Bay of Plenty/Waikato Business Expo

Bay of Plenty/Waikato Business Expo

7th March 2018

The inaugural Bay of Plenty/Waikato Business Expo offers a prime opportunity for businesses across the country to maximise exposure to the thriving central region of Tauranga, Hamilton and Rotorua and reap new opportunities. This is a platform to foster the reginal economies, for businesses to showcase their brand, share their story, and be seen. It’s a great way to supercharge your 2018!

“This will be an Expo where business gets done,” says Sharon Giblett. “It’s a great chance to access one of New Zealand’s most prosperous markets.”

Here is some of the excitement it is generating already:

“This is fantastic – just what we’ve needed”

“It’s going to be a huge event for the region. So excited to be exhibiting!”

“Our team can’t wait for this event. If the recent Wellington expo is anything to go by, it will be an outstanding experience and well worth the investment for us.”

The 7 March, 2018 Expo at Trustpower Arena, Tauranga is attracting exhibitors from around New Zealand, as well as within the region. The Expo, which runs from 9am until 4pm, includes half hourly business seminars offering valuable opportunities, insights and tips on how to improve your business, as well as exclusive pre and post Expo exhibitor and sponsor networking sessions.

The organisers, Jigsaw Solutions Group, are planning to showcase more than 130 exhibitors at the Trustpower Arena. Entry is free to visitors, and the organisers are expecting to draw a qualified audience of entrepreneurs and professionals.

The Expo is being supported by the Chambers of Commerce in Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua and Hutt Valley as well as the Tauranga economic development agency Priority One.

“With significant economic growth expected to continue across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty over the next few years, the Expo presents a unique opportunity for those in business in the region, to capitalize on the growth and improve existing relationships as well as cultivate new ones” said Waikato Chamber of Commerce CEO William Durning.

Priority One Chief Executive Nigel Tutt said it was great to see the business expo come into the region and believes it is an initiative that is good for business and our region. “We look forward to it providing an opportunity for BOP businesses to shine,” he said.
