Showcase your business: Exhibitor applications open now!

The Porirua Love Local expo is a showcase of what our community has to offer. The Council, supported by the Chamber, is supporting Porirua's small businesses - when we buy local, the money stays local.

For this Love Local Expo, we are looking for food, craft, information, community groups and business exhibitors. And best of all, participation is free. Please note that this is open to Porirua-based businesses only.

This must-attend event will be held Saturday 15 August at Te Rauparaha Arena, with doors open to the public from 10am to 4pm.

Being an exhibitor gives you your own space to meet and network with the community and display your brand, products, projects and equipment with the maximum exposure to foot traffic.

Within the exhibition area we are encouraging you to be creative in engaging consumer interaction using prize draws and other lead-generating activities.
