Extremely well run and all staff are well informed and disciplined. The way it event for exhibitors getting set up and out is excellent. I couldn’t fault it – total pleasure to be one of your exhibitors.
2019 Rockhampton Expo helps in the promotion of our Business and extends our customer base helping to increase our sales and customer knowledge of our extensive range of products.
We exhibited at the Robert Schwarten Pavillion and I found that everything we requested was put in place and a short notice I should add. The cubicle was visually appealing, location was able to receive all traffic from both aspects of people entering and exiting the pavilion. I foun the staff to be friendly and helpful a well as mindful of all health and safety protocols. There was a good mix of exhibitors to draw the patrons. I was very happy with the event and feel exhibitors had every opportunity to maximise their products and services, I would definitely promote the event to my supervisors in the future.

Excellent range of camper trailers, caravans and mobile homes, Ron Wilson demonstration of Damper cooking was great and all-in-all, well done.
Looking at upgrading from a camper to a pop up caravan, was great to be able to look at what is available all in one place, awesome variety.
We haven’t started caravanning yet so attended the expo to ‘dip our toes in the water’. We learned soooo much. On Saturday we looked at lots of vans and campers and asked lots of questions. Exhibitors were very helpful and generous with their time. Sunday we returned with more focused on two vans in particular and set our sight on one van in particular. We plan to purchase our van at the expo next year.
We loved the large range of caravans as we are looking to purchase. We equally enjoyed many of the individual small stalls which provided a great range of products to look at and purchase.
We took visiting friends with us to the Expo, and we all enjoyed it greatly. We liked the diversity of products shown and the friendliness of the exhibitors. We will be back.
