Migrant Settlement Made Easy in Auckland
“I wish this Expo was organised 5 years ago!”
Migrant settlement made easy - under one roof - a host of products and services, job fair, settlement resources, plus community groups
“I wish this expo was organised five years ago when I first came here, observed Deepak a visitor to the first ever Migrant Expo in Auckland. “Back then I had to get information the hard way. Here migrants can get a lot of information under one roof.”
An exclusive exhibition fully focussed towards migrant settlement the Migrant Expo was launched in Auckland in October 2004. It is organised by Migrant News – New Zealand’s only newspaper that focuses on the settlement issues of migrants, refugees and international students.
Commenting on the 3rd exhibition held last year, T. Raines, the Marketing Manager for Migrant News said: "The Migrant Expo is clearly emerging as the leading event for information gathering for settled migrants, new settlers, refugees, overseas students and now overseas visitors in New Zealand.
“Visitors can also pick up free copies of the latest Migrant Handbook 2006, Migrant News, Chinese Migrant News and Filipino News at the show.”
