ChristchurchNZ Convention Bureau networks at Peppers Clearwater Resort

ChristchurchNZ Convention Bureau recently hosted a networking function for 60 business partners in the newly refurbished Kaikainui Room at Peppers Clearwater Resort.

 

Loren Heaphy, ChristchurchNZ’s General Manager Destination and Attraction previewed the release of ChristchurchNZ’s Business Events Strategy, a ground-breaking three-year roadmap with bold plans for the city’s business events marketing. The plan includes the launch of a new Advocate Programme for the city, and a Legacy Investment Fund.

 

At the event, Tim Loftus, GM Marketing Brand and Communications at ChristchurchNZ presented the group with a preview of the ExploreCHC marketing campaign, a long-term regional collaboration with Christchurch International Airport and eight districts across the central South Island.

 

Kate Latimer from the Peppers Clearwater team introduced the refurbished venue, with its striking furnishings, carpets and light fittings designed to complement the sparkling blue water of its setting on Lake Kaikainui. With floor to ceiling windows, the space can cater for 200 guests theatre-style or 120 for a seated banquet dinner. The venue overlooks the championship Clearwater Golf Course and is just 15 minutes from Christchurch city centre.
