Whanganui is situated on the west coast only 2.5 hours drive from Wellington with multiple weekly flights to and from Auckland. The city offers numerous conference facilities, many of which are unique heritage venues. Venues cater for 13 to 1,300 guests and we will offer the same hospitality, our renowned manaakitanga, no matter the size.

Picture the splendour of Edwardian and Victorian architecture that reflects the aspirations of an age of growth and hope for the future. Exactly the aspirations that businesses of today share in common with our location. Add to this the use of modern technology and Whanganui’s digital connectivity commitment and the recipe is perfect for building your business from where it has been to its own bright future. Relax and connect in Whanganui with your next conference.

The Royal Whanganui Opera House, Heritage House and The Grand Hotel line St Hill Street in the Central Business District instilling an image of the days of carriages and the early motor vehicle. The Grand Hotel was a whistle stop for the Duchess of York during the 1927 Royal Tour of New Zealand. The Grand Hotel, sitting elegantly in the modern age, has conference facilities, accommodation and dining options for the modern conference. Heritage House, built in 1914 to house the already existing Wanganui Gentleman’s Club, exudes the relaxed feeling of comradery, lively conversation and the image of dapper gentleman blowing the excess cue chalk into the atmosphere before engaging in a round of billiards. Newspapers at the time of the building’s opening waxed lyrical about its luxuries, and words like "ornate", "spacious" and "ornamental" were used liberally.

The Whanganui War Memorial Centre offers a more modernist building that has a grand presence in the heart of the city. It’s a building that says “I’m here”, a message your business will want to share with New Zealand and the World. With a large quality kitchen on the premises the by day conference venue can be seamlessly set up for an evening banquet. For a modern venue of similar capacity and still relatively central, Infusion is based at the oldest surviving Jockey Club in New Zealand, the Whanganui Racecourse. The venue has grand views over the course, abundant parking and great catering and bar facilities.

The Whanganui Jockey Club is not alone in its rich sporting history, Whanganui also has a national and international reputation in the sports arena that stretches back in time. The first athlete in the world to break the sub-minute mile, Peter Snell, did so at Cooks Gardens, Whanganui. The Cook Gardens Event Centre, a modern facility, has magnificent views over this historic running track and field. What better place for developing an aspirational approach to your business. Sport Whanganui can work in conjunction with the Cooks Gardens Event Centre to provide fun team building games on the track and field. A full kitchen and bar facilities are available.

For conference venues that combine venues, accommodation and dining facilities look no further than the Kingsgate Hotel, and the Quality Inn Collegiate. For the smaller boutique conference chose Bushy Park Homestead set in one hundred hectares of native bird sanctuary - you will have a difference sense of space and time just from entering the estate. Imagine the tree lined driveway absorbing the dust from Model T Tourers as it wends its way to the sweeping entrance of a grand Edwardian property. Expansive views look over the surrounding countryside. A sense of “having arrived” is clear at Bushy Park Homestead and is ideal for a boutique conference or business meeting.

These options are simply a taste of what can be offered for your next conference venue. There is so much more. Quality accommodation is available to suit those who choose a venue only for their event. Whanganui is an easy city to travel around, and Whanganui’s Conference Bureau is on hand to help assist with all accommodation needs and budgets. You may be travelling as a group but we will treat you as an individual.

What else is there to do in Whanganui I hear you ask? All you need and then some. Arts Tours, trips on the famous Whanganui River by Paddle steamer, jet boat or Waka. Horse riding on the beach to tours of the most highly regarded regional Museums and Art Galleries in New Zealand: The Whanganui Regional Museum and the Sarjeant Gallery. How about a round of golf on two nationally recognised courses? Contact the Conference Bureau get the answers to all your questions and Whanganui can provide a unique and meaningful location for your next conference.
