The New Zealand Experience Expo will be held from June 2 to 4 on Nguyen Hue Street in Ho Chi Minh City and is expected to draw thousands of visitors who will be able to try a New Zealand virtual reality wine tour, sample New Zealand food and beverages, learn about studying in New Zealand, and be in New Zealand photos.

The event, organized by the New Zealand Embassy in Vietnam, who are honored to be granted approval to be one of the first to hold a showcase on Nguyen Hue Street, is to celebrate the first Air New Zealand flight between Auckland and Vietnam.

The grand opening ceremony will be held at 6pm on June 2. After that the Expo will open twice a day, from 7.30am to 9.30am and 5.30pm to 9.30pm on June 3 and 4. The expo is free to attend.

“We are pleased to be able to celebrate increasing connections between New Zealand and Vietnam,” New Zealand Consul General, Mr. Tony Martin, said. “Vietnam is New Zealand’s fastest growing export market and we see this popularity continuing to grow, particularly amongst those who are looking for top class international education and delicious, safe, traceable, high quality food and beverages.”

Vietnam is already New Zealand’s second-largest source of international students from within ASEAN, with more than 2,000 Vietnamese students currently studying in the country.
