Hamilton & Waikato Convention Bureau Manager, Amanda Graham says she hopes the new video will attract both national and international conferences and business events by giving organisers a snapshot of what the region has to offer, and also reminding locals about what’s available in their own backyard.
“Waikato has such a diverse and vibrant range of venues and attractions. It’s exciting to share behind the scenes footage from venues such as Claudelands Conference & Exhibition Centre and then show the contrast between other venues and experiences, such as Hobbiton Movie Set.
Graham says the video will not only be a great selling tool for upcoming tradeshows - it is also set to screen at a number of key industry events, including the upcoming Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Conference in October.
The video which has been filmed and produced by Nimbus Media, includes a range of footage from many of the Waikato’s ‘hero’ destinations including the international award winning Hamilton Gardens and magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
