    Down Under Live Expo - Help!!

    I am planning a move to Australia with my family in the next 2 years so I thought it might be helpful to go to the 'Down Under Live' migration expo in Birmingham this weekend. I just had a rather bizarre experience! I phoned the Down Under Live 'hotline' to ask which exhibitors will be there this weekend as I wanted to know if any will relate to us. That seems a fairly reasonable enquiry to me! The guy on the phone was really evasive/defensive and wouldn't give me any information at all. He said he thought I was from a "rival exhibition company trying to find out what was going on at their expo". When I said I just wanted to know what was going on at the exhibition before spending £15 per ticket and travelling a long distance he said "I don't really understand why you want to know" and got quite assertive. Eventually he said there would be 25 stands, but refused to say what any of them would be. I was only asking for an exhibitors list to decide whether a visit would be worthwhile, I wasn't asking for the guys personal bank details for god's sake!! It rang a bit of an alarm bell that it might be an utter waste of our time - potentially a 2hr drive to visit a few people behind folding tables trying to sell removal services etc. Hrm, strange! Can anybody help with advice: Are you going? have you been before and was it worthwhile? Is this unhelpful turd in customer services a reflection of a Mickey Mouse expo/event? Thanks, all advice greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi, Can anyone tell me if the Down Under Live Expo is any good? I can't decide between this one and the Working In Expo. Neither one posts what employers they have attending. Can anyone tell me if they have been to either? Thanks

    London Expo

    Hi all, We have toyed with the idea of going to an expo for years and have welcomed people's opinions of them. Some people say they are worth going to, some people disagree. I can honestly say that the expo that we went to in London on Saturday was well worth the expensive train ride and the tickets to get in. We were unsure of the best visa for us and although we were disappointed with the help we received regarding student visas and midwifery, we felt that the advice we were given regarding business visas was fantastic. We have therefore decided to go down this route and feel like a huge weight has been lifted from our shoulders. We know that we still have a long road ahead of us in obtaining a visa and sorting out our future business but at least we can now start moving on with our plans with more knowledge. I would advise to people that if you are going under the skilled visa route and you do your homework well, then yeah, maybe the expo would be a waste of money for you, but if your visa plans deviate slightly from the norm, it may be a good idea to visit an expo to get the answers you need. Tracey :biggrin:

    Manchester expo!

    Hi, Just returned from the "working in" expo in Manchester and thought I would share my thoughts about my visit. Before I went along I had done alot of reading and research on the web and on PIO etc about migrating and to be honest the expo did not provide me with any new information. The exhibitors were varied but I was disappointed with what was on offer. There were around 40 exhibitors in total, to say the focus of the expo was 'health jobs' there was only a few ( around 10) exhibitors relating directly to health professionals, most were regarding removals, banking, immigration services, and engineering! The seminar program was limited and as I said before if you have already done your homework they won't be telling you anything you didnt know already. The tickets are £15each. I got a voucher to get my OH in free from a newspaper ad and I still feel ripped off especially counting in the cost of travel and parking. My opinion is that the Expo is probably good for people with limited knowledge of the immigration process, otherwise I would save your money!
