The 2017 Cairns Home Show and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo was once again a huge success !! The Expo took place on the 12-14 May 2017 at the Cairns Showgrounds. We experienced brilliant weather, huge crowds and great local media coverage.
The event saw everything from caravans, camper trailers and 4x4 accessories to solar, blinds, builders and roofing. You name it, it was at this event.
The 2017 event housed 174 local, regional and national companies on show at the Cairns Showgrounds. While visitor attendance was up 8% from 2015, which made for a new visitor record of 15,469 !
We would like to say a special thank you to our exhibitors and patrons, you are what made this such a successful event.
We are now evaluating event feedback, from both exhibitors and visitors in order to make the 2018 Cairns Expo the best yet ! Stay tuned for 2018 dates !!

The Cairns Home Show and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo was very well organised, run and attended. Thank you for the opportunity to display our products.
We have always enjoyed exhibiting at this expo,and they have always been very successful also. We were a little apprehensive about the success of the expo this year, what with the state of the economy etc. We should not have been! Cairns delivered to us, our best expo there yet. It was amazing! Well done on an extremely run expo – a pleasure to be an exhibitor.
