Warrnambool City Council will once again have a strong presence at the Regional Living Expo in Melbourne with about 10,000 Melburnians seeking a sea-change or tree-change expected to attend.

The expo, held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition centre from May 1-3, is the State Government’s premier marketing tool to promote regional migration to the metropolitan market.

Council’s Economic Development team will be on hand to market Warrnambool’s excellent schools, job prospects and affordable housing.

Local businesses seeking major investment or skilled employees are encouraged to get in touch with Council so the details can be passed onto attendees.

Senior Economic Development Officer Phil Hoggan said that the expo was an opportunity to showcase the Warrnambool region and all it has to offer.

“The prospect of gorgeous beaches, reasonably priced housing and five minute commutes is understandably very appealing to many Melburnians,” Mr Hoggan said.

“The precursor for a move to regional Victoria is securing a good job, so this is a great chance for businesses looking for skilled employees to canvas the Melbourne market.
“Warrnambool’s population is predicted to approach 50,000 by 2035 and many of these new residents will move here from metropolitan areas.
“Council’s job at the expo is to make it as easy as possible for someone to either move to or do business in Warrnambool by informing them of job prospects, investment opportunities and details on facilities and institutions that help make our city a great place to be.”

Warrnambool businesses wishing to promote their employment and/or investment opportunities at this year’s Regional Living Expo are encouraged to contact Phil Hoggan on phoggan [at] warrnambool [dot] vic [dot] gov [dot] au or 5559 4956
