Expo sure to be a hit

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

THE great out­doors and the the North­ern Ter­ri­tory go to­gether like pie and sauce, fish and chips and biki­nis and beaches.

So there’s no doubt an expo that fo­cuses on out­door liv­ing will ap­peal to ev­ery man, woman and their dog.

The Ter­ri­tory can look for­ward to a ma­jor boost to the events cal­en­dar with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Dar­win 4WD, Car­a­van & Out­back Camp­ing Expo this year.

The expo, sched­uled for May 11-12, will fea­ture the lat­est ad­vances in the 4WD, tour­ing, camp­ing and leisure life­style in­dus­tries through a large-scale dis­play, live demon­stra­tions and in­dus­try sem­i­nars over two ac­tion-packed days.

Expo or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to cre­ate a spec­tac­u­lar car­ni­val-type at­mos­phere at the Dar­win Show­grounds with lo­cal food and en­ter­tain­ment ca­ter­ing to the whole fam­ily.

For lo­cal man and event di­rec­tor David Evans, the expo is a labour of love.

‘‘If you ap­pre­ci­ate the life­style here in the Top End as I do, the expo will be of great in­ter­est’’ Mr Evans said. ‘‘We have con­firmed ex­hibi-

tors from ev­ery state of Aus­tralia and this has been really en­cour­ag­ing.

‘‘Both lo­cal and in­ter­state busi­nesses see the op­por­tu­nity within our lo­cal mar­ket and they are keen to of­fer great deals to ev­ery­one who at­tends the expo.’’

Or­gan­is­ers hope the expo will be­come an an­nual event, unit­ing sup­pli­ers and re­tail­ers with a cap­tive tar­get au­di­ence while pro­vid­ing a ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We are now wel­com­ing lo­cal and in­ter­state busi­nesses to take ad­van­tage of get­ting in­volved in the expo early,’’ Mr Evans said.

‘‘We’re also keen to hear from com­mu­nity groups that wish to raise funds by as­sist­ing with the de­liv­ery of this large-scale event.’’

Out­door ex­pos are pop­u­lar in other states of Aus­tralia and Dar­winites will cer­tainly wel­come the May event
