Go Otago Calls to Businesses for 2010 Event

MEDIA RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


13/11/2009


Go Otago has set its date and will be held on Sunday 21 March 2010 once again at the Taieri Agricultural Park. Go Otago is a chance for Otago-based businesses and organisations to showcase their products and services to a wide audience. Exhibitors and participants for the 2010 event are currently being sought.


“If you’re an Otago-based business or organisation wishing to showcase your products or services then this is a unique opportunity not to be missed. We are now taking registrations for the 2010 event and are calling for the support of all stallholders, businesses and entertainers.” said event co-ordinator Victoria Bunton from Sequel Events.


Go Otago celebrates Otago Anniversary by incorporating entertainment, exhibits and activities in a fun family day out. The event is all about celebrating the region and showcasing what it has to offer to the local community. Past events have been extremely popular and the 2010 event will build upon this success.


A feature of the 2010 event will be the return of the popular Big Dig Children’s Event. Children will dig for tags in the 30m of sawdust which are then redeemed for prizes. Otago businesses are currently being contacted to donate prizes to this event.


In 1999, a group of Dunedin citizens formed a not for profit Incorporated Trust (Go Otago Exhibition Society) whose aim was to initiate a charitable event to uplift and inspire Otago people to celebrate Otago Anniversary Day in 2000. This event has since been successfully run biennially by the voluntary committee and event co-ordinator.
