Creating meaningful business events in a holiday hot spot

The Coastal Bay of Plenty offers nature, culture and friendly hospitality, and Tourism Bay of Plenty is proud to showcase venues and activities that ensure the business events hosted here are memorable.

One of the best ways to do that is to invite your attendees to go beyond the four walls of their accommodation and meeting rooms. There are plenty of great activities to choose from. Get active by paddling as a group in a large waka to Mauao (Mount Maunganui); relax in the therapeutic saltwater Mount Hot Pools; enjoy pre-dinner drinks on a harbour cruise that departs straight off a hotel pier; or taste local ales on a craft breweries tour.

Our region also has an abundance of horticultural goodness, in addition to the kiwifruit and avocado output it’s already widely known for. Why not add a behind-the-scenes orchard tour to your programme, allowing your attendees to explore the region’s best berry, macadamia or olive sites. If the season is right, they can even try truffle hunting and tasting (which could even include truffle ice cream).

Let us help you
We’re here to support your event planning to ensure it’s as stress-free as possible. We provide free, non-biased recommendations and can introduce and connect you to the most suitable venues and suppliers to fit your particular event requirements. The best way to do this is to book an in-person fact-finding famil to let us show you around, but we can also organise things via phone and email if you prefer.
