There’s much more than venue size and location to consider when planning your event or conference. Discover why Rotorua is your best choice.
Our People, Our Manaakitanga
The welcoming spirit of our people is found nowhere else. They’ve been carrying the guiding torch of their forebears for more than a century. In fact, many of whom are direct descendants of Aotearoa’s first tourism guides.
Our community of tourism, hospitality and events experts happily come together to make your event a success, even if it means working alongside competitors. They’re focused on the best outcome for Rotorua and want to ensure your delegates have the best experience possible.
We’re all about showcasing our incredible natural surroundings. There's a venue in Rotorua suitable for nearly any group size can be found in a geothermal valley, under the canopy of the giant redwoods in Whakarewarewa Forest, alongside a lake, on top a mountaintop, inside a rustic hilltop barn overlooking Mount Tarawera, and more.
If the ease of the city centre is what you’re after, options range from several hotel boardrooms and conference facilities – including the 5-star Pullman Rotorua – to our largest venue, Rotorua Energy Events Centre (EEC), a purpose-built convention centre with a 4,000-seat plenary.
Diverse Range of Accommodation
As with our venues, Rotorua also has an array of accommodation options ranging from 5-star, historic and boutique hotels, to those that are lakeside, overlook geothermal hot pools, are near Whakarewarewa Forest, or at one of our secluded luxury lodges.
Pro tip: there are nine hotels within a 10-minute walk to the city centre.
