Segway PT drives Tauranga Home Show this weekend

Bay Events owner Graeme Martin found the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) to be so useful for event management at his shows that he purchased his own in 2001.

The Tauranga Home Show is on today, Saturday and Sunday at the TECH Events Centre at Mount Maunganui.

Graeme uses his Segway i2 Patroller non-stop from dawn to dusk on the pre-show, build-up days while vendors are setting up their stands, as well as on “show days” to get around the large, indoor and outdoor events centre.

Graeme first began using Segway PTs in 2004 when Segway New Zealand began exhibiting at his shows such as The Boat Show and the Home Show (and now the Seriously Good Food Show). Some years there would be three or four Segway PTs in use by event staff at a time, as well as those on trade display. In addition to management, staff on PTs would do everything from directing traffic in the car parks to delivering hot coffee to exhibitors.

Here is our article about traffic management at the 2010 Tauranga Home Show.
