After two more tremendous events we are looking ahead to our next three events for 2022! Auckland Spring is set for Labour Weekend, with Wellington and Christchurch in December.

So here's an update on what we're planning for #springeddon this October 21-24! Behind the scenes we are moving ahead, with exhibitors and events booked in, a full line-up of IN-PERSON celebrity guests, amusements and more ready to go ✨
however, at the moment the Auckland Showgrounds is closed as there is still no firm decision on who is managing the venue. We are expecting to hear more about this in the next couple of weeks (hopefully sooner rather than later) - once we've got the green light, we'll announce our line-up of guests and exciting plans for the event!

So, stay tuned, keep your fingers crossed and we will expect to see you all at the biggest event of the year over Labour Weekend ❤

P.s. Not forgetting Wellington and Christchurch - both are looking amazing. Details will be announced in October, but expect a few surprises!
