We were very happy with the quantity and quality of visitors that came through our stand over the few days... Again I just wanted to let you know we enjoyed being back at the show, and ... I am very comfortable in saying we’ll be back in full force next year.

"First time attending the show and had a great time. The kids and I left the wife at home and travelled 4 hours to get there. It was well worth the trip. The kids loved the action arena and meeting Graham and Shauno. I loved looking through the accessories I was told not to buy before we left home (but I forgot about that). Well put together show and we'll laid out. Will definitely be back next time."
"I really enjoy the shows there are always plenty of new products and the businesses are always helpful and informative."

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.”
