The heartland city of Hamilton on the banks of the mighty Waikato River is an ideal spot for conferences and business events with a touch of classic Kiwi charm.

Combine that with thousands of accommodation rooms in close proximity to the city and it’s not hard to see why so many people choose Hamilton to host their event.

There’s plenty to do near Hamilton before and after an event too. The Hobbiton movie set near Matamata is a favourite with movie buffs, while some of the country’s best surfing, cycling and caving experiences are just a short drive away.

Visitors can fly to Hamilton Airport on charter flights from Australia or arrive on domestic flights from all major New Zealand centres.
