PRIMEX has a comprehensive and long-standing Community Engagement Program. The event has charitable causes that receive vital funds and exposure through PRIMEX. However, the expo also provides ongoing opportunities to industry individuals and groups through numerous sponsorships.

PRIMEX annually celebrates community engagement through a variety of industry competitions, seminars and presentations. PRIMEX also supports many Northern Rivers businesses by using their services to assist in the successful delivery of PRIMEX Field Days and its associated activities.

Charity Support

Tier One:

Northern NSW Local Health District Richmond Specialist Breast Care Nurses

The Northern NSW Local Health District Richmond Specialist Breast Care Nurses provide information, education and support to patients and their families. They work within the Community to see people in both public and private hospitals, in specialists’ clinics and in patients’ own homes, as well as working with a specialist team of Doctors and Allied Health Staff to support women with both early and advanced breast cancers. They also provide a valuable link to connect patients with other services they may need.
Breast cancer detection has more than doubled in the last 20yrs, with breast cancer being the most common cancer diagnosed in women in Australia.

This year alone, an estimated 18,235 Australian Women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer, meaning that approximately 50 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer each day. Advances in treatment and care, as well as improvements in the detection of breast cancer, mean that Australia has one of the best breast cancer survival rates in the world. New projections by the Cancer Council of Australia estimate that 359,000 people will be living with or beyond breast cancer by 2040 in Australia.

Black Dog Institute

Black Dog Institute are pleased to be a charity partner with PRIMEX for its fourth year. With 2020 being a difficult year for everyone, the mental health of Australians has been more prevalent than ever. Partnering with PRIMEX has meant Black Dog Institute have been able to connect with the wider northern NSW community and build relationships to help raise awareness on this very critical topic. Despite the postponed 2020 event, PRIMEX and Black Dog Institute were able to deliver a range of online mental health education programs and resources to the network and community. This included; Expert Insights Panel event – Tips and Tools for Tough Times which was held in June 2020 and hosted by lived experience presenter Wayne Wigham and clinical expert Dr Sadhbh Joyce; and an online presentation for World Suicide Prevention Day with the Lismore based collaborative and StandBy to support their local face-to-face and online event.

Black Dog Mental Health Institute is a research led, solution and program driven organisation committed to the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental illness and the reduction of suicide rates in our community.

Driven by science, compassion and action, we transform our research and knowledge into easily accessible, practical programs and services across the broader community. This linking of science and solution means the work we do can have an immediate effect in preventing and treating mental illness in our entire community, and specifically to those most vulnerable, aiming for broader wellbeing for all.
