Marketing Tools & Options

We have a number of options for exhibitors to be involved through extra marketing and promotional activities.
The aim is to give you added exposure at as minimal cost as possible.

Graphics for use on social media – bottom of the page
Electronic Ticket give aways – learn more below

  • NEW Showcase / Product Promo
  • Goodie Bags
  • Show Prize
  • Show Program

Below is more information on each opportunity- if you have any questions please email office@gogreenexpo.co.nz


*NEW* Product Showcase

This will be located at the entry, where ALL attendees will pass on entering and exiting the expo.
A great way to showcase new products or popular products and entice visitors to your stand.

(Visitors have often asked about what new and exciting products are at the show, so hence this showcase introduction)

Each product showcase slot is 32cm high x 50cm wide or you can book a double slot that is 1m wide
Costs are as follows:
–   Single Space (32cm High x 50cm Wide) $75.00
–   Double Space (32cm High x 100cm (1m) Wide) $140.00

A render of how the showcases look can be seen in the image
There is clear perspex at the front, so visitors can see through (but not touch), and white backing on the rear so products stand out
All products will have the exhibitor name and stand location printed on a tag.


Goodie Bags

Goodie Bags are a popular item at our shows, and we always sell out of all bags!
We charge consumers $10 to purchase the bag that includes all the goodies.
(the goodie bag charge covers our cost to set up and offer a free cash out , ATM, to consumers)

There are no costs for exhibitors to be part of this goodie bag, all we require is the following

  • Send us the information on the product, sample or similar you wish to include
  • A requirement is there must be a tangible “goodie” not just a voucher or piece of paper
  • A minimum of 300 “goodies” is required with those unused able to be returned

Yes you can have a tangible good attached to a business card or flyer for your business… we just want consumers to buy a bag containing actual products not just paper and vouchers.


Show Prize

We run our own in house show prize via a computer data entry system running at the expo.
This captures consumer demographics, areas of interest, contact details and more.

Entrants normally total around 1700 total, or 1500 unique entries (non family / couples).

Products & Companies are displayed via large glass showcases at the point of entry, and follow up promotional emails with links and product information.

The main advantage of the show prize is the information collected which you may have access to for your own company use* this will depend on the level of prize offered.

  • roughly $200 or greater value prize = general marketing + copy of the database as mentioned above (consumer demographics, contact emails etc for your marketing use)
  • less than $200 prize value = general marketing and display of the prizes

Show Program

Full colour, A4 large show program that is provided to all visitors on entry.
There are options to advertise in the show program with a display advert to get your company or brand in front of the consumers especially post show – options are 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 or full page

5000 show programs are printed in full A4 size pages (tri fold all A4 sized pages)

There are limited advert opportunities on a first in first served basis.

Stand Set Up Specs

If you have a triangle – this is an example of the use of space – click here

WALLS:
All stands are built with 2.3m high panels (do not construct your display higher than 2.3m).

Panels are coloured charcoal. If you wish to change the colour of your stand; grey, blue, green and red coloured panels can be ordered at an extra cost from Displayworks.


Fixing to your stand’s walls:

You can use:
–           Velcro dots (hook side) we recommend industrial velcro such as www.zelfast.co.nz
–           Pins (must be removed after)
–           Staples (MUST be removed after)

Do NOT use
–           Tape, blue tack etc
–           Nails, tacks, screws (unless you talk with Julia first – kelly@displayworks.co.nz )

If you have something heavy to hang and want to know the best way to do this, contact Damien.
Any damages to walls, flooring or similar will be billed to the exhibitor


STAND SET UP / INCLUSIONS:
The stand will look similar to the picture above, depending on how many walls you have.

Please remember if you want to order the following to do so THROUGH US PRIOR to the show
–           Tables
–           Power
–           Lighting
–           Fridges
–           Eftpos

Any extra furniture can be ordered through Displayworks – they have a catalogue you can view – check it out here

Your products, furniture, signage and all display material must fit into your contracted stand space. Encroachment of displays into aisles is both a fire hazard and unfair to fellow exhibitors.

Important – Triangle stands must not encroach past the front of the stand into the aisles, make sure you have the correct table ordered for your set up, only a 1.2m will fit – see the spec sheet above.
