He Pō Whakangahau - A Night of Entertainment

Not an ordinary conference dinner, He Pō Whakangahau is a not-to-be-missed event! This promises to be a night to remember; a premium cultural experience at Te Puia - one of Rotorua's most spectacular natural assets, showcasing geothermal activity and Māori culture. 

Te Puia spans 70 hectares within the historic Te Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley. Witness the world famous Pōhutu geyser while enjoying a cocktail, marvel at the mud pools, hot springs and silica formations. You may even be lucky enough to spot a native Kiwi or learn from the national schools of wood carving, weaving, stone and bone carving. 

Experience a warm Māori reception, and enjoy a welcome drink overlooking the Pōhutu Geyser, boiling mud pools and native bush before settling in to enjoy the finest of local wine and food. There will be ample time for networking before the bank kicks off. 

A truly breath-taking evening at an iconic location, book now!
