Waikato Show – Hamilton 2023

Expo Details

From its early days as an Agricultural and Dairy show in 1907, the Waikato Show is unique in New Zealand and has grown to become a showcase of the Waikato.  It celebrates and offers a taste of the regions’ diverse communities, organisations and busineses.

The biggest event in the Waikato, visitors can explore a range of exhibitions, activities, live performances, delicious food and much more.

We will be running an Airsoft range and display beside the Roller Derby girls. 

Get involved!  This is the perfect opportunity to promote Airsoft to potential new players direct in your local area.

Frequently Asked Questions

What clothing should I wear?

As we are presenting to the public it is important for our crew to be dressed appropriately.

No camo or BDU’s of any kind is to be worn.

Tidy black pants and either a club t-shirt or tidy black t-shirt or shirt are preferred.  If you don’t have a club tee yet, you can purchase merch here.

If you are feeling creative you can wear a post apocalyptic themed costume providing it is not of a military nature and does not incorporate camo patterns.

If you are unsure, please send us a photo of what your costume will look like for prior approval.

Can I carry my gun around?

No attendee is to bring or carry an Airsoft gun during these events.  All attendees are to remain around the Apocalypse Airsoft display while on duty.

Will display guns be stored at the expo overnight?

No. All display guns will be set up and removed daily. No Airsoft Firearms will be left on site.

We no longer require the loan of additional Airsoft guns for display purposes

Can I help for half a day?

With the logistics of site induction and safety briefings etc we would prefer all volunteers to be able to help out for a full day for any day that they register attendance.  You can help out for any one day (or all of them!) as it suits.

Can I bring my own guns to use in the shooting ranges?

No. Only the checked and approved NZ Airsoft hire guns will be used in either range.

Absolutely NO personal Airsoft guns are to be brought to the event.

Do I have to pay for an entry ticket?

No you don’t. The Expo organisers do not always supply us with enough free passes but our staff have never had problems gaining free entry. We may issue what passes we have during the day if you are coming and going frequently from the event. We will supply all NZ Airsoft helpers with branded lanyards which will help at the gate. If you have any issues being let in call Spanky on 021 065 1015.

Do I have to pay for parking?

Parking costs are to be confirmed with the organisers and we will let you know closer to the event date.

We will supply all NZ Airsoft helpers with branded lanyards which MAY help at the gate.

Some food and snacks will be supplied for the weekend, along with drinks.  There are plenty of places to purchase food at the event as well.
