Zempire Tent Expos & Activations: Where to see us this summer

Tent expos are an ideal way to view loads of tents and camping furniture to find out what will be best suited for you and whoever you’re bringing on your NZ camping adventures. From large family tents to lightweight hiking tents, you are sure to find the right camping gear when you see it in the flesh.

This summer Zempire will be busy attending tent expos and tent shows facilitated by our various retail partners across New Zealand, along with various Northern Brave Super Smash matches. We’ve already kicked off a few tent shows with various Hunting & Fishing stores for the early bird campers, but still have plenty of events to come before summer really kicks into gear…

Check out our below dates and details to find a tent expo or activation that best suits your schedule to get sorted for an epic summer of camping.
