After recently launching the LJ Hooker Brand on the Northern Beaches, we found the Cairns Home Show Expo a great tool to expose all our locations on a single platform and meet the community.Nick
It was professionally run. Event staff were very helpful with set up and pull down, could not fault the staff and organisers of this event. A big thank you to Jason, he was very helpful with information and checking in on all exhibitors.Adriena
2018 has been our most successful Expo to date. We have taken over $2000 in sales over the last couple of days, two couples have ordered residential solar for their properties and the great feedback we have been getting is amazing. All from the Expo! We are very happy with the results.Carmel
We had a good experience at the 2018 Cairns Expo. We intend to be an exhibitor again in 2019. This was our first event as new owners of the business and we found all the event staff courteous and helpful.Pauline
This Expo was the most successful for our business so far in all the events we have exhibited with Australian Events. We did book a live broadcast for this event which was well executed by the announcer, maybe that did have a positive affect.Frank

It was so good I went twice, for a total of 9 hours. I didn’t want to miss anything on show. Several friends placed orders for caravans to be built. This show was better than last year’s.Steve
Heaps to see, lots of great ideas, exhibitions etc. Great to see an area to rest up and give the kids a play. Spent most of the day, was a great family/Mother’s Day. We’ll go again next year.Andrea
A huge improvement on my last trip to this event 3 years ago. A great promotion of our lifestyle up here in FNQ & great to see so many local businesses.Carly
