More Parking Added at Auckland Home Show
More Parking Added as Auckland Home Show Prepares for Record Turnout
The Auckland Home Show (9th–13th September at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland), Australasia’s largest home, continues this weekend with a strong turnout and sales set to exceed the 2014 total.
The show is bigger in every way this year, with additional display space sold out since January and an additional 100 carparks added for the expected weekend turnout.
Exhibition Director Amanda Magnus says that the show has been expanding at a steady rate since the Global Financial Crisis hit the property market in 2007 and the home-hungry public have been attending in force this year, looking for ideas, inspiration and bargains for their own home or investment properties.
“Exhibitor confidence just couldn’t be stronger,” says Magnus. “We’ve got more than 500 exhibitors vying for the attention of the public and the amount they’re spending on exhibition concepts, marketing and social media coverage has never been higher.”
Magnus says that last year 47,000 visitors spent upwards of $60million at the show and expects this number to be exceeded this year.
Parking space is always at a premium in Auckland and this year the Auckland Home Show has secured more parks than ever before. Magnus encourages visitors to look for the carparks in the adjacent Alexandra Park, accessible from Campbell Cres, (off Puriri Drive or Manukau Road) as the Greenlane Road parking areas are the first to fill up.

“Be patient - there is parking close to the ASB Showgrounds venue,” she said.
"With more than 500 exhibitors and 20,000m2 of exhibition space to cover, the Auckland Home Show has everything you need for your home project, renovation or simply for inspiration,” she said.
