Goodie bags popular at expo
Plenty of goodie bags have been filling up with lots of treats, in readiness for the New Plymouth Women’s Lifestyle Expo which takes place at the TSB Stadium in New Plymouth this weekend.
Renee Murray from NZME Events, organiser of the expo, says the goodie bags have become famous with expo visitors who love a bargain.
“As always, the bags this year are a mystery bag including a mascara, a fashion scarf and much more,” Renee says.
“Priced at only $20, these bags are sure to be a hit with expo visitors.”
She says the goodie bags do sell out so it is a case of get in quick or miss out.
While the goodie bags are always popular, Renee says another popular feature of the expo is the Taste Zone.
“Visitors can sample goods from martinis and artisan bread to pate and much more.”
A new feature this year is guaranteed to be a hit with any brides attending the show.
“This year we also have Etcetera Bridal coming to the show with a huge bridal gown sale upstairs at the show.”
Renee says this is the second year the expo has come to New Plymouth since NZME took over the show.
“The show has been running for around 20 years — the original owners used to bring the show to New Plymouth but stopped around 15 years ago. When NZME purchased the shows they decided to reinstate the New Plymouth one last year.”
With around 130 companies involved, the show really does bring something for every woman, says Renee.
