TSB Hubs Entry to Expo

By Louise Campbell on 30-Mar-12 01:54

The ever popular expo has been a yearly tradition for Taranaki couples newly engaged and organising their wedding day, but typically this expo is held in New Plymouth only. With a demand from as far as Palmerston North, South Taranaki finally has its own Wedding Expo!

The TSB Hub Wedding Expo was held on Sunday 25th March from 10am - 4pm and was a raging success for its first time as a venue. To the credit of the Hubs young talent, Vicki Johnston, Mark Mekalick and their team, the expo was put together in a quick two months and featured 32 vendors from across Taranaki.

I went around and visited most of our website vendors, many were swamped with crowds!I also got to meet new and exciting businesses, in particular Executive Transport who have a fleet of executive cars, young and old!

The day was a beautiful sunny autumn outcome, which couldn't have been more perfect for a sunday outing, especially for the 710 visitors in the 6 hour period. In the first hour they had 195 people through and by the time I got there at 11.30, there had been 350 people checking the stalls out, collecting brochures and giveaways.

I saw many enjoying the cake sampling from Annette's Cake Design and the wee cup cakes from Little Miss Cup Cakes (who had an amazing cup cake tower special). Lovell's Flowers 4 You were giving away gorgeous pink gerberas (of course they were one vendor I couldn't get to) and loads were enjoying the fashion show and dance demos by The Modern Jivers. Other vendors of ours were Dobsons Marquee and Party Hire, who were also swamped with enquiries and A Touch of Romance where Paul says it was good for couples to get a feel for inside the limos rather than just checking out photos.

Our photographers were out in force. Emma Fleming of Flash Focus Photograhy, Sandra Henderson and Kevin Bone were all there and all new to the wedding expo trend. Kevin says he was most intruiged by the amount of couples interested in his photo booth, where he puts up a white screen and lights at the reception for couples to have photos with friends and family using props.

We had fun with Wishing Well Flowers. Katherine had an amazing display to capture what she can do for weddings, including style and theme. This included a mix of rustic, vintage and creative bunches of different bouquets.


Linda from Tairoa Lodge and Cottage was enjoying a quick coffee when we caught up with her. Busy as ever, she had a wedding the day before with overnight guests for breakfast, and scraped in to set up her display just in the nick of time!

The day finished with Mayor Ross Dunlop announcing the winner of the $3500 prize draw package won by a Ms Prestidge. It included specials and deals from Bliss Beauty, Hawera Travel Centre, Annette's Cake Design, Hair on Main, A Touch of Romance, Wishing Well Flowers, Ambiance Style, Hub Health and Fitness, Serenity Wellness Spa and Kevin Bone Photography.
All in all, I think it was a great start to the TSB Hubs career in wedding expos and it was made more enjoyable by the pumping sounds throughout the day provided by Eruption Mobile DJ.

Making it the responsibility in the individual staying slandered by unsubstantiated should certainly disprove all of them? I would declare that Charlie Kass has wicked soaring monkeys dwelling inside of his butt, plus it could be the obligation to undergo a painful open rectal assessment to help disprove the actual claim. This is a activity liberals adore to perform, since their particular mass media lapdogs can make whatever state they want on page one along with pic any correction on page 16 (if from all). Although you may have practically nothing around the guy, these types of unsubstantiated distortions simply give you and the ones like you possibilities to publicise smudges. Solutions there is nothing to these says, but the truth is use them to kill all of the foes of your thought of "the better very good. inches But I am sure that you'll be furious by the demands regarding Obama to release their college transcripts or perhaps the satisfy his / her assures about management transparency.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.2014SeoTips.com">Seo Plugin</a>
