EXPO MESSAGE

In partnership with our national Supplier group, the Queensland Bus Industry Council (QBIC) will be hosting the Australasia Bus & Coach Expo 2017 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre is a world class facility and will attract Bus and Coach Operators from all sectors, Government representatives and other Industry Suppliers, all looking for investment opportunities in quality services and products.

I encourage you to attend and exhibit in 2017, to showcase your product and be part of the only event of its kind in Queensland.

The Expo will kick off Monday morning with delegates having ample time to peruse the Expo over 2 days.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Australasia Bus & Coach Expo 2017.
