|The coastal Bay of Plenty region, with its long golden beaches and laid-back lifestyle, has long been one of New Zealand’s top holiday destinations. During the past few years, both the population and number of visitors have soared and the area now offers a vibrant mix of culture, activities, scenic attractions and top dining experiences. Tauranga’s Strand area offers lively nightlife, with restaurants, cafés and pubs all located along the serene waterfront.
The coastal Bay of Plenty is home to a variety of meeting venues that suit any conference needs from small, intimate numbers up to delegates of over 1,000. The region’s convention venues range from city centre hotels to country lodges and wineries with conference facilities allowing you to focus on results in your own exclusive domain.
Water is the focus of fun in the Bay of Plenty, and there are a range of activities that suit groups, from scenic boat cruises and thrilling jet-boat rides to swimming with dolphins and moonlight kayaking.
Conference delegates can also enjoy rides in classic aircraft, a spin on a locally-made Blokart or a flight to White Island, an active marine volcano. The group can end the day feasting on locally grown produce or enjoy a dip in the country’s only geothermally-heated salt water pools.
The Bay of Plenty Convention Bureau is building a reputation for going the extra mile - tailoring activities, facilities and support services to cater specifically for your requirements, so rest assured when you choose the ‘Bay’ for your next meeting, the first thing you can do is relax. The Bay of Plenty has it covered – from scenery and activities to venues and accommodation.
