Awards success for Claudelands

0

Claudelands is in the running for the title of ‘Best Venue’, just months after it scooped another top national award.

Claudelands was recently named as a finalist for ‘Best Venue 2019’ by the New Zealand Events Association (NZEA), centred around its hosting and support of the annual Hospice Waikato & Montana Food and Events Bucket List Banquet. Winners of the NZEA Awards will be announced at a gala evening in Auckland on 11 May.

In November Claudelands received the title of ‘Large Venue of the Year’ at the Entertainment Venues Association of New Zealand (EVANZ) Awards in Christchurch.  The venue took out the title off the back of an action-packed 12 months of events, coupled with an enhanced focus on sustainability and customer experience.

H3 Lead Event Technician Kyle Evelyn was also celebrated at the awards, receiving EVANZ’s ‘Rising Star of the Year’ award for his leadership and innovation within the business and industry.

Sean Murray, Hamilton City Council General Manager of Venues, Tourism and Major Events says the two awards are outstanding recognition for the business.

“We are very proud to receive these awards. Claudelands is an outstanding venue and our people have a huge amount of skill, experience and passion when it comes to events, so to have them recognised by the industry is fantastic,” says Murray.

“Kyle is a true star of our business and industry. Having recently stepped up into a leadership role within H3, he certainly has a bright and exciting career path ahead of him.”

Claudelands is a part of H3 – a unit of Hamilton City Council responsible for overseeing the city’s premier event venues – alongside FMG Stadium Waikato and Seddon Park.
