I have worked with the Hamilton & Waikato Business Events team throughout 2021 and they have exceeded my expectations. Their knowledge of the region, venues, activities and services on offer is vast and their recommendations have been well matched to the event. They facilitate connections and continue to foster them far beyond your initial contact. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to hold an event in the Hamilton and Waikato region.

"For our upcoming conference in Hamilton we received outstanding service from the Hamilton & Waikato Tourism Convention Bureau in scoping out options for our annual industry conference. It was a very personal service, and our precise needs were scoped and assessed and options and visits were organised. In addition a variety of locations for our partners programme were identified and visited. The local knowledge of our host was extensive, and will result in an outstanding conference for all participants. In twenty years of organising events around NZ I have never experienced as good a service as this."

“Hamilton & Waikato is an easily accessible destination from Auckland that has a wealth of experiential assets for a business event and incentive programme. The wealth of expertise in the region covers a spectrum of industries, which all add potential for enhancing corporate and conference event programmes. With high tech contemporary facilities, the region offers a broad focus on agriculture, medicine, science and technology, the arts, sporting excellence, cultural experience, glow worms, a tea plantation, motor racing and movie making. Worth your consideration.”
