Nelson Venues provides comprehensive venue management and additional solutions for venues in the Nelson/Tasman region.
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH The greatest number of sunshine hours a year is just one of the many reasons why businesses and individuals choose Nelson as a corporate and leisure destination. The fantastic climate, magnificent landscape and vast array of outdoor activities all combine to make our region one of the most visited places in New Zealand.
We are blessed with a number of unique venues which can be utilised for corporate or private functions and events. However many of these do not have their own dedicated personnel and as a potential visitor it can be difficult to navigate the process of enquiry.
Nelson Venues aims to create and effectively market your venue; providing you with a personalised management service, whilst providing clients with an experienced point of contact which can offer professional guidance about the right venue choice for them. By providing a dedicated point of contact we aim to increase the number of clients who make Nelson their destination of choice, whilst assisting you to provide more efficient, successful and profitable experiences for your clients.
By becoming a member of Nelson Venues you will have the opportunity to link in to our experienced sales, marketing and event management team, increasing enquiry levels, securing more bookings and implementing successful solutions for your venue.
GOOD FOR THE CLIENT In addition to a database of boutique locations, Nelson Venues will have an accredited team of suppliers and will be able to offer a comprehensive information and quotation service; effectively providing a ‘complete solution’ for clients interested in holding their event in Nelson. By creating a broad membership base we will be able to effectively advise clients about the most suitable location to meet their needs and ensure all services are put in place to carry the event through from conception to completion.
GOOD FOR THE REGION By providing a centralised, dedicated team of experts offering venue advice, Nelson Venues will ease the journey from enquiry to booking and consequently increase the conversion rates. As Conference Organisers start to utlise the new service they will experience how it simplifies their workload and will begin to recommend Nelson as a destination to clients; increasing the visitor numbers and revenue into the region.
