2016 Exhibitor Testimonials
Thankyou for the opportunity to set up our SARCIS, NHW and Police recruiting display at Beef Expo. Hopefully the event will grow and become a permanent fixture of events in Toowoomba.
A good event which enabled us to meet our clients and showcase our product directly to our target market. Hopefully, this event will grow every year.
We found it a worthwhile exercise as people were genuinely interested in our site and we had good leads, probably more so than we have had at big field days where we have tended to get lost in the midst of the Big Guys!
We appreciate all the hard work that went into planning such an impressive event for the first Qld Beef Expo, and Performance Feeds – Anipro were delighted to be apart of it. We made some great connections and look forward to the next.
We found and spoke to a huge range of new customers, got to say gday to many of our current customers, and showcase some of the different things we do, the event was great value, and we cant wait to do it again!
The inaugural Beef Expo was a wonderful opportunity for us to highlight our beef cattle stud, Santa Gertrudis cattle and the Darling Downs as a beef cattle hub. The Expo was a great success for us with a continual flow of enquiries and follow-up opportunities. We will be exhibiting again in the future and imagine other beef associated companies will jump on board to take advantage of long-term benefits of exposure at such an event.

The Agri-Business Development Institute Seminars were extremely informative. Very useful and can be applied to a variety of situation.Megan
My wife and I had a great time there was an excellent variety of products that kept us both busy. We stayed longer and spent more than we thought we would and left very happy.Fred
It was a great opportunity to see all the up to date farming products in one location. And to research and talk to the farmers about the breeds of cattle. For us it was an opportunity to gather more information and see what is the latest and greatest in feedstock, cattle husbandry and choices of cattle for our region.Sam
I find it is important for the area and for farmers, beef cattle owners. Also workplace health & safety.Bruce
The event was a great start. It was very enjoyable and well planned.Liz
