Home and Life Expo 'brilliant'

“BRILLIANT – absolutely brilliant,” was how one happy trader described the weekend’s Home and Life Expo.

Ken Burford of Gympie Carpet Court was more than happy with the result and said the expo was a great way for businesses to reach a large portion of the public.

“We had really good (customer) traffic through and received a lot of inquiries. Then we got in here this morning and the phone has been ringing off the wall.”

“We are fully booked for the week with measures and quotes just from the phone calls — not the leads we got at the expo. It’s unbelievable. This is our third show and we’ve never had a response like that.”

Mr Burford said most inquiries were from people with a genuine interest in the products and services on show.

“As I understand it the builders were extremely happy with response they got as well. Most builders we spoke to were very happy with the leads they got. The best thing was most of them already had their blocks of land.

“We’ll definitely be at the expo next year. We’ve already told Michelle we want the same booth next time.”

Expo organiser Michelle Agnew said The Gympie Times and Camp Quality Home and Life Expo got good numbers of people through the door and had great support from local businesses.

“I’d like to extend my thanks to, not only the public for their support of Camp Quality, but a huge thank you to the businesses who put so much effort into showcasing their products and services.”
