Hilton Lake Taupo unveils plans for conference and event spaces

Hilton Lake Taupo, which was recently awarded New Zealand Regional Hotel of the Year at the  HM Awards for the sixth time, is undertaking a redesign of its conference and event facilities that is set to reopen in December 2017.

The refurbishment and extension to the hotel’s iconic heritage wing will see the Victorian design of the original building, built in 1889, sit alongside state-of-the-art technology and contemporary furnishings to create a world-class event hub, a media release from the hotel says.

With the refurbishment doubling theatre-style capacity to 260 people, and total capacity for a stand up event increasing to 430, it will cater to functions ranging from small groups to large events.

Adrian Teh, general manager, Hilton Auckland and Hilton Lake Taupo, says that the versatility of the spaces, combined with the property’s location, views and dedicated team, means the hotel is well equipped to deliver customised solutions and exceptional experiences.

The new facilities, designed by Studio Design + Architecture, will feature an abundance of natural light, direct access to landscaped gardens, and an interior in keeping with the exclusive resort atmosphere including Kichler Circolo chandeliers, custom carpets and locally hand crafted solid timber side cabinets.

Investments in new technology, with AV partner Futureworks, will provide clients with access to fixed and portable LCD screens, projectors, surround sound systems in every room, and high speed Wi-Fi.
