About our events

INTRODUCTION

Established 15 years ago Mecca promotes building suppliers to a network of contacts who are architects, interior designers, building designers, developers, project managers, builders and others. Mecca has established personal relationships with specifiers throughout Australia and New Zealand and works closely with associations such as RAIA, HIA, BDA and Property Council.

PRE SHOW MARKETING

Exhibitors’ company logos and branding are featured on a promotional flier that is sent to Mecca contacts 3 weeks prior to the event. Further regular follow ups by the Mecca team and reminders are undertaken to contacts as the event draws closer.

THE EVENT
