The clock is ticking down to the start of Mount Isa’s MineX event.
The expo has been a feature on the outback calendar for more than 20 years.
It’s run over three days at Buchanan Park from Thursday-week (30 May).
More than 80 individual exhibits will be featured.
The event closes out with a free community concert featuring headline act Hurricane Fall, a fireworks spectacular and food, bar and trade stalls.
The event highlights businesses of all sizes that specialise in supply to mining and engineering, said MineX 2019 Event Manager Katie Schrodter
“People may think we (MineX) are just about services and technology or products specific for mine sites but we are so much more than that. With the industry comes everything that allows it and its workforce to function; from education and health care, through to recreation and catering MineX will include it all”.
Attending the expo for the first time, Jayco Townsville partner Brendan Lew and his team are poised to hit the road in coming days to participate; bringing out a full size caravan, pop top caravan and camper trailer from the popular outdoor and leisure brand to fill a large and interactive outdoor exhibitor space.
“We are really looking forward to giving the people of the Mount Isa and surrounds an opportunity to view our range of RV’s and caravans without having to travel a great distance.
“There are so many fantastic holiday destinations to explore out here and our products are ideal for enjoying a bit of time relaxing.
“The Jayco range of vans are also a great alternative for remote work accommodation so we look forward to showcasing them to MineX visitors.”
MineX 2019 includes a host of product specials, a large line up of guest speakers, live on-site broadcasts from popular radio stations, free sky-high crane basket rides on Saturday and more.
Gates open daily at 10am with full exhibitor lists and program details including MineX Rocks concert free shuttle bus times available at www.minexqld.com
