Many conference and events venues claim to be impressive, but only Holiday Inn Rotorua’s Pohutu Conference & Events Centre has the perfect combination of modern features, impressive technology and cultural elements that tie the conference room to the rich cultural land surrounding it.

The  recently upgraded Pohutu Conference & Events Centre has acquired new sound and lighting systems, adjustable back lights, bespoke colours and LEDs. There’s an ample amount of natural light, complimentary WiFi access, ceiling projectors, catering options, coffee and tea facilities available, premium audio available and complimentary stationery. There are also tasteful touches that hint at the Maori culture that surrounds the hotel- right outside is the entrance to the Whakarewarewa Living Maori Village.

The Pohutu Conference & Events Centre  is a stand out space that will make a huge impression for your conference or event. Holiday Inn is located at the heart of Rotorua’s attractions and Rotorua itself offers tons of team building activities and the serenity of nature to inspire your delegates. From wandering through the Redwoods forest to mountain biking to visiting Whakarewarewa next door, there’s plenty of activities available nearby that will keep your delegates interested and inspired.


The hotel also offers a free shuttle to the Rotorua township every half hour.

Holiday Inn Rotorua has always had a great location amongst the geothermal wonderland of Whakarewarewa, which combined with Maori cultural elements has always made the hotel a great choice for conferences and events” said Holiday Inn Rotorua General Manager Kent Breeze.

“We are delighted  to also have a flexible, technologically advanced and unique venue with the Pohutu Conference and Events Centre that works in combination with our other conference rooms, delicious food, friendly service and range of accommodation rooms.
