Meet, play, sleep with VEC

Vodafone Event Centre’s gearing up for a big couple of months, as it prepares to showcase its offerings at both Convene (held at the centre) on 10 April and MEETINGS on 30-31 May.

Second Nature Charitable Trust (SNCT) chief operating officer Karyn Spencer says the VEC’s latest campaign, Meet. Play. Sleep. will be emblazoned across its six-stand exhibit space and the mood will be ‘celebratory’.

‘Along with its family of quality partners, Vodafone Event Centre proudly announces zero logistics for event organisers when the Ramada Manukau Pacific Centre hotel and suites open for business mid-2019,’ says Spencer.

These developments mean total ease for event organisers and attendees,” Spencer says.

‘Delegates can attend conference during the day; then network or perhaps something more physical, such as a team-building white water rafting experience at Vector Wero Whitewater Park, just 50 metres away from your meeting room. Then it’s a short stroll across the car park back to your room, to change for the gala dinner,’ Spencer explains.

Spencer says the Ramada has further strengthened the centre’s value to the industry.

Expected to open mid-2019 with reservations opening in the New Year, the Ramada will offer 200 beds with a configuration of 85 hotels rooms and 67 serviced apartment suites.

‘Auckland city’s accommodation squeeze is great news for Auckland South and the Vodafone Events Centre in particular,’ Spencer says.

‘Companies conduct business outside of the CBD and Ramada is capitalising absolutely on that.

‘With the centre adjacent to the Auckland Airport, with direct access of two major motorways, people no longer have to battle the traffic into the congested CBD.’
