Exhibitors are rushing to lock in space for Australia's biggest outdoor expo, the 2013 Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and National 4x4 & Outdoors Show, to ensure their opportunity to showcase the latest and greatest in outdoor and leisure equipment.
Only 20 per cent of floor space remains for what is shaping up to be the ultimate off-road, touring, towing, fishing and boating exhibition to be held at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds from March 15-17, 2013.
'In its eighth year, the co-location of two of Queensland's most popular shows, the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and the National 4x4 & Outdoors Show will be a fantastic event and must for any outdoor enthusiast,' said Jason Plant, Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show Event Manager.
'A record number of people streamed through the gates in 2012 and with the fantastic mix of exhibitors and activities confirmed already were hopeful we can better that figure in 2013.'
For one lucky visitor to the 2013 Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and National 4x4 & Outdoors Show, the outdoor adventure will continue with an Ultimate Adventure Package up for grabs, valued at $15,000. Further details will be released closer to the time.
The Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show will be presented by Club Marine, Australia's largest provider of pleasure craft insurance, and will include magazine chef Bart Beek conducting cooking demonstrations, while Paul Worsteling, renowned angler and host of televisions iFish program, is once again the official ambassador of the Show.
The hugely popular Fishing Expo Stage, Yamaha Supertank and Kids Marine Zone will also return.
At the National 4x4 & Outdoors Show some of the best known names in the industry will exhibit from categories including 4WD Vehicles and Accessories, ATV's and dirt bikes, automotive accessories, safety and recovery gear, GPS and electronics, kayaks, camping equipment, tents and a vast array of camper trailers and off-road caravans.
The TJM AUSTRUCK Extreme 4x4 invitation-only competition, presented by 4WDTV and DirtComp Magazine will again be a feature attraction in the Action Arena and is sure to capture the interest of an anticipated 35,000-strong crowd at the expo's Showgrounds venue.
Also confirmed is the WAECO Outback Stage and a series of meet and greet sessions with some of the 4wd and Outdoor Industries biggest names including Pat Callinan, Roothy and Spida Everitt.
'The 2013 National 4x4 & Outdoors Show is sure to continue on the success of last year's show if the percentage of floor space sold already is anything to go by,' said Paul Morgan, National 4x4 & Outdoors Show Event Manager.
'We've been fielding enquiries and confirming exhibitors and special activities for months now and are really excited about what's been locked in already. Whilst we can't confirm everything now, we will say we do have some surprises in store and exciting news to announce at a later date.'
