Campaspe Shire will attend for the third year running.

The free expo, to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre between April 11 and 13, will promote the best of regional living to attract residents, skilled workers, business and investment.

Campaspe spokesperson for economic development and tourism Cr Paul Jarman said the expo was a chance to show off the region.

‘‘The expo gives us a chance to give Melbourne residents and businesses considering relocating to regional and rural Victoria all the information they need, including promotion of specific job and career opportunities,’’ he said.

‘‘Residents who have been part of previous events have enjoyed the experience and it really helps tell the story if we have people who love to live and work in the region.’’

The theme this year is ‘Triple Your Lifestyle Score’ based on the boardgame Scrabble.

It will involve ambassadors wearing colourful T-shirts with town-themed word arrangements.

A large model of the PS Adelaide will be available for expo visitors to take a look at and Port of Echuca Discovery Centre tickets will be on offer.
