Bay of Plenty developments create more exciting options for business events

Exciting growth continues in the Bay of Plenty Region, marked by ongoing construction in the Tauranga City Centre. Te Manawataki o Te Papa, the vibrant heart of Te Papa, is taking shape, and is set to include a civic whare, museum and exhibition gallery.

In the years ahead, conference attendees will benefit from these enhancements, along with the recent opening of new venues such as the rustic Cargo Shed, in the CBD and right on the waterfront, offering sea-view conference settings. Additionally, St Amands has debuted as a specialised conference venue, promising unique degustation experiences and themed expertise. Plus, the reopening of the revamped Tauranga Club and Art Gallery will provide additional and bespoke off-site conference options.

With a growing number of venue choices, Tourism Bay of Plenty is keen to show you around and also indulge in some memorable experiences. Please contact Angela Werder, who will happily arrange a bespoke famil to showcase the opportunities for doing Business by the Beach. Reach out via email:
