Looking for a land down under â€“ in Birmingham
Down Under Live!, the UKâ€™s biggest event for migration to Australia and New Zealand will be coming to Birminghamâ€™s Â National Motorcycle Museum on the 19th and 20th September.
With over 30,000 emigrating from the UK Â to Australasia every year, and hundreds of thousands more visiting for holidays, both Australia and New Zealand remain iconic destinations for Britons. The attraction of warmer weather, stunning scenery and improved job prospects are all major factors in making the move down under, but it is the outdoor lifestyle and quality of life that attracts most UK migrants.
Down Under Live! will showcase the very best that both Australia and New Zealand have to offer in a focussed event, offering visitors the opportunity to plan the move of a lifetime.
The centrepiece of the show is a dedicated migration seminar programme, where visitors to the show can hear from recognised migration experts on every aspect of migrating. 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.
State Governments such as South Australia will be on hand to discuss job opportunities, and highlight the best that their state has to offer migrants from the UK. Jobseekers will also be able to talk to recruitment specialists about vacancies in Australia and New Zealand and the show aims to tap into the wealth of resource on offer in the West Midlands.
The eventâ€™s director, Lisa Doerr comments â€œ Weâ€™re delighted to be bringing Down Under Live! to Birmingham. We know that the region is home to thousands of skilled professionals, whose skills are coveted in both Australia and New Zealand. This event will make many peopleâ€™s dreams a reality and give them the tools they need to make the move down under.â€
The show runs from the 19th to the 20th September 2009 and tickets cost from just Â£5 per person. Under 16â€™s are admitted free. Further information is available on the show website â€“ www.downunderlive.co.uk
