Back in Mackay and bigger than ever 

19-21 July 2022 

Mackay, Australia 


Queensland's mining industry has weathered the last two years particularly well, and the scale of this year's Queensland Mining & Engineering Exhibition (QME) is a strong reflection of the industry's buoyancy. As QME returns to Mackay from 19-21 July, the industry's innovation, excellence, and world-class capabilities are again on display.

With a packed roster of over 250 exhibitors, including Hastings Deering, Komatsu, Mastermyne, RYCO Hydraulics, Volvo Penta, ABB Australia and Fulton Hogan, QME is certainly the largest to be held in Mackay for several years.  

Beyond the exhibition floor, QME features a free-to-attend Seminar Series sponsored by Komatsu, live demonstrations and presentations, plus exclusive industry events like the QME Opening Party and the Queensland Mining Awards. Exhibition Director Samantha Martin is excited to see the industry's engagement with the full QME program.  

"QME 2022 is breaking records in so many ways – our outdoor space is set to be nearly 300% larger than QME 2018, and we've got exhibitors from all over Queensland and Australia who are so eager to meet with customers face-to-face once again," said Ms Martin. 

Industry hubs at DSEI 2021

The Opening Party on Tuesday 19 July - hosted by QME in conjunction with the Queensland Resources Council – is expected to attract hundreds of guests and will be sponsored by Hastings Deering. 

It's not just industry suppliers exhibiting at QME – major mining companies can be found in the Mining House Pavilion, including Anglo American, BHP, Bravus Mining & Resources, Glencore, Multicom and Whitehaven Coal.  

Anyone participating in or supplying to Queensland's mining industry is welcome to visit the three-day event. In particular, engineers, management and site personnel will benefit from the program and exhibition. 

QME will be held from 19-21 July at the Mackay Showgrounds. To register for free, visitqmeexpo.com.au
