The Weekend Sun Competition

The Tauranga Women’s Lifestyle Expo is returning for 2020, bringing together 140 of the best lifestyle companies under one roof for the weekend of October 10 and 11 at Trustpower Baypark.

The expo will have something for everyone’s taste, orgnanisers say in a statement to SunLive.

The best of local companies will be exhibiting at the expo, alongside a number of national companies who will travel to Tauranga especially for the event.

It is being dubbed as the "perfect opportunity for a girls’ day out, or to treat yourself to a day leisurely wandering between exhibitors".

“It’s been incredible seeing our communities coming together to support local," says NZME event director Renee Murray.

"We are so pleased to be able to hold events here in New Zealand and provide an opportunity for Kiwi businesses and local Tauranga companies to connect with thousands of women.

"We have always been well supported by the community and this year we encourage the people of Tauranga to attend the show and support Kiwi businesses after what has been a deeply challenging time for many.”

Renee says the event’s aim to have as wide a range of companies involved as possible due to the diversity and varying interests of those who attend.

“In previous years it’s been great seeing women of all ages and from all walks of life visit the show, from teenagers and young women, to mothers and grandmothers, and friends simply enjoying each other’s company."

The popular Craft Zone will include artisan crafters from all over New Zealand with unique products including soaps and beauty products, jewellery, original art, home decor, beeswax wraps and more.

Appreciating that shopping, tasting, trying and testing can be hard work, the expo Taste Zone will be on hand to offer pick-me-ups, tasty treats and bites to keep you going.

The expo is happening on Saturday, October 10, (10am to 5pm) and Sunday, October 11, (10am to 4pm) at Trustpower Baypark in Mount Maunganui.

Tickets are available on GrabOne now (two tickets for just $10), or can be purchased at the door all weekend for $10 per person.

Children under 12 are free.
