Our Story

A Passion for Exhibitions

NQ Exhibitions was established in 1985 when Don Neate created the first exhibition panels for the Cairns Show. Don could see an emerging market and steadily grew the company’s stock to match his prediction of growth. Don’s vision was carried on after the business was sold to his daughter Donna and her husband Peter Anderson in 1996.  They went on to acquire the largest range of exhibition hire equipment in Tropical North Queensland. This coincided with the completion of stage one of the Cairns Convention Centre which saw the solidification of the exhibition and conference industry in northern Australia.

In 2014, Beth Anderson and her partner Patrick Williams realised their dreams of owning a company and took over the family business heralding the dawn of a new era. A dynamic couple, Beth and Patrick have solid experience with a combined work history of 13 years in the business prior to taking ownership.
