Following the success of the previous two years, this third annual U.S. Universities Expo expanded from one fair in Auckland to an additional fair in Wellington. As in the 2013 and 2014 expos, the Third Annual U.S. Universities Expo was a major success, with well over 2000 attendees in Wellington and Auckland, combined.
