Trade exhibition, sponsorship and advertising


Maryborough Music Conference began in 2001 and with continued growth is now recognised as Australia’s premier music educator’s conference. The conference covers all aspects of music education, including instrumental and choral conducting, local curricula, pedagogy, inclusion, indigenous perspectives, technology, resources and more, including a trade exhibition that showcases the latest in products and services.

The conference regularly brings together over 800 music education delegates, trade delegates and nationally and internationally renowned presenters, providing an unparalleled opportunity for networking of music educators, musicians and the music industry within Australia. Our sponsors and  trade exhibitors play a significant role in the overall success of the conference.

What are the benefits of participating as a sponsor, trade exhibitor or in advertising?


The Maryborough Music Conference is Australia’s largest music education conference and caters for a diverse audience of music educators and professionals. Delegates register from both government and private sector schools, community organisations and private studios from both Queensland and across Australia.


The Maryborough Music Conference hosts over 800 patrons on site over three days and offers unparalleled opportunities to network with delegates, national and international presenters and industry representatives.


Trade exhibitors and sponsors enjoy a range of opportunities to showcase their products and services, including acknowledgement of sponsored sessions, opportunities for advertising and banners in sponsored sessions, promotion via the conference app and print program and access to technology via the conference app for lead capture and social networking.

How do I register my interest as a sponsor, trade exhibitor or in advertising opportunities?

Organisations and individuals interested should complete an Expression of Interest to be first to receive updates and trade invites for the next Maryborough Music Conference via email.

Trade exhibitors

All exhibitors are housed in a single extensive trade pavilion with ample space. Traders have the option to purchase a single, double, triple or quadruple booth. Outside conference hours, the trade pavilion is protected by on-site professional security officers.

Scheduled time is allocated in the conference program for delegates to peruse trade exhibitor's stands at various times throughout the conference. All trade exhibitors have access to the conference app, which will allow for direct lead capture, promotion of mini presentations and special offers via push notifications, a dedicated page for each exhibitor with your logo/photo, information and contact details, the streamlining of exhibitor prize draws and the involvement of our valued trade partners in the social media activity.

Booth partnering

Single booth only—Trade exhibitors may partner with another company subject to the approval of the conference organisers.

Booth positioning

Although requests will be considered, booth positions will be allocated at the discretion of the conference organisers.

Collateral for satchels

From 2023, to protect the environment and reduce waste, the conference will no longer accept collateral or flyers to be placed in delegate satchels.  Trade exhibitors are asked to keep collateral for distribution at their booths during the conference.  For other organisations, we encourage advertising through the Conference App (see Advertising opportunities below).

Sponsorship opportunities

The Maryborough Music Conference offers the opportunity to partner with organisations as sponsors for cash or in-kind sponsorship, including supporting presenters and conference sessions, or providing goods and services.  All sponsors will have their company name and logo displayed in the print program on the Sponsor page and be included in the Sponsor tab on the Conference App.
