striking landscapes to truly inspire...
The West Coast of the Southern Alps boasts towering mountains, pure rivers, spectacular lowland rainforests, wild beaches and New Zealand’s lowest accessible glaciers and longest cave systems. 

New Zealand's West Coast has three main centres, Westport, Greymouth and Hokitika. With a huge variety of quality accommodation options – hotels, motels, resorts, lodges holiday parks and B&B’s the area has facilities suitable for any New Zealand West Coast conference or event. Within Westport, Greymouth and Hokitika conferences as large as 600 people can be catered for.

If you’re looking for a smaller West Coast conference venue, and privacy and relaxation are crucial, Westport has a range of areas to tempt you. Karamea has the famous Pancake Rocks in the north of the region, while further south your New Zealand conference delegates can marvel at the stunning Franz Joseph Glacier and Fox Glacier.

Dramatic landscapes, commonly described as scenic treasures, are common place on the West Coast, New Zealand’s longest region. No wider than 70 kilometres at any point, the West Coast area is 90% national park and blessed with five of New Zealand’s 14 national parks and a World Heritage Area. Why not start your West Coast conference off with a stunning train or bus trip taking in the world class scenery of the Southern Alps and national parks?

The West Coast’s Franz Josef and Fox glaciers are impressive attractions for incentive travel in New Zealand and easily accessible, having crept to just 250m above sea level, in line with the rainforests.

The West Coast has guided treks, ice climbing and helicopter tours. Scenic flights take visitors to the glacier’s frozen heights or a simple walk brings you to the glacier’s progressing feet.

The West Coast, NZ, is also becoming increasingly recognisable for its internationally renowned artists and craftspeople. The striking landscapes attract and inspire a growing number of artists that value a lifestyle difficult to find in more populated areas. Many artists make use of the enormous variety of local materials to create distinctive styles directly related to the natural environment of this beautiful region.

Together, the West Coast Convention Bureau and CINZ can help you to organise a West Coast conference or convention to rival all others.
