With less than a month to go before the inaugural North Queensland Industry & Resources (NQ) Expo, there’s still enough time to plan a visit to Townsville for what promises to be a huge trade event
NQ event director Bob Carroll said the many new developments in the region, including confirmation of the Abbot Point expansion, bring even more significance to the NQ Expo.
“The event presents a great number of businesses the opportunity to take advantage of these developments,” Carroll said.
“It puts them in a prime position to network and build relationships, market and generate sales, and also gather and share information on local industry activity.”
Dozens of exhibitors are registered to showcase their products and services at NQ Expo covering almost 40 sectors, from equipment and automotive to portable and demountable accommodation, earthmoving and exploration, safety and workplace health, technology and automation, warehousing and transportation, and security, to employment services and training, water treatment, and more.
“This is the first industry-based event of this type to be staged in North Queensland and already businesses have indicated a great willingness to exhibit at the event or participate as a delegate,” Carroll said.
“It’s a one-stop shop for the industry and resources sector, and really does mean that you’ll find everything you need in one place with plenty of opportunity for networking and developing better business connections.”
Mr Carroll expects that the NQ Expo will follow in the footsteps of other successful expositions in Central Queensland and the Surat Basin, which are in their 3rd and 4th year respectively, and establish itself as a key date on calendars of the industry and resources sector.
The NQ Expo which will run from March 27 to 28 at the Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre.
