An expo for Marae representatives will be held at Te Papaiouru Marae in Rotorua on July 6.
The Marae Expo is the outcome of a combined agencies group working collaboratively in the wider Bay of Plenty area.
The group, comprising the NZ Fire Service, Maori Land Court, NZ Historic Places Trust, Inland Revenue, Internal Affairs, Te Puni Kokiri and Te Papa Takaro o Te Arawa, believes that the Marae Expo will provide an effective means of sharing information, advice, products and services with Marae representatives.
There will be up to 45 different exhibitors at the Marae Expo and the hope is that there will be something of interest for everyone.
A funding forum will form a part of the Marae Expo and will inform Marae representatives of some of the financial assistance available to them.
Although being held in Te Arawa rohe, the Marae Expo is open to all iwi and hapu across the motu.
This event is free to attend and the group encourages all Marae whanau to come along and share in the day.
