Looking after visitors is part of Rotorua’s DNA – we’ve been hosting tourists and events since the late 1800s
When the Pink and White Terraces were considered the eighth Wonder of the World, people from around the globe flocked to Rotorua to see and bathe in the natural geothermal hot pools.
The tourism infrastructure that has developed since then is part of the reason why conference and event delegates love our city today. Our geothermal gems, amazing natural beauty, authentic expression and celebration of our Māori culture, and an array of outdoor experiences, from world-first adventure activities to relaxing spa and wellness therapies, still draw in visitors from all over the world. Combine world-class activities and attractions with our famous manaakitanga (hospitality), it’s no wonder Rotorua is an aspirational destination to host conferences and meetings.
Rotorua has a number of very special venues. How about dining or hosting your meeting in a location that overlooks the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest active geyser spouting water 30 metres (100 feet) into the air? This is just one of the many unique venues that will create memorable experiences for you and your delegates.
Of course, it’s also important for your event participants to have comfortable accommodation as well. Whether it’s a five-star hotel, luxury lodge, a well-appointed motel or something in between, we have numerous options to suit your needs and budget.
With our rich history in tourism and events, experienced service providers, and a dedicated business events team who live and breathe Rotorua, our city’s conference proposition continues to evolve.
