EVENT: Queensland Mining and Engineering Expo

The Queensland Mining and Engineering (QME) exhibition returns to the Mackay Showground from 26-28 July 2016, bringing stakeholders from the Queensland mining industry together in one place.

After modest beginnings as a small regional event, QME now ranks as one of Australia’s largest regional mining expos.

Hundreds of exhibitors will be showcasing the latest advancements in mining and engineering technology. In attendance will be Queensland mining industry leaders and representatives from key mining equipment and technology suppliers.

The expo opens with an industry networking event at the QME Opening Party, giving attendees an opportunity to meet and connect with others in the industry in an informal environment.

Over 100 different products will be on display at the event covering all aspects of mining including air conditioning, heavy excavators and loaders, safety gear, waste management solutions, crushing and screening equipment and much more. Attendees will also be able to see live demonstrations of the latest mining equipment.

There’s a full schedule of seminars and talks across the three days including a safety-themed breakfast to start the event off on day one, the ‘Thought Leadership Panel’ which brings together world-renowned experts who will examine the future of coal and the Queensland Mining Contractor Awards 2016 will also take place at the expo on day two.

QME will also be running a ‘business matching’ program during the event. Participating businesses are to register their interest, and then will be matched by QME staff to other participating businesses based on the business needs of both companies. Paired businesses then conduct private one-to-one meetings at QME.
