Countdown to Expo

IHG Expo is back and better than ever!

Join us as we head back to the sunny Gold Coast 8 + 9 February 2022 for a long awaited face to face networking, educational and celebratory event.

Bringing together the very best of independent hardware operators and suppliers, the IHG Expo will once again create opportunities to learn, connect and explore, while also celebrating this amazing, vibrant industry we’re all part of.

But that’s not all…if you can’t make it to the Gold Coast we’ll bring the Expo to you!

Our new hybrid event format allows you to attend in person or take part from the comfort of your store, office or home with much of the Expo broadcast online via our virtual platform, and content remains on-demand until the end of February.

We’re taking a ‘best of’ approach for 2022 – what you love most about our face to face Expos AND the parts you really valued from our Virtual Expo – to create one super-sized event that brings the Expo experience to everyone.

  • Join more than 3000 of your peers at the industry’s premier annual event – in person or virtually
  • Meet with suppliers, learn about the latest products and secure red hot deals
  • Catch up with friends from far and wide…and make new connections
  • Watch our line-up of expert presenters and topical sessions discussing what’s shaping our industry
  • And let’s not forget the memories we make at our nightly social functions!

Of course, your safety remains our priority. You can be assured that all COVID safe practices will be in place and we have contingency plans should we need to adapt our approach.

So get excited. IHG Expo is back and better than ever. We cannot wait to welcome you.

Exhibitor registrations open in August and member/guest registrations in October. Stay tuned for more details.
