Napier Conferences & Events at association event; new face

The Napier Conferences and Events team was back to business at the recent AssociationX trade show in Wellington. It was a great opportunity for events manager Donna Ransfield to network with industry professionals and showcase Hawke’s Bay’s offerings as a top conference and event destination.

In other news, there’s a new face at the organisation. Hayden Henderson brings more than 15 years of experience in the hotel and tourism industries, both in New Zealand and London, United Kingdom. He has a passion for ensuring seamless customer experiences and is eager to hit the ground running in his new role, meeting new clients and driving leading events and conferences towards Napier.

Hayden replaces conferences and events manager, Jacqui D’Ath who, after eight years of dedicated service, has left the organisation. 
With the appointment of Hayden Henderson as interim conference and events manager, the team is looking forward to attending MEETINGS 2023 in June to introduce him to industry contacts and continue bringing successful events and conferences to the region.
