About the Expo

With an increasing number of city dwellers anxious about housing affordability and eager to escape high mortgages and long daily commute times, the expo acted as an opportunity to promote regional communities and organisations in Australia’s largest market place. The Expo connected regional communities and organisations with people wanting to move out of Sydney who are unsure of where they would like to go often without the knowledge of how to go about the process of relocating.   The Expo provided an extremely powerful and viable direct method of marketing regional centers.
