Get a new life in Australia or New Zealand at Down Under Live!
Thousands of people looking to avoid another UK winter will be heading to Down Under Live! at the Business Design Centre in London at the end of January to look for a new life down under.
Over one million Britons travel down under every year, and Australia remains the number one destination for migrants from the UK. Australia is still in desperate need of migrants to fill critical skill shortages, and it is expected that this need will grow as an ageing population and state growth targets fuel more migration to Australia from the UK.
More than 35 companies will be represented at the show, making a visit essential for anyone looking to travel or move to the other side of the world.
Visitors to the show can apply for jobs across a range of industries, including IT, healthcare, automotive, construction, engineering and finance, as well as talking to representatives of both the Australian and New Zealand governments who will be on hand to offer relocation advice. Free visa assessments will be on offer to any visitor looking to relocate down under, and there will also be a detailed seminar programme running over the weekend which will provide a detailed overview of what it costs to move and live in these two iconic countries.
There is also a Travel Zone, dedicated to anyone interested inÂ backpacking, touring or travelling down under, which will save visitors time and money in booking the holiday of a lifetime to Australia or New Zealand. Exhibitors will include airlines, agents and travel specialists and there will also be presentations on travel down under in the Travel Theatre.
Another growing area of interest in Australasia is education â€“ which is Australiaâ€™s third largest export â€“ and the Learning Zone will provide information and advice to anyone looking to further their education down under.
Down Under Live takes place on the 30th and 31st January 2010 at The Business Design Centre in Islington. Doors open at 10.30am. Tickets are available for as little as Â£5 each (under 16â€™s go free) from the website www.downunderlive.co.uk or by calling the ticket hotline on 01179 323586.
