Northland’s venues and resorts reflect the spirit of its beautiful sunny beaches, ancient kauri forests, and rugged cliffs. The Northland region retains a natural simplicity and is easily accessed due to its close proximity to Auckland.

Its largest town is Whangarei, with a population of 80,000 and an airport that is serviced by flights from most major New Zealand cities. Venue options in Whangarei include the redeveloped Toll Stadium Northland Events Centre and the popular Forum North theatre and exhibition hall in the centre of town.

The picturesque beaches and stunning coastal views of the Bay of Islands make it another popular conference choice. The area is home to some of New Zealand’s most luxurious resorts and hotels and boasts world class venues including the Copthorne Hotel and Resort Bay of Islands in Paihia and the Duke of Marlborough Hotel in historic Russell.
