Meetings and conferences at Holiday Inn Rotorua will have a fresh look following upgrades and refurbishments to key spaces.

The refurbishment means conferences, events and meetings in Rotorua will enjoy market-leading conference spaces in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The conference rooms, Cascades, Kauri, Totara and Te Puna Aroha, have been fitted with Panasonic high definition projectors with integrated Wi-Fi and audio systems, brand new black-out blinds and a fresh lick of paint.

A popular venue for hundreds of business events each year, from small meetings and extensive conferences to trade shows and exhibitions, Holiday Inn already has a well-deserved reputation as the hotel of choice in the central North Island.

The properties showcase venue Pohutu Cultural Theatre is unique to Rotorua and is the perfect location for conferences, black tie gala events, weddings and cultural performances.

Business development director Julie Carcaterra said the recent upgrade ensures Holiday Inn will stay front of mind for bookings in the town.

“As market leaders we’re always looking at ways to accommodate businesses for meetings, conferences, conventions and exhibitions while creating an experience to remember,” she said.

“We’re embracing change and look forward to our guests enjoying the new look and feel to the conference spaces with the upgraded technology.

“We’re passionate about making a difference and that’s reflected in our efforts to ensure we host events that are both productive and successful.”

Located next to the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve, Holiday Inn is surrounded by natural scenery, Maori culture and a bustling hub of thrill-seeking activity.

Many conference guests take advantage of everything Rotorua has to offer by extending their stay to explore the North Island’s adventure capital.

Carcaterra said 2016 was shaping up to be an exciting time for Holiday Inn and the destination as a whole.

“We’ve been listening to our client’s needs, with the recent upgrades and a change in direction and strategy, we will be delivering on a unique experience for our clients that’s reliable, consistent and offered in a genuine, warm and welcoming environment.

“We have some great events in-house over the coming weeks which is the perfect opportunity to showcase our upgraded facilities.”
