ChristchurchNZ launches BE Purposeful tool kit for events


ChristchurchNZ has launched a new BE Purposeful tool kit for event organisers designed to provide ongoing resources and practical tools to support clients when planning their events.

“New Zealanders and international visitors value our natural environment, and Christchurch city is making moves to become the most sustainable place possible – especially in its events and conferencing sector where our partners are invested in sustainability,” said Megan Crum, ChristchurchNZ Head of Business Events.

“As a new city we are innovative, and the city has been redesigned to embrace purposeful business events.  We embrace welcoming visitors to our city through manaakitanga and our commitment to protecting our natural environment.

“We can connect business event organisers to a wide range of suppliers who are passionate and purposeful.”

Options for delegates giving back to the community include native tree planting, wildlife conservation, wetland restoration and building equipment for schools.

“We are encouraging planners to follow our lead and check the website for inspiration and practical advice on how to make their next events as purposeful, meaningful and sustainable as possible,” Crum said.
