Exhibitor Testimonials.

A major part of our shows overall success has been our partnership with exhibitors. When you come to the show you see this in their passion, excitement and energy they bring every year.

Our partnership with our exhibitors and industry leaders has enabled the show to become the largest construction expo in Australia. Don’t just take it from us, here are some of the testimonials from our exhibitors over the years.

“I want to thank Marti and the team who are responsible for running the Diesel and Dirt Expo. As exhibitors we find they go out of their way to be helpful and are a pleasure to deal with. Their hard work behind the scenes makes the expo run very smoothly. We exhibit at many field days and expos and while we have decided to cut back our attendance at the majority of these, we see the Diesel and Dirt as great value and it remains a definite on our yearly calendar.”

"Auger Torque Australia is proud to have been part of Diesel Dirt & Turf since the very beginning. DDT is the perfect platform to launch our latest innovations and connect with our customers. DDT, unlike many other trade shows in Australia, works because it was created by the earthmoving industry, for the earthmoving industry. Having won best large stand and best stand at the show in 2019, we are excited to return in 2020 to showcase our ever increasing range of high quality earthmoving attachments”

The numbers through the gates were solid on all three days and didn’t stop from open to close. The Expo showcased a wide variety of industry related equipment and attachments, all the exhibitors put a lot of time and effort into their stands and this meant visitors had plenty to see and do in a high-quality arena. The camaraderie amongst the exhibitors and organisers meant the show was very successful, well run and organised. Congratulations to the DDT team and all of the exhibitors on a very successful 2017 event and we look forward to the next Expo.”
