Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
The Leading Event for the Equipment Rental Market in Australia is back. Although HIRE20 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hire and Rental Industry Association (HRIA) is excited to be bringing HIRE21 to the Gold Coast in 2021.
Over 2 days, HIRE21 will showcase the best that the industry has to offer at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC). This year, we’re seeing unprecedented growth off the back of heavy civil infrastructure spending, so now is a great time to put your best foot forward and promote your message to the industry’s meeting place, as they gather to learn about safety, innovation, business culture and sustainability. So please join us at HIRE21!
