Following on from successful events, we are pleased to announce that the 2019 Marlborough Parents Centre Parent and Child Expo will be held at the Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000 on Sunday 22nd September 2019.

 

Bookings for exhibition spaces are now open.

 

Exhibit at the Parent and Child Expo 2019
More than 1000 people attend the Expo and has a good reputation among a wide audience of Marlborough parents with children aged 0 – 6 years, as well as grandparents and others looking for family related products and gifts. The Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000 offers lots of space and options for everyone. We will continue to attract visitors by offering goodie bags on arrival and spot prizes.


Marketing your brand to key audiences
We believe it is a strategically important opportunity for you to promote and sell your products and services to a key target market. The Expo will be supported by a strong marketing campaign including print media, online and poster activities. We will also provide exhibitors with opportunities to promote their brands both in the lead up to and during the expo. We will highlight your attendance at the Expo by providing you the opportunity to advertise your business (including your description and your web page or Facebook page) via our Facebook page and website. www.facebook.com/MarlboroughParentandChildExpo/ and www.parentandchildexpo.co.nz


In 2018 we created our website, all exhibitors and sponsors were listed with links to websites and/or facebook pages, this year we intend to grow on that and include all donations and silent auction items and an interactive site layout so people definitely won’t miss you! We will provide both electronic copies of advertising material for use in newsletters, websites, facebook etc as well as paper copies of posters and fliers for you to hand out to potential attendees. Another advertising and marketing option is to advertise in our expo feature in the local newpapers and in our MPC newsletter. Please enquire for further details on these last two items.


Goodie Bags
The Goodie Bags, given out on arrival to the Expo, will provide another excellent marketing opportunity. As an Exhibitor, we would like to invite you to supply a sample or discount voucher of your product or service accompanied by your companies advertising. Numbers are strictly limited. 350 samples/ discounts coupons and advertising flyers will need to be supplied. If you are not an exhibitor, then a fee of $50 may apply depending on the donation made, please enquire.


Silent Auction
We are also seeking items to be used for the Marlborough Parents Centre silent auction and other incentives such as spot prizes. Any donation will be gratefully received with thanks provided in a variety of ways.


Kids Zone
Aimed to provide entertainment for the kids of all ages, allowing families to spend more time at the expo and allowing parents more time to look around the exhibitor sites. We will once again have this area set up, if any exhibitor would like to be a part of the kids zone, please contact us with your ideas and we can talk details.
