Team work makes Napier events dream work

The Napier Conferences & Events team works with other top local venues and supports organisers to create memorable events that showcase Napier’s vibe. The team is a great first point of contact for advice about options to meet individual needs and conference themes while based in New Zealand’s Art Deco capital.

A key part of their success is how they match those needs and themes to what other Napier City Council facilities can offer, whether it be welcome drinks, or delegate activities. The team is based at the Napier War Memorial Centre on Marine Parade, within walking distance of many of these other facilities.

An upcoming conference being held there encourages families to attend with a range of activities offered to delegates, such as a visit to the National Aquarium of New Zealand. Conference activities include dinner on the stage at Art Deco icon the Napier Municipal Theatre.

Large numbers can also be catered for. This was demonstrated by the New Zealand Planning Institute combining plenary at the theatre, breakout spaces at Napier War Memorial Centre, and MTG, Hawke’s Bay’s museum.

As another example, the venue hosted the iSite New Zealand conference, while the welcome drinks took place at the National Aquarium. Other Council facilities the Conferences & Events team work closely with include McLean Park, Par2 MiniGolf, Ocean Spa and Faraday Museum of Technology.

The team can also call on their colleagues at the Napier iSite any time, to help support and guide event organisers through the process of finding the best accommodation to suit their needs.
