THE 2018 National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo is set to be bolstered by an exciting new partnership with the Boating Industry Association.
Held on March 16-18 at the Brisbane Showgrounds, the event will be bigger and better than ever thanks to the new collaboration. This year’s show sees the return of the BIA as its members take over the John Reid Pavilion in a display reminiscent of the old Tinnie and Tackle Show.
The BIA was last involved in the show in 2014, and a demand for exposure in the Brisbane area has led to a new partnership for this year’s event. With Queensland laying claim to more registered boats (256,000) and boat licences (694,000) than any other state in Australia, the partnership makes perfect sense.
Event director Paul Mathers said the BIA’s involvement in the expo is great news for enthusiasts. “We’re so excited to have the BIA back on board for this year’s event,” Mathers said. “Not only is it great to have the backing of such a well-respected organisation for the show, but the addition of the BIA Zone adds some real weight to our offering for visitors who want real choices in buying a new boat or marine recreational vehicle. We’re absolutely thrilled to have them back.”
As well as a host of appearances from Australia’s most popular outdoor experts including Pat Callinan, Jase Andrews and Roothy, this year’s show will feature thousands of bargains from all the best 4×4, camping, fishing, boating and outdoor brands. There will also be plenty of action and things to do, with the return of the Eagers Holden Proving Ground, a new and improved interactive Base Camp, the always-popular Action Arena, fishing and 4WD seminars, test drives and 4WD training as well as cooking demonstrations.
