Your Event, Elevated

Franchises planning conferences and events around New Zealand can experience something out of the ordinary with a special offer from EVT Hotels & Resorts

One of the benefits of buying a franchise is the community you join – there is always someone you can talk to who can empathise with your experiences, celebrate your successes or commiserate when something goes wrong. That’s why it’s important for franchisors to bring their teams together in person on a local, regional, or national level, to keep morale high, ensure everyone is working towards the same goals and stay connected as a business.

‘There is an art to delivering events that inspire, reward and galvanise teams,’ says Tracy Martin, National Director of Sales & Marketing, New Zealand, for EVT Hotels & Resorts. ‘People want to feel that coming together has an impact and clear purpose, and differs from business-as-usual. To make the most of any event, small or large, you need to have the right location, the right venue, the right atmosphere and the right support team. And that’s where EVT Hotels & Resorts come in.

‘This year, EVT is kicking things up a notch and offering added value to every conference booking.’

Options for every budget, industry and location

EVT has a range of properties around New Zealand that can accommodate anything from an intimate team meeting to a large national conference of 500 attendees. Their brands include QT Hotels and Resorts, Rydges Hotels and Resorts, Atura, The Independent Collection and LyLo.

‘This means that there are options fit for every budget, industry and location,’ says Tracy. ‘Across EVT, there are properties in Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, and the group can also offer access to sister hotels in Australia and Singapore for conferences, meetings or incentives.’

With Conference and Events specialists at each property, EVT has built a strong reputation in the industry for executing high-quality functions and providing incredible service and value, delivering everything from small team gathering to multi-day trade shows. The nature of EVT venues means guests can work, stay and eat on-site, with exceptional food and beverage offerings and quality accommodation.

The personal touch

Each property in EVT prides itself on offering a personalised approach to event organisers and guests alike. ‘We’re a company that knows customers and communities,’ says Tracy. ‘That means we can work with local and national organisations to give franchises the elevated experience they are looking for.’

For 2024, EVT has something new to offer the market – a package designed exclusively for conference and event organisers called Your Event, Elevated.

‘Book an event at any of our properties in 2024 and we’ll gift you 10 percent of the booking cost to spend on selected upgrades,’ says Tracy. ‘It’s a way for us to add value back to the client whilst supporting local businesses. It’s a great way to elevate your event by locking in those extra ‘surprises and delights’ you might not have otherwise been able to justify.’ The offer applies to any booked event, from a half-day meeting to a three-day conference.

‘Whether you want to add a welcome cocktail party to set the scene for your event, an extra dish to your awards dinner, reward and incentivise franchisees with room nights, or simply make sure coffees are taken care of, our team have plenty of ideas to help you create a package for your brand that makes the event one to remember.

‘Raise the bar with quirky luxe and be surrounded by inspiring artwork at QT Hotels and Resorts; impress with a slick event complemented by fantastic fare that celebrates local suppliers with Rydges Hotels and Resorts; get down to business in the heart of Wellington with Atura; immerse your team in the community with longer stays at The Independent Collection such as the Museum Apartment Hotel; or enjoy iconic scenery and budget-friendly accommodation at one of LyLo’s three locations.

‘Whatever takes your fancy, this is your opportunity to put “above and beyond” on the agenda.’

Central point of contact

Tracy says, ‘Regardless of your needs, we offer a centralised point of contact so that you can access the facilities across the whole group and build a relationship with the EVT team. We can assess your priorities and tailor-make packages to suit your franchise.
‘Get in touch and we’ll make sure it’s Your Event, Elevated.’
