Commenting on the 3rd exhibition, 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 and overseas students.

"This time round, more exhibition booths are featured because the show is gradually evolving into more than a showcase for settlement services. It is becoming more of a family event with something for everybody.²
