Our sales person at Australian Events is Linda. She rang to tell us that she was moving our site to an area closer to the main entrance. At first I had doubts about the location but those doubts were quickly forgotten early on the first day. By midday Saturday we had completely run out of brochures which was very much unexpected. Overall a TERRIFIC result. Thank YOU Linda, Thank You Australian Events – Bob, Saul & Aly
A very successful show. The advertising in the Event Guide in the newspaper works so well for us. Research by the customers have been done prior to attending the show. Thank you to all the team.
As a Regional Tourism Body, we were there to promote the Fraser Coast to the Rockhampton Region. For us, it was about conversations and the amount of our Promotional material we give away and the Rockhampton Show was on par with the Melbourne Super Show, with the number of our Regional Holidays Planners we gave away…
We had a number of inquiries during the 3 days of The Rockhampton Home Show Event, which have turned into positive leads. Our new customers were able to see and experience the value of our products during this event.
We love attending Australian Events Expo’s. Always extremely well organised and the staff are always willing to help with a smile. Our site right across from the fishing show was excellent. Can’t wait to head back next year.
Paint Place CQ was able to be part of the Rocky Home Show as event sponsor of the DIY Stage. We were able to demonstrate to our potential customers our products and services during the DIY Presentations. Australian Events runs an extremely well organised and professional event which caters for the exhibitors and attendees requirements very well. Paint Place CQ will certainly be involved in the 2018 event.

A great range of products and laid out for easy comparison.
We loved the variety of goods and services available and also the demonstrations, learnt a lot this year.
Great event good to see the exhibiters going to so much trouble with their set-ups.
Went to dream about caravans and ended up buying one.
My sister and I make this our yearly thing to do together. We had a great time. Came home with heaps of information on what I was looking for.
My wife and I went to the expo with the intention of purchasing a camper trailer for a reasonable price and found one we both liked at an excellent price. Thanks to Blackseries Campers, we came away with a bargain.
