Fieldays Health & Wellness Hub
Fieldays Health & Wellness Hub
Mobile Health works in close partnership with the National Fieldays Society to run the Health & Wellness Hub at Fieldays each year. The goal of the Hub is to consolidate the majority of the health organisations under one roof, and to help organisations create interactive and interesting stands that will engage and inform people about their health, and encourage them to take a positive step towards better health.
Mobile Health works with all participating organisations to ensure they are the right fit for the hub, and that activities will be interesting, informative and engaging for visitors. We are happy to talk through any questions that you may have if you are interested in participating. Contact us.
The National Fieldays Society are very supportive of the Health Hub. In addition to underwriting many of the expenses for the hub, they also make some grants to offset some of the site fees for a number of charitable organisations. Fieldays team do much of the back-end logistics including stand booking and allocation, ticketing etc.

This year 25,000 visitors stepped into the Hauora Taiwhenua Health and Wellbeing Hub during the four-day Fieldays event and prioritised their wellbeing. The health hub accommodated 34 exhibitors manned by dedicated healthcare professionals, including volunteer doctors and health students, who provided valuable information including personalised insights and actionable recommendations to help make informed choices about lifestyle and overall health.
The event, which saw more than 105,000 visitors attend Fieldays, was a great success, and we would like to thank all the staff and volunteers who participated.

Information for Exhibitors
Plan Ahead: The Fieldays show is very large with over 1000 exhibitors. It is very important to make all bookings early.
Accommodation: With many exhibitors booking accommodation over a year ahead, finding last minute accommodation can be extremely hard to find and expensive. Book early, and use local staff where possible.
Transport: Co-ordinating transport can also be a big help, we suggest you beat the traffic and arrive early, enjoy a good breakfast at Fieldays before the day starts.
Prepare Your Staff: The show is 4 days long so it is important staff know what to expect including the early mornings and the long days. During the event staff should stay hydrated, eat well, take breaks and sleep well. Many organisations will roster staff on for only 1-2 days during the event so when they are there they can be fresh and engaged.
A Helping Hand: The team from Mobile Health will be on hand to ensure the show runs smoothly for everyone, and staff have an enjoyable experience. The staff area where we have fruit, hot drinks, espresso coffee & some seating for staff during breaks is one of the most loved areas in the Hub. We encourage staff to arrive early each day to beat the rush. We have a team warm-up session each morning to prepare the body, and also quick talk to set the expectation for the day.
