A passion for putting people first is the driving force behind the exhibitions spearheaded by Bay Events in Tauranga. The family trio of Graeme, Raewyn and their daughter Dana share the enthusiasm and spark to bring these hugely stimulating and informative shows to the public each year.
“My mother and father started shows because they believed in the potential this city offered and wanted to support regional business progress,” says Dana. “The longevity and growth of Bay Events is a testament to them and the local people who have supported us along the way.”
Graeme and Raewyn established Bay Events back in 1995. Their first event was the well-received Grow Expo Flower & Garden Show at the Tauranga Racecourse, enjoying the challenge of working towards a set date with a years’ worth of hard work coming together over a multi-day event. Joined in 2011 by their daughter Dana, Graeme calls it the ‘triple-passion effect’.
