“Even in these early stages of the 2010 launch, exhibitor interest has been very strong and all indications are that QME 2010 will again be the key show for the Queensland mining industry,” Reed Exhibitions Australia group exhibition director John Gorton said.
The 2010 QME will take place in Mackay on July 27-29. Held every two years, the 2008 event attracted more than 500 exhibitors and over 10,000 visitors.
“As an internationally recognised event, QME traditionally attracts exhibitors and visitors from throughout Australia and overseas markets such as China and India,” Gorton said.
“It’s long been recognised that the face-to-face contact with clients and prospects at exhibitions is a driving force behind companies increasing sales, education and awareness within an industry.
“This becomes even more relevant in the current economic climate.”
