It's expo time again and organisers are predicting this year's event to be bigger and better than ever before.
In 2017 the North West Health Expo, formerly known as the Mount Isa Health Expo, hosted 31 exhibitors from right across the health sector.
This year the event has already secured more exhibitors which have well exceeded the last figure, according to organiser Katie Schrodter.
"The Health Expo is the biggest of its kind in the North West and every year since its inception in 2014, it has just kept getting bigger and bigger.
Already with a larger number of exhibitors than ever before, we're predicting to also have a record breaking number of visitors...Katie Schrodter.
"Already with a larger number of exhibitors than ever before, we're predicting to also have a record breaking number of visitors through the doors which is fantastic news for the health of the region."
With extra floor space at the Mount Isa Civic Centre, the capacity is expected to reach 45 exhibitors at the biennial event.
Exhibitors include all service providers and businesses from the health, fitness or well being sectors.
"Collaboratively our health services cover as far and wide as Mornington Island to Dajarra, from Camooweal to Julia Creek and many places in between." said Health Expo Working Group chair Lisa Davies Jones.
"This will be the fourth hosting of the event and with its growing reputation there is a great deal of enthusiasm from our partners and all involved."
Highlights include appearances by Aboriginal body building champion and Deadly Choices ambassador Rhonda Purcell.
