Hooked on first trip to show­case

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

THEY might be first time stall­hold­ers to the Sun­shine Coast Home Show and Life­style Expo but these busi­ness own­ers have quickly reaped the re­wards.

South­ern Fish Ma­rine, a ma­rine me­chan­ics com­pany who ser­vice the Coast, were al­ready con­fi­dent to have joined up.

“It is our first time here and we are lov­ing it so far,” co-owner Wendye Ten­nant said.

“We wanted to pro­mote our re-power cen­tre and our ser­vice cen­tre for the ma­rine in­dus­try. We have just opened a work­shop up.

“Be­ing so close to the en­trance we are lucky and lov­ing it so far.

“There has been a lot of in­ter­est in our dis­play mo­tors, cus­tomers look­ing to up­grade an en­gine.

“We have ac­tu­ally had a lot of peo­ple tell us they didn’t know about us or where we are from. But they do now.”

The Ten­nants’ pop-up store is one of 220 strong, from all things ad­ven­ture, mo­tor­ing, boat­ing and out­doors at the Kawana Sports Precinct.

Aus­tralian Events’ Bob Car­roll said it was not to be missed.

“We have a huge 85m long air-con­di­tioned pav­il­ion that will house over 100 in­door home and life­style dis­plays,

while out­doors will see larger dis­plays of pools, tanks, pa­tios, so­lar and more” he said.

“Ex­pect to see ev­ery­thing from out­door ad­ven­ture dis­plays, the very lat­est in car­a­vans and camper trail­ers, through to boats, kayaks, mo­torhomes and ve­hi­cle ac­ces­sories.”
