Unlock the Past has run expos since mid 2009 in various capital cities and regional centres. Major expos under consideration from 2012 are

Each expo is run over two days (Friday and Saturday) and will feature:

  • A large exhibition 50-70 exhibitors - a wide variety of local state and national organisations, business and societies in the history, genealogy & heritage fields
  • Two streams of presentations throughout by leading Australian and overseas presenters - main talks, workshops product demonstrations etc.
  • A Research Help Zone with a team of experts offering expert advice and demonstrations on a one to one basis
  • Expo special offers, prizes etc. - usually totalling several thousand dollars

Unlock the Past expos are only held where there is good support from the major partner organisations in the state concerned.
