On February 11, The Wellington Convention Bureau will showcase Wellington to the World .
Wellington Convention Bureau Sales Manager Martin Boland says the event is designed to give locals who plan meetings and events of all kinds the opportunity to inspect venues and meet service providers on-site.
A total of 72 businesses will be represented at 42 venues during the day.
Wellington On Show is a natural progression from the successful Wellington Conference and Events Expo run by the Wellington Convention Centre each October, Mr Boland says.
“The expo gives event planners the opportunity to find out what’s available and now Wellington On Show will allow them to see and experience it, without having to schedule meetings or arrange transport.”
Free transport between key venues, including up the Wellington Cable Car, will be provided for registered participants. Over 100 people signed up within 24 hours of event details being released to industry contacts, Mr Boland says.
Wellington On Show participants can be in to win one of 36 prizes, and events throughout the day will include cooking demonstrations by Martin Bosley and Ruth Pretty, and a South American carnival at the Opera House.
Wellington On Show is being held on Thursday February 11, 10am-3pm.
Throughout the day partners will also have their own promotions and entertainment. From a Zest Food Tour to a brunch with Martin Bosley at Chaffers Dock Function Centre, there will be plenty of options on offer. Here is a list of the exhibitors showcasing themselves as well a list of special promotions running through the day.
There will be a hop on, hop off shuttle service between the key venues for those that don’t wish to walk – and it's free! Here is a map of where exhibitors are showcasing and the shuttle service operating on the day.
