We are thrilled to offer a variety of options to exhibitors in 2021 with 5 physical expos across the country, and the launch of our all-new Online Digital Expo
February 2021 will see the launch of our new digital platform, to support the 5 nationwide expos.
A feature of this new digital platform will be the NZCE ONLINE DIGITAL EXPO. Providing year round engagement for schools, exhibitors and general public with up-to-date information and news from our wide range of exhibitors and access to a growing range of careers resources and information. This will replace the current magazine supplied to schools, and provide so much more!
This will present many new opportunities for exhibitors to increase their profiles and engage with schools across the country. Adding massive value to the involvement with the physical expos, while maintaining a year round presence as an exhibitor on the NZCE DIGITAL EXPO.
So… lets look at what its on offer!
- Physical – options to attend our popular nationwide expos (now at 5 venues across New Zealand)
- Digital – options to create an online profile on our online digital expo, which includes the invitation to regularly submit your marketing content onto our soon-to-be-released new website and through our many digital channels that reach tens of thousands of students each week. This will be an “always on” platform for 10 months of every year – providing a resource for schools and public to engage with exhibitors across an expanded time frame.
- Careerwise partnership – We are also pleased to announce our partnership with Careerwise a leading service for NZ career advisors that will significantly increase the profile of exhibitors to students.
Bookings are now being accepted on our website, follow this link for booking information and costs per location.
This makes it easy for Expo visitors to follow up with you after meeting you at an expo; to seek and share content previously sought after in our Expo magazines; to enable those seeking a career change to learn more about their options in one easy place and to ensure that our exhibitors can be easily found and reached before, during and after Expos.
We know that schools want this option available, to find and share information easily. We are so excited to be able to share our vision with them and with you as we all start fresh in 2021.
