Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development Limited (ATEED) has increased the size of its exhibit at this year’s Food Show, and is now inviting NZ businesses to come forward and participate. Depending on its final selection, ATEED can accommodate up to 33 businesses and is now looking for ‘a strong Pacific Island/Indigenous/Maori producer’, as well as ‘niche and artisan producers who have the capability to meet supply and market opportunities’.
“It is important that the businesses participating are there for the right reasons and will be in a position and stage of growth to make the most of the opportunity,” said Wendy Voegelin, growth programme specialist, ATEED.
Exhibiting with ATEED has a cost of $1,000 plus GST, and eligible businesses must meet a set of criteria and complete an online registration form, but they do not need to be registered with ATEED. Companies will have time until June 20th to apply on www.aucklandnz.com/foodshow, and a decision will be notified by the 30th at the latest.
The Food Show is scheduled on July 28-31 at ASB Showgrounds.
