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!

This was our first experience exhibiting and didn’t really know what to expect. It turned out to be a huge success with
plenty of interests in our services. Very cost effective way to reach our target market. Overall an extremely pleasant experience from start to finish ‐ From booking the site last minute to setting up stand, chatting and getting tips from other store holders; and of course generatingplenty of business from the many attendees at the event. We will certainly return next year.

Great event, always look forward to this one and the one at Kawana later in year. Great entertainment value and what new products are out thereDave
Cheaper that the big city even, and much more enjoyable. Friendlier, not as crowded and felt good supporting a local town. I Saw more things I liked than I ever have at the Brisbane caravaning/camping shows and was able to get a good look with the jostle of too many people.Nikki
