Where Business Gets Done

“With Waikato’s growth of 7% last year. A $30 billion dollar economy. A population bigger than Wellington and growing. And, with proximity to NZ’s largest $100 billion dollar Auckland market, the Waikato Chamber of Commerce just wants to promote you and your business! So, grab a site at this expo and sell your products and services into an area that’s growing! Because if you don’t your competitor will!”
