ROTORTECH 2018 was an unprecedented success, attracting 95 exhibitors, including three days of conferences with 30 speakers across some 22 sessions on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Dramatic growth in demand for the event has prompted a move to the Royal International Convention Centre at Brisbane Showgrounds as a larger, more easily accessible venue with world class facilities, helicopter access and external flying demonstrations and networking.
