We want to thank you for showing up for our show off!

Show Me Wellington 2018 is over – what an awesome day! We had a record number of attendees this year and plenty of new and exciting exhibitors. We hope you walked away with some valuable insights and were able to connect with other event professionals.

Show Me Wellington proved itself as a leading Events and Conference expo that stands out from the crowd when it recently celebrated its 8th birthday.

The expo was attended by more than 600 people throughout the day with a number of new first-time attendees in the mix engaging with the vibrant Wellington events industry.

Exhibitors at this year’s event were encouraged to ‘Think Big’ in their quest to win the new Wellington International Airport-sponsored ‘Best Exhibitor’ prize. Whilst special mentions went to the Wellington Zoo, Sofitel and Shabby Salon stands, Collective Hospitality took out top honours with their ‘juggling plates’ stand earning them flights for two on the newly announced Singapore Airlines route from Wellington to Melbourne.

The prizes didn’t stop there with two further major prizes sponsored by Singapore Airlines, going to attendees that booked conferences or events for 200 people or more. It saw Sandra Julian from Auaha Group and Rosie Rooney from Trade Me each win a return flight from Wellington to Singapore, plus a couple of nights’ accommodation.

Thank you to all those who attended. A great vibe was at this show and it’s one to mark in the calendar going forward.
