North Port Events, the New Zealand company behind the
launch of Fine Food New Zealand, is now also the official NZ agent
for the Australian Fine Food shows.
The family of Fine Food shows are arguably Australasia's largest
foodservice, retail, and hospitality trade events, with shows in
Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and now Auckland plating up the
latest products and services from bakery goods, equipment, food and
drink, to furniture, hotel supplies, and tableware.
"We're already at 70 percent capacity with exhibitors for Fine
Food New Zealand, which is fantastic, and now we can help NZ
exhibitors expand their presence in the Australian market and
further strengthen trans-Tasman business links," says Dona White,
CEO Of North Port Events.
"Fine Food New Zealand is already benefiting from its massive
exposure to the Australian and international markets with about 20
percent of our exhibitors coming from Australia, Italy, the USA,
and Asia. On top of that, about a quarter of our visitor
pre-bookings are being made by people from Australia, the USA,
Malaysia, and China."
Kiwi exhibitors booked so far include Allpress Espresso (coffee
roaster), River Farm (boutique winery), Kapiti Cheese, The Pastry
House, Ceres (organics), NZ Fresh Cuts (salad greens), and
Telegraph Hill (premium olive products from Hawke's Bay).
Exhibitors from overseas include the Southern United States
Trade Association, the British Consulate, Imperial Tea (Sri Lanka),
and Pantainorasingh Manufacturer (Thailand).
All up, White expects to feature about 250 exhibitors at Fine
Food New Zealand and attract between 5000 and 6000 registered trade
