Bay of Plenty Bay of Plenty
discover why they call it the Bay of Plenty...
White Island, the mystical live marine volcano, sits majestically on the horizon off the beach and township of Whakatane, just south of Tauranga. White steam billows into the sky creating a striking contrast to the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean stretching into the distance as far as the eye can see.

Small wonder this is New Zealand's second fastest-growing region.

The view from Tauranga's coastline is awesome, and your New Zealand conference delegates could see it all with a convention in the Bay of Plenty. The ocean is a vast playground for dolphins, marlin and a myriad of fish. Swimmers, surfers, yachts and boats full of anglers can be seen enjoying the tropical waters. Organise an Tauranga incentive travel getaway for your team - the sights of the Bay of Plenty will blow them away!

With its dazzling seaside setting and sparkling white sand beaches, Tauranga has a relaxed atmosphere typified by long hot summers, sun-drenched days on the beach and balmy evenings at seaside cafés.


bay of plenty Conference Facilities
Tauranga caters best for the mid-sized New Zealand conference market in hotels or purpose-built venues teamed with nearby accommodation. There are fantastic country lodges for smaller meetings and a selection of vineyards with conference facilities also make for a unique setting.

There’s a venue for every sized event held in Tauranga or the surrounding region. Large Bay of Plenty conferences and conventions, intimate meetings and incentive travel can all be catered for.


Fine wine and food
Organise for your Bay of Plenty conference or event to be fully-catered by one of our local businesses. The Bay of Plenty region is well-known for its succulent produce. Tantalise your taste buds with the abundance of vine-ripened fruit, fresh seafood and farm-fresh produce. For real indulgence, hold your meeting at one of the Bay of Plenty's two award-winning wineries, Morton Estate in Katikati and Mills Reef in Tauranga. If it’s nightlife you’re after, head to The Strand, on the Tauranga waterfront, where there is a variety of restaurants and bars all within strolling distance of each other. From quiet lounge bars for those Bay of Plenty conference delegates wanting to relax, to hip clubs with hot DJs, Tauranga has something for everyone.


Action Adventure
A short drive from Tauranga you’ll find white-water rafting, four-wheel-drive safaris, beachside horse trekking, jet boating, golf courses, animal parks and the vintage aeroplane museum. Any one of these activities rounds off a great day for a Bay of Plenty conference delegate.

For a great business team building challenge, charter a boat for a day and enjoy big game fishing. Alternatively, offer the incentive of swimming with dolphins, for a memorable experience. Or just relax and soak up the rays on Tauranga's most famous surf beach, Mount Maunganui.
 

Location
Holding your Bay of Plenty conference, convention or meeting in the region is convenient and hassle-free! Nestled in the Bay of Plenty, it is an easy and scenic two hour drive south from Auckland along the Pacific Coast Highway, which follows the coastline. Tauranga is the sentinel to the Bay of Plenty region and, of course, is also accessible by commercial or charter flights.
