Dec 17: December Mega-Famil

We had a great time hosting 13 guests on our last multiday-famil for the year.

Attendees visited Claudelands Conference & Exhibition Centre, Distinction Hotel Hamilton, Hobbiton Movie Set, Waitomo Caves, Waikato Tainui College, University of Waikato, Novotel Tainui Hamilton, Sudima Hotel, SkyCity, Vilagrad, the Verandah and more.

Business Events manager Amanda Graham says the famil went very well with lots of positive feedback.

“We had really great quality buyers through, which we were thrilled with. Our local team did us proud and we are already seeing some business come our way because of it.”

Famils in 2018
This year, following buyer demand and feedback from our partners, the Business Events team increased the number of multiday famils we run to three. Buyers are prequalified with a maximum of 15-buyers per group. If you would like to join us on a multiday famil in 2018 please email

A new initiative in 2018 will be ‘company only’ bespoke famils. We appreciate that professional conference organisers and larger companies have limited time and want to experience famils targeted to their market sector.
