Why Exhibit?

Be part of Australia’s only attractions, amusement, leisure and recreation industry trade show where buyers from throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the globe connect with industry manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and consultants.

  • Generate sales leads
  • Launch new products
  • Build brand image
  • Maintain customer relations
  • Conduct Business face to face - the most persuasive form of selling

The AALARA Trade Show represents a cost effective marketing opportunity to showcase your business, products and services to buyers from a vast selection of industry sectors and geographical regions throughout Australasia. The AALARA Trade Show is one of the most effective mediums for establishing and maintaining customer relationships. In an increasingly digital age, the AALARA Trade Show is the only Exhibition of its kind in Australia where buyer, seller and product physically come together - a potent force for your business today and the future.

Buyers come to the AALARA Conference & Trade Show to purchase the latest in amusement rides and attractions, products, equipment, technology and services to grow their attractions business.

New business is written on the trade show floor and it’s a great opportunity to catch
up with existing clients at this important industry event.

The buyer comes to you

AALARA Conference & Trade Show visitors are pro-active rather than passive recipients of your sales and marketing messages. They make a conscious decision to attend, and set aside valuable time to do so. Most are the prime decision makers or specifiers and influencers who it might otherwise be impossible to identify.

3D medium

Whilst an advert, direct mailing or web page may say a product is the fastest, quietest, smallest or most advanced on the market, at the AALARA Trade Show, buyers can see, taste, touch and try your product for themselves. Nothing beats the impact of a live demonstration.

Fast market penetration

You can reach a large proportion of the market in a short space of time. Whether you are looking to raise your company profile, change market perceptions or generate sales leads, you can achieve more in four days at an exhibition than you might otherwise achieve in months.

The AALARA Trade Show is also one of the quickest and most cost-effective means of exploring and entering new export markets.

Individually, the benefits listed are not unique to the AALARA Trade Show, but what is unusual is their combination in a single, highly flexible promotional tool.

Why Sponsor?

The 2017 AALARA Conference and Trade Show is a unique opportunity for your organisation to connect with up to 750 leading amusement, leisure and recreation industry professionals from all over Australia and put your business in the spotlight.
