Queensland Model Hobbies Expo 2015 - thank you
Sadly, QMHE 2015 is over. We won't be back until August 2016. The Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ipswich City Council for its support, and acknowledge the genorous contributions of our sponsors. Without you, the show simply would not have happened.
QMHE was an outstanding success. The Ipswich community embraced the show at its new home, Just Sports n' Fitness, Redbank, making this year's event our most popular in recent memory.
Mayor Paul Pisasale posted these great images to his Facebook page.
Thank you Mayor Pisasale for your enthusiastic sport of the show, and for opening the event in 2015.
We also recieved some great media coverage, check out this article!
