The Thursday evening cocktail event was extremely well received by the motoring and lifestyle journalists we invited along and they all had nothing but positive comments to make about the event and its “feel’.
Our senior management (including our Board) also enjoyed the event and commented that it was the perfect venue and event to unveil the S-Class.

Every single member of these teams spoke very highly of the event, the attendees , the displays, the quality of the event management.

We fielded many customer enquiries about the new S-Class and received genuine compliments on our choice of Motorclassica as the venue to unveil the new S-Class in Australia.

Australian Construction Equipment Expo, Victoria
The Australian Construction Equipment EXPO (ACE EXPO) Victoria will be held between 12 -14 November 2015 and will transform Melbourne Showgrounds into the must see biennial event for the construction and contracting industry.
Showcasing products and services for the civil construction and earthmoving sector, ACE EXPO Victoria is the place to be. Graders, trucks, dozers, excavators, in fact, everything that digs, dumps, moves or lifts will be on display and those in the industry will benefit from the show specials, onsite demonstrations and free seminar sessions.
Featuring 100+ exhibits and over 225 brands on display, ACE EXPO Victoria is an absolute must for anyone looking to find products, services and construction equipment. Whether it is visiting the expo or participating in the educational program, ACE EXPO Victoria offers something for everyone.
“Whether it was just excellent timing or the stimulus that the industry needed, we have found that the quality of the visitors attending was very pleasing. There were many customers who we spoke to who were well into the buying cycle and the subsequent follow up has resulted in several sales. The VIP lunch was a great success with several high profile customers volunteering that they would probably not have attended had it not been for this event. Then having the opportunity to invite them on to our stand for 20 minutes achieved the result we had hoped… We had at least 2 customers whose post ACE purchase decision was aided by the opportunity to operate our machines in the demo area.”
