The 2018 Gold Coast Expo had a massive prize pool this year, including 6 unique holiday packages, 3 Westinghouse Generators, a 5KW Solar System, PLUS early entries to the Billabong Caravan Prize! On top of this, the Event saw an increase in visitor numbers, along with brilliant weather and great success overall.
