Space available at NZ’s heavy equipment hub
Exhibition sites are now available at the Transport and Heavy Equipment Expo (THE Expo) held at Mystery Creek Events Centre, Hamilton, 7-9 March 2013. The industry event, held every four years, is the only event in New Zealand where heavy equipment enthusiasts can network, purchase equipment and check out new developments in the industry, all at the one location. THE Expo is a snapshot of the transport, heavy equipment, freight, forestry, construction and associated trades, paving the way forward in the sector.
By securing space at THE Expo, businesses have the opportunity to connect with an average of 14,500 trucking devotees. THE Expo Prospectus is available here, with site applications closing on 1 March 2012 for the 2013 event.
It is essential for companies involved in the industry to have a presence at THE Expo, not only to meet with clients and showcase equipment and services, but to also increase sales. At the 2009 event, 24% of exhibitors made over $50,000 each in sales and 10% made over $1,000,000, cementing the benefits of exhibiting at THE Expo.
THE Expo attracts visitors from all over New Zealand and overseas who are seriously involved in the sector. The 2009 event attracted 13,222 visitors, with 85% actively involved in the industry. The inaugural event in 2005 saw 15,592 attendees to the exhibition at Mystery Creek Events Centre.
There are many areas to display vehicles and machinery, additional to exhibitors’ static sites. The Power & Performance Zone is dedicated to demonstrating equipment to potential clients, whereas the Live Drive area allows customers to test drive vehicles on sealed roads.
The experienced Mystery Creek Events Centre team organises THE Expo with the support and input from industry associations; Motor Industry, NZ Truck-Trailer Manufacturers Federation and NZ Equipment Suppliers Association. Media Partners, NZ Truck & Driver and The Radio Network also contribute to the success of the event.
