Comments from 2015 

“On behalf of Western Sydney University, I would just like to say how much of a pleasure it was to experience such a fantastically organised event that was Book Expo Australia on the 17th and 18th October 2015. The level of professionalism, execution, development and implementation required to bring an event to the level I experience is truly an indication of the leadership and energy brought by yourself.

I commend you on your efforts and look forward to seeing the Book Expo again in 2016.”

Ben Ross | Prospective Student Advisor (Widening Participation)

Student Recruitment Unit,  Western Sydney University

 

“We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your tremendous effort in organizing the Sydney Book Expo 2015 (at Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, on 16th and 17th October).  It was a very successful event!

The Sydney Book Expo 2015 is beneficial to all the visitors; in particular for the enthusiastic readers who had really enjoy the variety of books and publications from different book companies and authors.

We look forward to working with you on the upcoming Sydney Book Expo, and indeed hope that it goes on and on every year!
