GENERAL TRADE SPACE INFORMATION
The next Helensville A&P Show will be held at the Helensville Showgrounds on Saturday 23rd February 2019.
The Helensville Agricultural & Pastoral Association has held the Helensville A&P Show almost every year since 1900, with only a polio epidemic, World War II, and extreme weather causing a few years to be cancelled. As a result, it is one of the longer running A&P Shows in New Zealand. It has an enviable reputation and an unabashedly traditional feel.
Helensville A&P Show has a proud history of promoting Helensville’s agricultural and pastoral interests, and showcasing the best of the region. It’s the largest annual event on Helensville’s calendar, and continues to build on a long and successful reputation of bringing the country to the town. The Show offers a unique hands-on learning experience and wonderful day out for all ages.
FREE COMMUNITY TRADE SPACES
Each year we offer up to 10 local community organisations free trade stands. These are standard 3m x 3m unpowered sites, and there are some restrictions, such as not being able to serve food in competition with paying stall holders.
What the show can do for you
The Helensville Show is a local icon that celebrates all things town and country, from the latest technology for the rural sector to the best in entertainment.
On average around 150 trade exhibitors hold stalls at the Show each year. This diverse range of trade exhibitors use the Show to launch new products, sell products, raise brand awareness and reach existing and prospective customers. Since the Show’s earliest days, trade sites have been an important draw-card for the public, with show attendees often constituting a loyal customer base for trade exhibitors.
In recent years, the Helensville A&P Show has attracted record numbers of trade exhibitors and visitors. It’s the largest one-day show in the Northern District (which stretches from Franklin in the South to the top of the North Island) and attracts up to 8,000 people and 4,000 competitor entries. Consequently the Helensville A&P Show enables trade exhibitors to:
- Reach key target markets
- Generate new customers and sales leads for ongoing business
- Promote products
- Directly interact with a wide audience
- Develop brand loyalty and exposure
- Educate consumers about your product or service
- Transact directly with customers
While the Show continues to mature and go from strength to strength, there is still more that can be done to realise the potential the Helensville A&P Show has.
We invite you to consider the benefits that supporting this local event can offer your business.
