To our valued exhibitors, sponsors, entertainers and patrons,

As you are all aware, COVID-19 has begun to have a significant impact on our communities. We have been closely monitoring the situation as it evolves, and have done our utmost to respond cautiously.

As a result of the Australian Government applying increased trading restrictions on the events industry, we regretfully inform you that the 2020 Cairns and Mackay Expos have been postponed.

We are working with the event venues and local councils to look at future dates that may suit, and as soon as we have some clarity on that we will get back to all concerned.

Our office will continue to operate but it will be on a skeleton staff. Rather than phoning, please direct any enquiries to

We will contact exhibitors and concerned parties as soon as trading restrictions are to be lifted and/or when we have an alternative date for the events.

We thank you sincerely for working with us through this unprecedented situation.

The Australian Events website will be updated regularly with current information on all events. For the most recent updates, please click here.
