Wednesday, October 4, 2017

TAURANGA, 20 September 2017:  The regional version of the very successful Wellington Business Expo concept is being launched in Tauranga this week.

The inaugural Bay of Plenty/Waikato Business Expo will offer 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, say the organisers.

Sharon Giblett, Director of Jigsaw Solutions Group, who are organising the event, says the 7 March, 2018 Expo at ASB Arena Tauranga aims to attract exhibitors from around New Zealand, as well as within the region.

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

 Jigsaw Solutions Group has licensed the concept and is drawing on expertise from the Wellington Business Expo where they have been a long-time exhibitor. Wellington’s premier business-to-business expo has been run successfully by the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce for several yearsand is the largest of its kind in the region. Jigsaw Solutions Group is launching the Tauranga event during this week’s Wellington Expo at Westpac Stadium.

 “The Bay of Plenty/Waikato Business Expo will attract businesses from around New Zealand who want to tap into the buoyant Bay of Plenty and Waikato regional economies,” says Giblett, who relocated from Wellington to Tauranga 18 months ago.
