Rotorua’s infrastructure investment good news for business events

Rotorua continues to experience a revival with major public and private infrastructure projects. This is good news for business events.

Big ticket items include a $40 million upgrade to the Rotorua Lakefront, $85m for the Spa Precinct, $25m for Whakarewarewa Forest Investment in Tokorangi Drive and the new Putake o Tawa Carpark and Forest Hub.

Private investment includes $6m at Skyline Rotorua, plus accommodation upgrades at Rydges, Millennium, Regent of Rotorua, and soon Novotel and Ibis. Pullman is less than four years old and an excellent five-star addition to Rotorua’s accommodation offering.

Other innovations on the activities and experiences front includes Te Pā Tū’s shift in philosophy that elevates the product to a new level of immersive, high-end cultural experience.

“Our message to business events organisers who have not been to Rotorua for a few years, is that now is the time to come and see it in a new light,” says says RotoruaNZ’s business events manager, Vanessa Wallace. “We have been proactive in the past few months running famils and site visits and we know those who have taken part have left the region impressed by what we have to offer.”
