G’Day UK! New show will target passion for life down under
A major event targeting Britons looking to migrate to Australia and New Zealand is coming to Earls Court 2 in London next month.
Down Under Live!Â aims to help the estimated 40,000 people from the UK who will make a new life in Australasia this year, attracted by better weather, jobs and theÂ prospect of a new life. Featuring top names from the world of travel like Royal Brunei Airlines, Â and a host of companies to help the would-be migrant, Down Under Live will deliver a truly unique event.
In a recent survey conducted by the website www.getmedownunder.com, 64% of respondents said that lifestyle was the overwhelming factor in choosing a new life abroad. Weather, jobs and the current financial situation in the UK are all concerns, but its the laid back life, with stunning scenery , long days of sunshine and the outdoor life that attracts most emigrants.
The visa process though is lengthy and with the average family spending Â£5,000 on the migration process alone, it is not a small undertaking. The Down Under Live! exhibitors offer a complete solution to the migration process, from experts in visa application through banking experts and removals and government immigration departments.
Additionally, all 3 days of the show will feature a dedicated migration seminar programme, where visitors to the show can hear from recognised migration experts absolutely free. Topics covered include the visa process, how to avoid paying too much to have your goods shipped overseas and specialist areas such as healthcare and schooling.
John Weir, show director says â€œ With the average cost of emigrating to Australia or New Zealand now well above five figures, its essential that anyone serious about relocating down under get as much independent and qualified advice as possible. We think that Down Under Live! will provide a valuable tool for anyone wanting to make the move of a lifetime.â€
Down Under Live! will take place from the 3rd to the 5th April 2009 at Earls Court 2 in London.Tickets cost Â£10 on the door and from Â£5 per person in advance. Under 16’s get in free. Â Media sponsors include Australia & New Zealand magazine, www.getmedownunder.com and Migration Finder.
