Plan for Success

6 Tips for Organising Your Event

Big or small, we have the expertise to plan your next event. Our team of dedicated consultants are passionate about providing you with the inspiration and tools to make your meeting or event a success. Follow our six tips and tricks for stress free planning of your event:

  1. MEETING GOALS
    What’s the reason for your event? A thank-you, education and training, product launch, team building, sales and service meeting or celebration. Determine what needs to be accomplished by sketching out a mental picture of the meeting and making notes.
  2. IT’S A DATE
    The date can be one of the most crucial influences on the success of your event. Realistic timetables and critical paths are essential from day one of planning your meeting, conference or event. The earlier you set a date, the more venue choices you will have.
  3. WE’VE GOT NEW ZEALAND COVERED
    Venue location is a key point. With 21 great hotels and resorts we have venues to match every taste, size and budget. You may be looking for a function venue with a real point of difference, in an amazing location, or one that has easy access for your delegates. We can match the site to your purpose. For example, think tanks and brainstorming work better in more relaxed and unusual settings. Use our Hotel Capacity Chart to see which property can hold the right number of people for your occasion.
  4. WE’RE HERE FOR YOU

  5. MAKING IT HAPPEN
    Once you have made your decision we will introduce you to your very own Conference Manager. They will work with you and your team to finalise all the details and ensure your event runs smoothly. Your Conference Manager knows what decisions need to be made and when. They can provide support, collateral, brochures, presentations and photographic imagery. Assistance is also available in developing incentive programs, pre and post touring options, providing room layouts and event schedules to help keep track of all the tasks and timelines.
  6. MAKING IT MEMORABLE
    Millennium Hotels and Resorts will ensure your event is a success and exceeds delegate’s expectations.
