1. Centrally-located

The central location of Taupō allows for ease of travel, no matter where your attendees are coming from. At only three and a half hours drive from Auckland (or a short flight), it’s also a direct flight from Wellington and is extremely convenient for other towns, cities and regions in the North Island. 

South Island access is straightforward too - with connecting flights leaving from Christchurch via Rotorua, Wellington and Auckland.

3. Convenience 

Not only is it easy to get here, it’s also easy to get around town. We’re small (but mighty) which means no traffic jams, delays or long trips to get anywhere - unless you’re keen on venturing to somewhere remote. 

You’ll find free parking around all Taupō event venues and spaces, and in most cases, it will take literally five to 10 minutes to get to where you need to be. 

This means less time (and money) wasted on paid parking and transportation, which allows you to focus on what truly matters, making the most of your event here.

As well as professionals who are available to assist with your event planning, Taupō also boasts its very own business event partnership group. 

Collaboration and cooperation is key for the operators in this enterprise, who all work together to help with organising and hosting your event - everything from selecting the best accommodation, to booking venues and activities.  

5. Adventures and experiences aplenty  

The Lake Taupō region is jam-packed with an astonishing array of activities that are suitable for all kinds of businesses and organisations. But wait, there’s more. The world-class scenery and natural environment of this region will always impress - even a simple wander along the lakefront, with snow-capped mountains in the background, can be enough to take your breath away.  

So whether you’re looking to delight, inspire, motivate or reward your attendees, you won’t have to look far to find something that fits. We’ve got thrills on two wheels, excitement on the water, fun on the fairways, spaces to gather and experiences to bond over.
