There are around 20 trade shows in New Zealand. Due to the geographical location most trade shows in New Zealand do not have a great relevance for international exhibitors. Most of the trade shows in New Zealand with international relevance refer to food processing and packaging equipment, food, agriculture and general industrial equipment.
ExpoDataBase lists four trade shows in New Zealand held in Auckland and one trade show which takes place in New Plymouth, the trade show New Zealand Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference.
New Zealand’s largest and most important exhibition centre is located in Auckland: the ASB Showgrounds. Fine Food New Zealand, one of the internationally renowned leading trade shows in New Zealand, takes place at this centre. This trade show is organized by Diversified Exhibitions Australia and North Port Events.
In 2010 around 240 exhibitors presented their company and products on Fine Food New Zealand – International Food, Drink and Equipment Exhibition. This trade show was attended by approximately 5734 trade visitors, who came to discover the latest trends and innovations of their industry.
As sponsor New Zealand’s ASB Bank provides financial support for ASB Showgrounds. Within a programme for expansion and modernization of this centre for trade shows in New Zealand large event halls with a total capacity of 10,000 square metres and an outdoor area of 15,000 square metres were completed in spring 2007.
