About Australian Events


From humble beginnings in 1987 husband and wife Bob and Gai Carroll have built the Toowoomba-based business into one of the Nation’s largest event management companies. Indeed there would be very few people in Queensland who haven’t been to an Australian Events’ show or expo and very few businesses throughout Australia who haven’t had contact with the company. Bob and Gai’s first foray into events was a Travel Expo in Queen’s Park in conjunction with Toowoomba’s Carnival of Flowers. The Toowoomba Autumn Home Show followed and the rest is history. Today, the company organises fifteen consumer and industry events across Queensland, in all major centres including its home base as well as the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Redcliffe, Nambour, Townsville, Cairns, Mackay, Maryborough, Rockhampton and the Sunshine Coast. The events profile housing and household goods/services, outdoor living, leisure, caravans, camping, outdoor adventure, boating, fishing, motoring and 4×4 as well as industry-based resources, mining, transport, trades, infrastructure and manufacturing.
200,000 patrons/delegates attend Australian Events’ shows and expos each year. Bob and Gai are passionate about local communities and local economies. They see their events as vehicles to stimulate local trade, profile local business by reinforcing the “Shop Local. Buy Local.” message and by promoting community engagement. The economic impact of the company’s activities is difficult to calculate but if you consider its investment in local labour, contractors, venue and equipment hire, advertising and marketing, transport, accommodation and hospitality it would run into millions of dollars. Today Bob and Gai are assisted in their goals by a long-serving management team and many more permanent office staff and casual event staff across Queensland.





Welcome to the 2019 South Queensland Energy & Resources Expo

Toowoomba and the Surat Basin region has come out of the mining boom into one of the most significant infrastructure building programs in Australian history.

That infrastructure boom started with the development of new roads and utilities to service the Surat Basin boom period and phased into innovative private and public sector developments like the building of the Wellcamp International Airport and the government funded Second Range Crossing.

Then came a string of other innovative developments like the Witmack Industrial Park, the world class Pulse Data Centre, Interlink SQ as well as significant investment into facility provisions for the rapidly growing population.

The growth and development of the University of Southern Queensland and other key private and public schools along with the $500M redevelopment of the Grand Central Shopping Complex in the heart of the city has brought significant investment into the city and surrounding townships. Not to forget the $40M North Point Shopping Centre Development, the $16M Quest Hotel development and the $10M redevelopment of the Burke and Wills Hotel and a number of other new accommodation properties and a broad range of new eateries.

These are exciting times and we invite you to be a part of this innovativeevent  as we work hand in hand with the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) to present the 2019 South Queensland Energy and Resources Expo.

This event is very relevant to those involved in the Mining and Energy sectors, engineering and construction, transport and warehousing as well as service and maintenance for all areas of business and industry.

It is enormously beneficial to all those who have a desire to be more competitive, operate more efficiently, have access to world best work and operational procedures and for those who hold a desire to network and learn from other like minded businesses.

My advice is to book your exhibitor space early, book accommodation for your inbound support team and start planning now.

Australian Events


This was the first Expo I have attended where I realised the benefits to my own and other businesses.

Micro Filtration Australia

This year proved that quality not Quantity is the key. We have been exhibiting at The Expo since its inception and this years event is by far the best for us with 42 great leads.

Frontier Voice & Data

We have exhibited at The Expo for the past 4 years and have been more than happy with the leads we have received. Each year we have built new valuable client relationships and had an opportunity to catch up with some of our regular clients who visit the event. The organization and promotion of the event has been very professional and a credit to the organizers. We will definitely be back next year!

Photograve Pty Ltd

The Expo allows us to promote our business and the services we provide to the community and to industry. It allows us to connect with businesses in different industries that may require our services and helps us connect to potential new starters for times of increased recruitment such as now.

Traffic Group Australia Pty Ltd

We exhibited at the Expo as a branding exercise to alert the business people of Toowoomba, Darling Downs and Surat Basin that SEQH operates a branch depot in Toowoomba staffed by Toowoomba people. SEQH is passionate about providing Container transport services to the business sector of the region.
