AUD $5
Nova 919 Casanovas at the Adelaide Tradie Mate Expo

The only trade show to successfully make MATE an acronym, the Adelaide Tradie Machinery, Automotive & Tools Expo will return in 2017. The Expo is the mullet of trade shows, business at the front and party at the back, combining the newest equipment, tools & accessories for tradies, with stacks of BBQ’s, boats, trailers and fishing gear.


Tradies are not the only ones invited to the MATE 2017 Expo. DIY enthusiasts and home hobbyists can both benefit from the huge range of tools and construction equipment that will scatter the Goyder Pavilion at the Adelaide Showground. The Event timing, from the 26th to 28th of May, will also mean that attendees and exhibitors alike can benefit from the End of Financial Year sales.

The clearing of stock will allow the hundred plus exhibitors that attend the show to put their latest innovations forward to the industry crowds. Visitors will be able to compare tools side by side and brand by brand, measuring which companies are making the best products that suit their needs. There will be a deal for any attendee in the market for hand power equipment, light & heavy machinery, hardware & software, as well as legal, financial, investment and tax advice.

Adelaide Tradie MATE 2017 will help visitors get a grip on their purchases with live demos from professionals, and giveaways from exhibiting companies. The downtime section will also help tradies fill all that spare time they’ll be finding with a zone dedicated to weekend wares for fishing and cooking.


The expo invites audiences of all backgrounds to attend their three day event and with a single figure entry fee that is donated to a local charity, there’s no reason for visitors to say no the the event. Exhibitors are able to register for a site at the event by visiting the Adelaide Tradie MATE enquiry webpage.


From the site: Entry to Adelaide Tradie MATE is $5. We are promoting the entry fee as a ‘High-$5 for Little Heroes’ with proceeds going to the wonderful Little Heroes Foundation.
