There is only over one week remaining until doors open to Mount Isa's MineX 2019 which organisers say will be a first-class exhibition showcasing all spectrums of life and business in the mining sector.
Renowned as one the largest exhibitions of its kind in Eastern Australia and spanning a 20 year plus history, the 2019 event is shaping up to be one for the books.
It takes in three full days including a Saturday for the first time ever, showcasing over 80 individual exhibits and closing out with a free community concert featuring headline act Hurricane Fall, a fireworks spectacular and food, bar and trade stalls.
Highlighting businesses of all sizes, specialising in mining, engineering and associated products and services from across the globe, MineX boasts "something to suit all tastes" says MineX 2019 Event Manager Katie Schrodter.
"With 80 individual exhibitors and close to 100 exhibits locked in, MineX 2019 will truly showcase the latest and greatest," she said.
"People may think we (MineX) are just about services and technology or products specific for mine sites but we are so much more than that. With the industry comes everything that allows it and its workforce to function; from education and health care, through to recreation and catering MineX will include it all".
Attending the expo for the first time, Jayco Townsville partner Brendan Lew and his team are poised to hit the road in coming days to participate; bringing out a full size caravan, pop top caravan and camper trailer from the popular outdoor and leisure brand to fill a large and interactive outdoor exhibitor space.
"We are really looking forward to giving the people of the Mount Isa and surrounds an opportunity to view our range of RV's and caravans without having to travel a great distance," Mr Lew said.
"There are so many fantastic holiday destinations to explore out here and our products are ideal for enjoying a bit of time relaxing.
"The Jayco range of vans are also a great alternative for remote work accommodation so we look forward to showcasing them to MineX visitors."
Free to attend MineX 2019 will also include a host of product specials, a large line up of guest speakers, live on-site broadcasts from popular radio stations, free sky-high crane basket rides on Saturday and more.
Hosted at Mount Isa's Buchanan Park from Thursday May 30 to Saturday June 1 gates open daily at 10am with full exhibitor lists and program details including MineX Rocks concert free shuttle bus times available at www.minexqld.com
