6 MAY - 12 MAY 2018


Aligned Events

There’s no excuse not to join the fun with a long list of breakfasts, lunches and dinners to choose from daily.

The Central Queensland community will also join in the celebrations of Beef Australia 2018, with a number of social events to be held throughout the week.

We are seeking expressions of interest from organisations holding events immediately before, during and after Beef Australia 2018 – May 6-12.

Where appropriate and approved we will promote your event via our social media and in the official program as an aligned event.

In 2015 over 90,000 people attended Beef Australia including 1,100 registered international guests from over 40 countries.

An independent Economic Impact Study indicated that $74 million was spent in the region during the event.

We wants guests visiting our region to come earlier, stay longer and take in all that our great region has to offer.

Please feel free to forward information regarding your event to beefexpo@beefaustralia.com.au
