Business Expo 2015

It is always good to go to the Business Expo. It is a great venue where you not only find potential services, clients but also finding new businesses, organisations and even new technologies, some of which you may not have known about before. These days it is held at the Working Men's Club Rooms at Petone, which I find a more cozy venue than the Horticultural Hall it used to be held at, plus you have plenty of counters for drinks, food and a rest.

I was very surprised to see Wellington Zoo having a stall at the Business Expo for the very first time. It was a reminder that the zoo is not only a place to see animals but can offer venues for entertainment and functions. And 3-D technology has made its way to the Business Expo; the Hutt Libraries stall, for example, was demonstrating a 3-D printer that was making plastic bookmarks. And there were plenty of prize draws, such as a trip for 2 to Nelson, bottles of champagne, hampers, and free offers of business services.
