Our business events team knows everything there is to know about holding events in this extraordinary part of New Zealand, and they’re here to take the stress out of organising yours – at no cost to you and with complete impartiality
Sometimes the casual “she’ll be right” attitude is good enough. However, when planning an event, there’s so much to consider in order to make it a success. Rather than just taking a leap of faith, let us do the work for you.
Our team provides the information that you need without bias. We work on behalf of the entire destination and offer advice to ensure you have considered all the venue and conference options that align with your requirements.
Rotorua has a variety of unique venues and locations to host events, and we’ll share the hidden gems and secret spots too. We work alongside all hotels, venues, activity operators, attractions and service providers in Rotorua. The work we do is obligation free and completely complimentary.
Are you planning a conference, incentive group itinerary, team-building day, executive retreat, summit, board meeting, trade show or forum and you’re not sure which venues in Rotorua will work?
Are you wanting to research and contact all the local venue operators that suit your event but you just don’t have the time to research venues and manage all the communication?
Are you considering multiple locations for your event and want to include Rotorua as an option for the board/CEO/your team to consider?
Our team is here to help – think of us as your personal convention bureau, here for all your free event planning services. Based on the conference or event requirements or brief, we’ll happily contact all relevant and suitable businesses on your behalf. Whether it’s conference venues, hotels, motels, lodges, social function venues, activity and attractions providers, transport, AV, and/or catering, we’ll collate a succinct destination proposal, including costs, specifically for you and available on your preferred dates.
Our team will liaise on your behalf until you’re comfortable to take the reins. Alternatively, we’re happy to introduce you to anyone in Rotorua or provide their details for you to contact the sales team or coordinators directly for information. It’s really your choice, we are here to help anyway we can.
We can help coordinate and host your visit to Rotorua to conduct site inspections based on your event’s requirements. We’ll make sure you meet with the right people to make your event a success.
