Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


New business events legacy programme launched in Wellington

Organisations looking to host conferences in Wellington, New Zealand now have expertise on hand to assist with conference legacy projects.

Business Events Wellington (BEW) has officially launched its legacy programme with the development of resources to help clients formulate individual legacy projects. A new specialist conference advisor has also been appointed to guide organisations through the process.

BEW Manager Irette Ferreira said the aim of the legacy programme is to capture the positive outcomes and impacts generated by conferences in Wellington that are additional to the economic benefits.

“Conferences are a powerful platform where knowledge and ideas are exchanged and discussed, and where new solutions are born out of collaboration,” she said. “Business Events Wellington want to capture these outcomes and support our clients in achieving their legacy goals leading to social and global change.”

Organisations looking to implement legacy projects from their conference can receive support from BEW on how to transform intention into actions.

Ferreira said, “We provide advice and connections locally. Once a legacy project has been completed, we can also explore opportunities to maximise its impact.”

While the legacy programme is focused on international conferences, BEW is also working with domestic conferences with long-term agreements anchoring them to the city.

Dr Zahra Champion, Executive Director of BioTech New Zealand, which held its inaugural Life Sciences Summit in Wellington last year, said, “BEW is supporting us to expand the impact of our conference beyond the two-day summit. It has been integral in the planning of new elements, helping us with introductions and valuable advice.”
