International ATGE Hardware, Tools & Grinding B2B/F2B Expo Comes to Brisbane

With live events having come back into full swing, it is not surprising that Brisbane, which will host the Olympics in 2032, is attracting a lot of industry events and expos.

On the back of the World Mining Congress held in June and most recently, the FIFA Women’s Soccer World Cup, the river city is set to play host to yet another unique international event, the inaugural Australian Hardware Tools & Grinding Expo, the largest B2B/F2B event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and the 5th largest in the world.

With the manufacturing, engineering, construction, steel, stone, and even mining industries as well as a wide scope of trades relying on machines, equipment, and consumables across hardware, cutting, grinding, polishing, and abrasive, the Brisbane Convention Centre on South Bank will accommodate well over two hundred exhibitors from around the country and abroad come the 4th – 6th December 2023.

Over 6,000 visitors are expected to turn up to learn about the latest innovations, inventions, automation, and technology, and to access these directly from distributors and manufacturers. This means, registering early to get your tickets is a must.

While attending is free for industry professionals, buyers, experts, up-and-coming talent, and students alike, the Industry Forum and presentation are sure to draw a crowd with only limited seating available.

There will also be a range of special events covering everything from grown Diamonds to the latest industry trends, from safety and risk-minimisation to a Buyers Forum and presentations and workshops from over 30 international speakers and presenters.

Event organiser, Dever Yang said, “We have been receiving a lot of inquiries from exhibitors from around Australia and many manufacturers from abroad, especially from China. So, the pallet of materials, cutting and grinding solutions, automation, and machinery for manufacturing, fabrication, and more will be extensive”.

“While we still have some expo booths and sponsorship opportunities available those wishing to exhibit need to hurry to secure their stand”, he added.

The event has attracted a lot of interest from industry experts, leaders, and tradies, and of course, there will be a contingent of exhibitors covering support services, everything from workplace safety, fatigue detection, and education, to industry bodies, chambers of commerce, finance, technology, and automation, so there will be something for everyone.

The Australian Hardware, Tools & Grinding Expo is also hosting a series of special events during the expo, including a Welcome Evening function (ticketed event) with live entertainment, Grown Diamonds Forum, Buyers Meet, networking sessions, and the official Opening Ceremony, for more details, and to register your free ticket or to book your exhibition booth, log onto
