Feb 19: H3 kicks off 2019 in style

The momentum is continuing to build for H3 after a busy and successful 2018 – with 2019 already gearing up to be even bigger and better for the venue group.

H3’s Business Development Manager – Business Events Melissa Williams says it is exciting to head into the new year on a high.

“Already we have had an action-packed January with the likes of HSBC NZ Sevens, Fatboy Slim and international cricket all taking place across our venues. With other big public events like the New Zealand Darts Masters and All Blacks v Tonga happening later in the year, there is no shortage of excitement headed Hamilton’s way,” says Melissa.

After hosting a mix of returning and new conference clients last year, the team are looking forward to much of the same in 2019.

“We are really excited to be welcoming back the likes of Rotary Club, Water NZ and WasteMINZ in 2019, as well as hosting a number of first-time conferences such as HIANZ, Practice Managers and Perioperative Nurses College,” says Melissa.

“We’re also thrilled to see an increase in interest for our character function space The Grandstand, after it was refurbished last year.”

New Celebration Packages have been launched to compliment the venue’s fresh look, with more information available at thegrandstand.co.nz

H3 is a division of Hamilton City Council responsible for overseeing the management of Claudelands, FMG Stadium Waikato and Seddon Park.
