After our second year in Adelaide with the Moreton Hire “A team” as our “end to end” partner in delivering the IHG EXPO for 2019 – they once again showed “how experience really is everything”.

As we move back to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre for the IHG EXPO for 2020 (which will mark our 10th year in partnership with the Moreton Hire team) we are looking forward to once again working with the Moreton Hire “A team” on delivering yet another successful event.

The Independent Hardware Group National Expo is coming to the Gold Coast in February 2020. Contact Moreton Hire today to organise your next large-scale exhibition or exhibition stand today!
