Discover what Regional and Rural Victoria can offer you at Victoria's Regional Living Expo
The third Regional Victoria Living Expo was held from 11-13 April 2014 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and was a huge success with 147 exhibitors, and a record 9,638 visitors. This follows the previous 15 per cent 2013 visitor increase from the 2012 inaugural event.
The Regional Victoria Living Expo is a four-year Victorian Government commitment and followed on the the overwhelming success of the 2013 event.
The key objectives of Expo are to:
- provide Melbourne residents and businesses with all the information they need when considering relocating to regional and rural Victoria, including promotion of specific job and career opportunities
- bring all regions of Victoria under one roof allowing Melburnians the chance to better understand the range of opportunities in regional and rural Victoria in one visit
- provide all 48 regional and rural councils with an opportunity to promote the benefits and opportunities available in their area in order to attract residents, skilled workers, business and investment.
The Government calls on all businesses, regional employment agencies, real estate agencies and regional tourism organisations to take part in the 2013 Expo to showcase their opportunities to Melburnians.
Additional exhibitors actively being sought include, including regional Victorian education, housing, employment providers.
