    Default Has anyone been to the expos?

    Hi everyone,

    I have just signed up for this website, and have been reading over everyones forum postings to get familiar with the site

    I was just wondering if anyone was going to the Opportunities New Zealand Expo this coming weekend (in Manchester i think) - or if anyone went to the London one in the weekend just been?

    I am keen to move to New Zealand, but my main concern is about getting a job - I just wanted to know if the expo was worthwhile attending?

    Hi Heidi,

    to MoveToNZ.

    There's a new thread running currently about the expos . With a bit of luck it will be added to as and when folks have been, so it'll give you some idea of what they thought about them.

    Yes, we went to London this weekend. My hubby, BanjoJon has posted a thread about our experiences.

    We have no job offer "yet", but got loads of advise, contacts and reassurance about getting one.

    Also spoke to NZIS which saved a few pennies trying to phone their premium rated line!
