CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"In 2021 we were fortunate to host our annual conference in Blenheim, amidst COVID lockdowns and panic. It was a fantastic opportunity for our members to come together and bond over the different times and challenges they were facing. Blenheim was a very different location for us to choose as we tend to stick to city centres, however in coming to Blenheim for our famil through Destination Marlborough in 2020, I was shown a huge array of options that made it worth a second look.

The convention centre is one of the best set up facilities we have had the pleasure to use - multiple room options plus fantastic exhibition space it was smooth and seamless from an operations point of view. Destination Marlborough showed us through a number of accommodation options as well as offsite venues for our dinner evening. Having options to choose from made it an added bonus.

The team was a breath of fresh air to work with. They are knowledgeable of the area and enthusiastic to share experiences and ideas, nothing was too much trouble and it was an enjoyable couple of days. The nicest part of the experience was having them touch base from time to time to see if there was anything else they could help with once we had locked in our dates and venues.

I can highly recommend using the Business Events team at Destination Marlborough to give you a wonderful overview of the area and facilities on offer, I can also recommend hosting a conference in Blenheim as it was a great opportunity to enjoy a unique part of New Zealand."

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"The Holiday Parks industry has held our annual national Conference & Trade Exhibition at the Marlborough Events Centre in 2009, 2014 and 2021. Our delegates love travelling to Marlborough and enjoy the many attractions and activities that the region has to offer. We find the destination, the conference centre and the wide range of accommodation works well for our members. We are looking forward to returning in the near future."

“I was blown away by the fantastic offering in the Marlborough region. Working with the Business Events team at Destination Marlborough on the famil program was a breeze, and what they treated us to was outstanding. We said we wanted to see it all – and I know we didn’t but we did experience a lot! The Business Events team showcased a huge variety of the region – from luxury amongst the vineyards to rustic in the sounds – I now have an extensive catalogue of ideas, inspiration and contacts for Marlborough, and I can’t wait to be creating an event there soon.”

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"When we put forward the Marlborough region for our customers next conference we reached out to the Business Events team at Destination Marlborough. The support we received was just incredible from supplier connections, site inspection hosting and overall region support. The event was an astounding success . All suppliers were supportive in ensuring our vision was delivered and we really wow'd our customers. I would definitely recommend the region as your next domestic destination!"

“Thank you for everything you did for the conference. The Business Events team at Destination Marlborough were a true partner right from the tender process through to post-event assistance. Their friendliness and willingness to contribute to making our event an experience for delegates was hugely appreciated. We continue to receive glowing feedback referring to the conference as “the best one yet”. Destination Marlborough has been terrific to work with and we are certainly recommending them to others.”

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"We had done a famil in 2019 and were just so impressed with what was on offer – all the tourism providers and staff were so welcoming that it made Marlborough a very easy choice for 2020. Everything got postponed due to Covid, and we were so thrilled to go ahead in March of this year.

The team at MCTT who are now running the MEC were brilliant – they were great to deal with and delivered a very professional event. They were really easy to work with and worked tirelessly to pull everything together for us. Some of our members commented that it was our best conference yet – and they’ve been running for at least 20 years so that’s very high praise."

Your team were fantastic in the lead up to the conference, providing multiple famils and endless information and the onsite delivery was seamless. The venues worked perfectly for the scope of the conference and how Stadium 2000 was transformed for the dinner was just stunning!

We look forward to working in your beautiful region again soon."
