market place. One party visited the Expo on Saturday and specifically returned to the event again on Sunday to speak to us about the potential sale of their property. Over all attending the Expo was an excellent promotion of our business.
Each year we attend the Farm Fantastic and have been completely happy with the event and result we have achieved. We will continue displaying at the show each year. As long as you want us, we’ll be there!
Queensland Verti Block found the Expo a great help in the promotion of our retaining wall product. We got to meet loads of potential customers, and the visitors to our site were overwhelmingly positive about our product, regularly saying that they can’t wait to need a wall that looks so good.
It was well organised. Check-in was stress free. All event staff were friendly and helpful. They made the whole exercise a great success.
