Go Green Expo: Auckland’s Biggest Ever Eco-Expo


Everything you need for better living – 5-6 April, ASB Showgrounds

Discover exciting new choices at NZ’s largest organic and sustainable living show, from organic skin care to solar power, from local beers to fair trade toys, from ethical investments to electric bikes and cars! The Go Green Expowww.gogreenexpo.co.nz brings you everything you need for better living, at one huge show.

New Zealanders are hungry for information about green products and services, with the Colmar Better Business research 2013 stating that 92% of New Zealanders and 94% of Gen Y consumers want to have all the facts and information so they can make intelligent decisions about the environment and sustainability. 80% of Kiwis believe that what they do to be sustainable makes a difference to the quality of life for future generations.

This is reflected across our country by the organic produce market showing 25% growth in the past three years, Fair Trade sales rising by 24%, and 24% of New Zealanders eating a vegetarian meal at least once a week, and growing some of their own fruit and veges.

With more exhibitors than any other eco-expo, the Go Green Expo aims to bring sustainable brands to the public with displays, demonstrations, tasting and seminars; providing consumers with more information than ever before.

Visitors can learn, try and buy from selected, genuine eco-brands, knowing they have all met the 'Good Environmental Practice' entrance criteria. Exhibitors will be offering:

• Food, drink and organics
• Health, beauty and fashion
• Home improvement, building and living
• Gardening and pets
• Transport and fitness • Energy and water
• Charities to support
• Business services
• And more!

A 100% local beer and wine bar will be open for business, serving Yealands wine, Green Drop wine brands, Mike’s Organic Ale and more.
Entry is free for users of the Conscious Consumer app, Splore and Wanderlust attendees, and under 18’s. Early-bird tickets, discounts and free tickets are available – the normal entry price is $10.
Free car parking is provided, and the ASB Greenlane Showgrounds are on major bus routes, or a 20 minute walk from Greenlane train station. Ample cycle parking is provided.

Go Green Expo is dedicated to supporting green businesses across NZ, from tiny new brands to household names, with booth stands priced to ensure accessibility for smaller companies.

An exclusive preview and networking drinks for business and trades will take place on Friday 4th April. Industry people are welcomed to meet the exhibitors from 2-5pm, and network and hear from speakers on sustainable business between 5-8.30pm. Interested parties can register here.
