The 2017 Rockhampton Home Show & Caravan, Camping, 4x4 & Fishing Expo was once again a massive success! The Expo took place from the 25th to the 27th of August 2017 at the Rockhampton Showgrounds. The event was welcomed with brilliant weather, great local media coverage and a positive turn out from visitors.

The event showcased everything from caravans, camper trailers and 4x4 accessories to solar energy solutions, blinds, contractors and roofing. There really was something for everyone at the Rockhampton Expo.

The 2017 event brought together over 160 local, regional and national companies and attracted over 13,000 visitors! All in all, this event was massive!

The team at Australian Events would love to give a big thank you to all our exhibitors and to everyone who visited the event, you are all what made the 2017 Rockhampton Expo so successful!

We are currently evaluating event feedback form both exhibitors and visitors to work towards making the 2018 Rockhampton Expo the best one yet! 2018 dates will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

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 show. 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.
