Weekend Parking: 

Please DO NOT park in the main Museum Car Park – this is for visitors…. “don’t be that person and take the piss and park there – leave it for the visitors”

Over the weekend YOU MUST park at the rear of the building. We have had an increase of around 25% on tickets – so we need as many parks available for the public.

Stand Set Up Specs

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


All stands are built with 2.3m high panels (do not construct your display higher than 2.3m).
Walls are 45mm thick, and for those wishing to hang a heavy amount of weight or anything out of the ordinary please contact Kelly – kelly@exhibitionhire.co.nz

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

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 Kelly – kelly@exhibitionhire.co.nz )

If you have something heavy to hang and want to know the best way to do this, contact Julia.

Any damages to walls, flooring or similar will be billed to the exhibitor


The stand will look similar to the picture above, depending on how many walls you have.
Your stand comes as a standard shell scheme with velcro panels, any extras must be pre-ordered, there will be nothing allocated with your stand otherwise.

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.


Triangle Stands – 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.

Aisles (as per our venue H & S policy) –The aisles between stands are legally required to be a certain width to maintain proper access to emergency exits, therefore it is imperative that exhibitors keep within their contracted space and do not encroach into the aisles or block doorways.

Product Showcase *NEW Feature*

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 roughly 400mm high x  450mm wide x  400mm deep or you can book a double slot that is 900mm wide

Costs are as follows:
–   Single Space $45.00
–   Double Space  $80.00

During pack in you would provide us with a display set that we can showcase for the duration of the weekend and then return on Sunday.
An example of how the showcases look can be seen in the image, there are normally 2 – 3 units.

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.

Bonus Extra: Post Expo we will run a Facebook post about your showcase product to our 13,000 + followers.

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 350 “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 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.

  • A prize roughly $250 or greater in value = general marketing + copy of the database as mentioned above (consumer demographics, contact emails etc for your marketing use)
  • A prize less than $250 in value = general marketing and display of the prizes, no database info.

Those entrants wishing to partake in the show prize must agree to having their details forwarded on to participating exhibitors.
