Trade Expo 2019



What is Trade Expo?

The Cairns Hardware Trade Expo is a long-standing annual event designed to give back and genuinely thank our valued customers who support our business throughout the year. Cairns Hardware hosts this special night along with many of its key suppliers to offer customers exclusive bargains, latest product information, a major prize draw and more. The event is invitation-only.

How it works?

Step 1. Qualify to receive an invite

Simply spend $500 in one single transaction between 1 July – 31 August 2019 at any Cairns Hardware store to receive an invite for two to the 2019 Trade Expo. Invitations are restricted to Trade Account and Cash Sale Account holders only.

If you don’t have an account and would like to attend, contact Cairns Hardware or your nearest store for an Account Application Form. You can then qualify as per terms & conditions.

Step 2. Receive entries in the Major Prize Draw

There are two ways to receive entries, they include:

BEFORE EXPO: For every $500 spent in one transaction at ANY Cairns Hardware store (Tool Centre, Trade Centre, Bathroom & Kitchen Centre, Paint Centre, Hardware stores, Manufacturing divisions) between 1 July – 30 September 2019, receive one entry into the Major Prize Draw.

AT EXPO: For every $100 spent in one transaction at the 2019 Trade Expo (Wednesday 30 October, 6pm–9pm), receive one entry into the Major Prize draw.

2019 Major Prizes


Q. I’ve spent over $500 - when do I receive my invitation?

A. Trade Expo invitation will be emailed early-September 2019. Fast Passes will be posted via mail upon RSVP.

Q. My business has received two invitations, but I can’t attend because I’ll be on holidays. Can I give the invitations to my mates?

A. If you are unable to attend the Expo, you have the option to RSVP an ‘authorised nominated representative’ who can attend and place orders at the event on your behalf. Your ‘authorised nominated representative’ can also claim a major prize if in the event your entry ticket is drawn. If Cairns Hardware does not have any record or detail of your ‘authorised nominated representative’ prior to the Trade Expo, Cairns Hardware reserves the right to refuse orders, as well as a collection of prizes.

Q. My business is quite large and I would like to bring more than one guest with me to the Expo. How do I get more invitations?

A. The two invitations are for the principal Account holder and one guest only. If you have other staff or friends interested in attending, we encourage them to qualify for an invitation on their own Account or look at opening a new Account.
