The Spencer on Byron Hotel in Takapuna, Auckland held a function last night, as the team there looked to thank its clients and partners for their support over the years.
General manager Greg Remmington said the night was all about the buyers.
The inaugural Convene Networking Session took place at The Grounds at Whoa! Studios in Auckland last night.
The event was hosted by Convene Group in conjunction with The Production & Music Agency, Greg Ward and Pavlovich Coachlines.
The opening cocktail function at this year's Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo has proved a standout, with hosted buyers treated to an evening at the Old Melbourne Gaol.
Home to notorious crims including Ned Kelly, the gaol was decked out to provide a truly 'one-of-kind' experience for attendees at this year's event.
There were some bowls being played at the Point Chev Bowling Club last Wednesday but most people were simply enjoying catching up with good friends at The Production & Music Agency's Christmas do.
Christmas wreaths were the order of the day when Heritage Auckland Hotel invited business events practitioners to a Christmas function on the pool deck last week.
General manager Marcus Keenan says 2017 has been a strong year all round, including in the conference, meetings and incentives sectors. And he says 2018 looks like being another strong performance.
