Introducing the Central Otago Business Events team

The team at Central Otago Business Events offer an expert, professional, no cost advisory service that draws on their many years of business and community connections made throughout Central Otago across the tourism and wine sectors. They listen, evaluate, and identify the ideal partners to amplify your business event. They will explain the diversity that exists within Central Otago, outlining the range of unique venues from award winning wineries to a world class motorsport park, experiences and the accommodation offerings.

Whether planning an executive retreat, meeting, incentive or delegate reward programme or a small to mid-sized conference of up to 120 people, be assured that when you book your business event into Central Otago, the team will have you connected with collaborative partners who will guide you in designing a tailor-made schedule incorporating experiences of the highest quality.  

Feedback received from a recent conference held in Cromwell confirms that Central Otago certainly met their event requirements. “The destination offered a chance to unwind with breathtaking mountain view surroundings, a host of cellar doors, local produce and many activities for pre and post stays.”

Their reasons for choosing Central Otago?  
• Was within 2 hours drive of a major airport • Offered a conference venue to host up to 100+ delegates • Had ample accommodation within 10kms of the main venue • Offered alternative venues for social functions • Was committed to giving back to its community and the trail sector • Was able to showcase unique field trip experiences within an hour of the main venue. 

Their best piece of advice “Build a connection with your host destination and learn who are the local contacts and get to know them. They are your best source of information when planning unique and inspiring events.”
