guest speakers talking at the Queensland Mining Expo

Mining in Queensland has recently been given a huge stimulus in the form of new jobs for the BHP sites that litter the sunshine state. This wave of mining resurgence will have a positive impact on the Queensland Engineering and Mining Expo 2018, which is already one of the most established industry expos within the state.


The year plus countdown until the next QME will give the Queensland mining industry some time to adapt and develop to this year’s changes. The Expo, which has earned its reputation for engaging and directing industry specialists and leaders, has grown with the industry and will return next year with an air of re-invigoration.

The 2016 outing combined hundreds of mining tool and supply producers, exhibiting and showcasing their latest technical devices and solutions to crowds of engineers, site managers, superintendents and procurement staff. The event flooded the Mackay Showgrounds with an endless bag of mining tricks and machines.

Becoming an industry market the QME has worked to improve its utility. With the addition of live demonstrations, networking opportunities and educative events, Queensland’s biggest mining expo can now reach even broader markets. The expo has refocused on developing professional skills, educating the industry and powering business portfolios.


QME caters to all tiers of mining professionals. From decision-makers to machinery operators, the expo offers services to every sector that operates within the mining field. The diversity of mining work means that even those involved within agriculture, construction and manufacturing industries may find a reason to attend QME. The space within the venue however is limited, so any interested companies should register at the QME exhibitor site to avoid disappointment.
