Meeting Newz Septeber / October 2022

When you come to Rotorua, chances are you’ll meet some of our original hosts from way back. They’re among the best advocates for Rotorua – they love this place and they love sharing what makes our city awesome. It won’t take long for you to see, hear and feel their passion, enthusiasm, sincerity and warmth, and it won’t be long before you realise Rotorua offers a deeper experience than anywhere else in Aotearoa. Deb Wootton spent several years in Australia promoting Rotorua as a business events destination. The more she talked about it, the more she started to appreciate her hometown and soon returned to Rotorua. For me, it’s all about the people she says. I love the people and I love being around my tribe again. People I went to school with, and people that I have worked with in the industry for a really long time. We know what it takes to deliver truly creative, memorable and unique events. Let us look after you for your next event Let’s talk The warmth and open-hearted nature of the Rotorua community is something Lynley Martin holds very close to her heart and she can’t picture living anywhere else. Where everyone is treated as whānau (family), regardless of where they’re from or how long they’re here for. It’s the manaakitanga (hospitality) of this place that’s special, she says. If anybody needs anything, needs a hand, or needs advice I’m always happy to help. It’s just part of who we are.
