Porirua Expo proves popular

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

It was a big day for busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions on Satur­day as the best of Porirua was ex­hib­ited at Te Rau­paraha Arena in the 2015 Porirua Expo.

About 5000 at­tended the expo and were in­ter­ested to find out what makes Porirua tick.

Busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions show­cased what they had to of­fer and an in­for­ma­tion site for Trans­mis­sion Gully and Porirua City Coun­cil’s long-term plan were two of the more popular at­trac­tions.

Num­bers at the expo were sim­i­lar to last year, with a steady flow through­out the day.

Membership and events manager of Porirua Cham­ber of Com­merce Aleisha Rouse said vis­i­tors she spoke to en­joyed what was on of­fer and be­lieved there was some­thing for ev­ery­one.

The expo had ev­ery­thing from ca­reers and sports to lo­cal busi­nesses on show.

Rouse said the 2016 expo would also have the theme of hav­ing ev­ery­thing un­der the one roof.

‘‘We want to show off as much of Porirua as we can,’’ she said.
