Australia’s first ever all-encompassing adventure expo has been confirmed to return to Melbourne Showgrounds on May 29-31, 2015

The inaugural event, which was hailed by the industry as a massive success, was held on June 20-22 and provided consumers with a weekend of non-stop action, demonstrations, seminars and workshops.

While over 23,000 visitors experienced the first ever Explore Australia Expo, the 2015 event promises to deliver an even bigger experience.

With many exhibitors already confirming their attendance for the 2015 Explore Australia Expo Event Organiser Simon Christie said the event would continue to grow.

'The overwhelming support from exhibitors and visitors for the 2015 event has be incredible,' Christie said.

'The 2014 Explore Australia Expo hits its target market and exhibitor feeling was that the quality of visitors resulted in higher than normal conversion rates for sales.

'We are well underway with our plans for the 2015 event which will be even bigger again.

'Our 2014 initiatives such as the Seminar Hub and Channel 31 Fishing Stage were extremely popular with show visitors and will definitely be back in 2015. Most presentations were filled to capacity and the level of content and the professional delivery was unequalled,' Christie added.

Kaymar National Sales Manager, David Brickhill said the inaugural Explore Australia Expo delivered incredible results.

'The Explore Australia Expo was a great show,' said Brickhill. 'We released a brand new product for KAYMAR and through promotion of the show we had a great result.

'We experienced good feedback from customers which related to great sales in both ranges in the KAYMAR product group.

'It was great to see leaders of the industry all in one place. We will be back next year for sure and can’t wait to be apart of the Explore Australia Expo again,' he added.

The Explore Australia Expo marked a major milestone for leading 4x4 modifications outfit 4X4 Obsession, as the first consumer show the company had participated in over 10 years.

4x4 Obsession Owner and Manager, Brett Johnson said the event exceeded all expectations.

'Our sales figures and exposure far exceeded our expectations for the weekend,' Jonson said. 'I have refused to do shows for the past 10 years, but this expo has changed my point of view, so I will definitely be back next year.
