Melbourne Expo coming to town on the 16th and the 17th of April, Diversity Expo!
To be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Diversity Expo is the first expo of it’s kind to hit our beloved Melbourne! A two day Expo showcasing the LGBTi community. Presented by Inspired Expos – Australia’s Leading Expo Company, this great Melbourne Expo aims to help the community itself, as well as family and friends, to get in touch with LGBTi friendly businesses and organisations.
“With over 30 years experience in the Exhibition and Advertising Industry, Inspired Expos through Bridal Expos Australia realizes that we need to make a stand. Many in the gay community have been participating and visiting our Expos over the past six years. Inspired Expos are proud to support and provide a service on behalf of the LGBTQi community in Australia.”
“We saw a gap in the current range of expo’s. Many festivals celebrate the LGBTi community, however no exhibitions showcase the many talents and services. As a result Diversity Expo was born” – Tadas Adamavicus, Managing Director.”
