2016 Exhibitor Testimonials

Being a local business based in Hervey Bay the show enables us to display our products to potential customers outside of our local area. In past years we have sold our campers to interstate buyers via the show and this year came up trumps again. If any fellow local businesses read this I would definitely attend this show if the opportunity prevails.

Palomino RV Australia

We found the expo to be a fabulous opportunity to interact face to face with locals to provide information on correct recycling and waste water practices.

Fraser Coast Regional Council

To all the team at Australian Events, thank you. Great attendance, well organised and helpful staff. No complaints whatsoever and keep up the great work. See you there next year.

Satplus Queensland

The event was very well organised and professional run. The site was clean at all times (no rubbish overflowing bins). Staff were helpful and polite. Overall as this was our first experience in participating in an event like this, we were very happy with the outcome and will be back for 2017 Show.

Climate Control Systems

We were very happy with how the show was run. It is a great opportunity to showcase your product. We certainly will be at the 2017 Show.

Allweld Manufacturing Pty Ltd

The wide bay show captures the right customer base ,as caravanners are always in this region at this time of year. The crowds are excellent,and the show has a good vibe.

2016 Visitor Testimonials

Had a lot of fun and spent a lot of money. We went just to look at caravans and actually bought one cos the show special was irresistible. Adventure before dementia … bring it on!

Alayn

Event Visitor

The show was so comprehensive, we needed to return the next day to see it all. The drive from Brisbane was worth it.

Maurie

Event Visitor

Attended to have a look at the new caravans and to compare brands. Found a lovely one that suits us for future purchase.

Judith

Event Visitor

There was huge variety of exhibitors to choose from, some I managed to gather some information from that will help in some future purchases. One of the exhibitors I visited to get some info, who has a business in Hervey Bay, I visited today (Monday) to purchase some items that we discussed at the show. I came away with some great ideas and plans for the future. This is the first show of this type I have ever visited and found it very informative. Thanks to the organizers and exhibitors for a very good show.
