Trade Exhibitors

Ensure your company's exposure to the entire Australian film industry

Trade Exhibitors

When it comes to the biggest blockbusters, the latest trends, the newest technologies and accumulating the entire industry in one place at one time, only the Australian International Movie Convention delivers.

If your company supplies the cinema industry with any product or service - whether it relates to the projection room, auditoriums, candy bar, staff or the cleaners - then you should have a presence at the AIMC - the only event on the Australian film calendar that brings all the decision-makers together in one place at one time.

In 2014 we have designed Trade Show Packages so you can not only take part in the benefits of the AIMC Trade Show, but also utilise the registration component to network with delegates during all the program activities including the seminar sessions, screenings and evening functions.  Our packages are economically priced, provide additional signage and marketing benefits, and will suit every budget.  The registration component can be used by one person or shared between staff members over the five days of the convention.

For more information on all the benefits and prices, download our TRADE SHOW PACKAGE INFORMATION KIT  and TRADE SHOW BOOKING FORM.



 Why do our trade exhibitors keep coming back?

"As an exhibitor at the AIMC we have found it a really effective way to get in front of our target market and a key opportunity to showcase our cinema seating products. The convention management have been very supportive in making the event as successful as possible."  Murray Kennedy, Managing Director, Alloyfold

  • 2015 Fees


    In response to many requests for an all-inclusive package, we have restructured our Trade Show to now offer a range of packages that cover trade booth, delegate registration and brand marketing.  Our packages are economically priced to suit your budget.  Download our TRADE SHOW PACKAGE INFORMATION KIT  for full details on pricing and benefits.

    Staff manning trade booths need not be registered convention delegates but are not entitled to attend Convention screenings, seminars and functions. However, staff names will need to be provided to AIMC so name badges can be prepared to allow access of your personnel to your trade booth.

Full registration costs AUD$1,155.00 (inc GST) if paid by 28 August 2015 or AUD$1,430 (inc GST) if paid after 29 August 2015.  Trade personnel registering to attend all convention activities will receive 10% discount off full registration prices.  Please email to obtain a registration form.

    Security will be provided to the Trade Exhibition area during opening hours for the four days of the event.







  • Scanning

    AIMC uses scanning devices to provide information on delegate attendances at the various sessions and functions throughout the convention.

    Should your company wish to track visitors to your trade stand you can hire your own tracker which allows you to scan the delegate's barcode, which is then converted to their name and company details, saving you time in manually keeping track of all visitors to your stand. You can download your leads at any time so that you can commence your follow up.

    There are a number of different trackers and options available for hire. Please contact Graham Tienan at or phone +61 7 3397 3304 for more details.



    Updated February 2015

  • Delegate Satchels

    Trade Exhibitors may use the official convention Delegate Satchels as a means of delivery of company literature, samples and promotional items to all delegates .

    We have discovered that delegates are most likely to remember your company if you provide them with a quality item rather than a paper flier which sadly seems to be the first item discarded!

    If you wish to use this service please advise Graham Tienan by 30 August 2015.

    Quantity to be packed = 850 items.

    Items for inclusion should be delivered to:
