Future on show at the Sustainable City Showcase

New Zealand’s first Sustainable City Showcase will pop up in November for a brief three-day stint, featuring the latest in environmentally-aware products and technology.

Sustainable City Showcase Auckland 2012The Sustainable City Showcase will be the key attraction at a three-day expo run by the Sustainable Business Network from November 22-24, and is open to the public on the last two days. 

It will feature displays from 120 companies and is expected to attract thousands of visitors from around New Zealand and overseas.

SBN chief executive Rachel Brown says visitors can walk through different areas of the pop-up city of the future and experience it as a future resident or business person.

“Sustainable City Showcase 2012 gives people the chance to experience urban life in the not-so-distant future,” says Brown.

“Kiwis already have a great reputation worldwide for producing top-quality goods and services as well as being clean, green and business-savvy. This expo gives our businesses the chance to show how to run a successful and profitable business, with minimal impact on the environment."

Another unique feature is a long lunch with a difference: a three-hour feast where business leaders can network, hear about the latest opportunities in sustainability from corporate executives, and enjoy fine Kiwi food and wine
