February and March is Backpacker Expo time as Hostelworld.com can be visited at shows aimed towards independent travellers in Melbourne, Dublin and London. To make it really worth your while coming up to members of the team at the shows, free Gold Cards worth US$10 will be handed out to all those who come up and visit us.
The first show of the three is the Backpacker & Travel Expo in Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition which can be accessed via the Carlton Gardens on Victoria Street. Taking place between Friday 24th February and Sunday 26th February and open from 10am-5pm, the expo is a fun way of finding out the newest and coolest destinations around Australia. Admission is AUS$5 but click here and print that page off and entrance is free.
Two weeks later in Dublin the Down Under Expo 2006 (admission €10) will be staged in the Irish capital’s RDS on Merrion Road in the south Dublin suburb of Ballsbridge. This show is the definitive guide to Australia and New Zealand for skilled migration, employment, working holidays, studying, backpacking, and more and is the only exhibition of its kind to take place in Ireland. You can find us at stand C8 towards the back of the hall.
A week later, London is where you can meet some of the team when we will be at stand 13 near the exit at the TNT Travel Show, London’s biggest free travel expo. Aimed at Antipodeans and South Africans living in the UK, this year’s show is taking place New Connaught Rooms, 61-65 Great Queen St and has free admission. The show provides travellers with the latest information and advice on how to make the most of their travel experiences while in the UK.
