Calling all businesses based in and around the Wellsford area – the town’s first ever Business Expo will be held at the OWL Community Hub on Saturday, September 30.
The event is designed to be a public showcase for local goods and services.
The day will be divided into two parts – the first, from 10am until 12 noon, is a business to business session, including speakers. Then, from 12 until 3.30pm, the doors will open for the public to see what businesses there are throughout the district.
Organiser Beth Stone says the event is designed to showcase the wide range of Wellsford businesses and products, especially those that are unique to the area. She says it’s a great opportunity for local businesses to meet up and see how they might work together and support each other.
“This is a business expo, not a market,” she says. “It is expected that some businesses will have samples, or they may have small amounts of goods for sale, but the overall aim of the day is for businesses to create ongoing opportunities and forward orders.”
Entry to the expo is free for all exhibitors and the public, though exhibitors are asked to bring food for a shared lunch before the public session.
Priority will be given to local businesses from Wellsford, Tapora, Te Hana and Tomarata.
