Eventbrite has officially launched into New Zealand, following significant organic growth in the local market. The move is part of the company’s APAC expansion efforts.

Pre-MEETINGS famil a hit for Wanaka

Monday, 12 June 2017 08:42

Lake Wanaka Tourism held a pre-MEETINGS famil in Wanaka at the beginning of this month, hosting international buyers from a range of markets including North America, SE Asia and India.

The famil, which was hosted in conjunction with Tourism New Zealand, saw buyers experience a range of Wanaka activities including skydiving and high country 4WD, and concluded with a gala dinner at The Rippon Hall. The buyers stayed at Edgewater.

James Helmore, general manager of Lake Wanaka Tourism, says promoting Wanaka as a destination for incentives and conferences is one of the organisation’s key strategies.

‘Typically conference delegates will stay longer than other visitors to the region and C&I events are usually held outside of peak seasons,’ he says.

Helmore says Wanaka being selected by Tourism New Zealand as a MEETINGS famil destination was recognition of the region’s portfolio of products, services and venues for the MICE market.

Christchurch Centre shows off designs

Monday, 05 June 2017 23:31

Designs for the Christchurch Centre were unveiled to event organisers at MEETINGS 2017 in Auckland.

General manager Rob McIntyre says the convention centre will be a dream space for organisers and delegates, designed with a distinctive South Island flavour.

‘Our stunning new venue is now underway on a prime riverfront site, in the heart of New Zealand’s newest city,’ he says.

Designed by international firm Woods Bagot, McIntyre says the Christchurch Centre promises to be a landmark facility of outstanding architectural significance. Its central, walkable location, cultural and heritage references, and flexible design layout are key features.

‘We have studied the best practice worldwide and designed purpose-built boutique facilities around the way our clients work, creating seamless transitions between spaces and sessions,’ McIntyre says. ‘The venue will be responsive to a wide range of event requirements for up to 2000 delegates, all within easy walking distance of city hotels.’

The centre features a tiered 1400-delegate auditorium that can be scaled to allow up to three events to run concurrently. It is complemented by break-out space in meeting rooms - from boardroom scale to large flat floor plenary sessions. The purpose-built banqueting area has separate capacity to host the total number of convention delegates. An exhibition hall supports the exhibition component of conventions, while public circulation space allows for informal meetings and pre-event gathering spaces. Support infrastructure includes dedicated offices for professional conference organisers, a hospitality lounge, boardroom, crew room and speaker preparation rooms.

‘Christchurch ticks all the boxes for destination appeal, accessibility, educational opportunities, and networking. It is the gateway to the magnificent South Island, with an excellent international airport and an attractive, compact city centre,’ says McIntyre.

The Christchurch Centre is a New Zealand Government project and is managed by Accor.

Wellington gets pricey

Monday, 15 May 2017 05:05

‘It’s not surprising that Wellington’s room rates exceed other centres, it’s our nation’s capital and requires a lot of business travel traffic,’ he says. ‘Auckland is heading into what could be described as a significant supply and demand issue and as a result, rates are increasing.’

Waikato convenes in force

Monday, 06 February 2017 23:08

Thirteen operators from Hamilton and Waikato will attend Convene this year – four more exhibitors than the region represented last year.
Convene, which is taking place on 11 April at the Vodafone Events Centre in Auckland, will allow these businesses to meet with buyers to boost the region's conferencing and incentive markets.
Amanda Graham, the convention bureau manager at Hamilton & Waikato Convention Bureau, says the region is growing in this sector due to its large facilities and diverse activities.
‘It is great to see the region’s trade footprint growing – a reflection of the Waikato’s growing popularity as a business event and incentive destination.’

48 hours in New Plymouth

Sunday, 22 January 2017 20:06

What can conference organisers do in New Plymouth over two days? Quite a lot as it comes to pass. Early January the Devon Hotel and Heritage Hotels invited eight event organisers to discover first hand what the city has to offer for conference and events as well as options for touring programmes and offsite venues.
Shelley Eastwood, Heritage Hotel Management says the time was right for a famil to the region. ‘There is a diverse range of activities here for delegates – wine tasting at local vineyard Okurukuru; guided biking and hiking trails; jewellery making; world renowned galleries and excellent conference facilities and accommodation at the Devon Hotel.’

Incentives galore in Waikato

Sunday, 11 December 2016 23:49

By Julie Cleaver
Hamilton and the Waikato is a destination that is no stranger to bad publicity. Yet despite suffering from a negative public perception, the region has been making good progress in the conferencing industry. It has large meeting spaces suited for big or small numbers, quality accommodation options, and is only an hour and a quarter away from the Auckland Airport, making it a convenient location for international delegates. However, what is still largely unknown about the Waikato is all the incentive options it has to offer.

Props to ACB

Wednesday, 16 November 2016 03:13

Guests at Auckland Convention Bureau’s (ACB) annual showcase recently left with a different kind of gift this year – the gift of giving.
ACB worked with Team Up Events to curate the event, held at Eden Park and attended by more than 130 guests.As part of a team building exercise, guests were split into teams and asked to collect puzzle pieces from ACB member organisations exhibiting at the event. Teams then worked together to create an Auckland puzzle in order to win prize bags full of brand new rugby gear.

Conference hat-trick for WLG

Thursday, 20 October 2016 03:10

Wellington has scored a trio of large international conferences in the last two months, through successful collaboration between the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency (WREDA), Tourism New Zealand and hosting organisations.
Business events teams at the two agencies have secured the conferences, which are expected to bring up to 1500 delegates to Wellington combined, for a total economic impact of nearly $3 million.
WREDA general manager, Events & Partnerships Warrick Dent says landing three major conferences in quick succession is cause for celebration. 'Our teams help Wellington win conferences all year round, but a big hat-trick like this is a great reward. International conference delegates deliver the highest average daily spend of all visitors, making them an valuable contributors to our visitor economy.

High profile meetings to Tauranga

Thursday, 20 October 2016 03:07

The Bay of Plenty is becoming an increasingly desirable destination for business and educational conferences, thanks to the arrival of high-profile events such October's National Maori Housing Conference.
A three-day strategic venture, exploring local, regional and international housing solutions, the biennial conference was held in Tauranga for the first time since its inaugural event in 2010.
The conference heard from a number of high profile speakers and guests from Australia, Hawai'i, Canada and New Zealand, including Maori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell and Minister for Social Housing Paula Bennett.
