Get your girlfriends together because the Women's Lifestyle Expo is returning to Hawke's Bay next month.

The expo, which has had a three-year break, is now under the ownership of NZME, a company that owns New Zealand's leading publishing, radio, digital and e-commerce brands including local newspaper Hawke's Bay Today and shopping sensation GrabOne.

There will be about 120 companies involved in the two-day event featuring everything from fashion and accessories to giftware, food and wine, crafts and much more.

NZME general manager and organiser of the expo Renee Murray was excited the event was returning to Hawke's Bay again.


"It's a great event that generates a lot of money into the community and also allows local companies to showcase themselves to a targeted market in just two days.

"We will be bringing a fabulous experience to the women of Hawke's Bay for one weekend."

Ms Murray said it was an opportunity to see many companies under the one roof.

Aside from having local companies exhibiting at the expo, a large number of national companies were travelling to Hawke's Bay from all around New Zealand especially to show local women their products.

"This is a great chance for women to stop, relax and spoil themselves for one weekend."

Sites are selling very fast with limited spots available - if you want to market your company to thousands of women in two days, this is the place to be. Contact NZME Events on (06) 354 0498 and for more details.
