$1 Early Bird Tickets to NZ’s Largest Eco Expo Sell Out

$1 Early Bird Tickets to NZ’s Largest Eco Expo Sell out in 2 hours!

After an extremely successful inaugural expo in Wellington with over 125 exhibitors the Go Green Expo is coming to Auckland on April 4th – 6th 2014.

With a large range of exhibitors, products and services this will be a show not to be missed!

The Go Green Expo was created to combine everything from home building and renovation to health and beauty to food and beverage, all under one roof.

“We wanted an expo that would showcase these better alternatives for consumers, and to show consumers that many of these options are complementary, like solar, insulation and architecture,” says Damien Hochberg, event manager.

More than 120 exhibitors will showcase their products and services at the expo. Organic food and wine will be available.

“The best part of the Go Green Expo is that people are able to come and sample food and beverages, and also find a range of expert opinions, all under one roof,” says Damien.

“We’re trying to break down the barriers around the perception of sustainability being a niche market by targeting the general consumer,” he says.

Society today is demanding a healthier and more environmentally responsible lifestyle in response to a real concern for our well-being and that of the world we live in. However, navigating your way around the growing range of products and services available can be quite a difficult task.

The Go Green Expo has been created to take the sweat out of your steps and provide you with a 'one stop shop' on what is available, where you can find them, why they are better and who are the genuine players.
