Hilton Lake Taupo Unveils Plans For New-Look Conference & Events Spaces
September 11, 2017
TAUPO, New Zealand - Hilton Lake Taupo, which was recently awarded New Zealand Regional Hotel of the Year at the prestigious HM Awards for the sixth time, has announced that it is undertaking a redesign of its conference and event facilities that are set to reopen in December 2017.
The refurbishment and extension to the hotel's iconic heritage wing will highlight the Victorian design of the original building, built in 1889, while also introducing state-of-the-art technology and contemporary furnishings to create a world-class event hub.
Adrian Teh, general manager, Hilton Auckland and Hilton Lake Taupo, says, "the development work will reinforce Hilton's position as the clear choice for conferences, meetings, weddings, social functions and corporate events in the Central North Island region."
"This extensive refurbishment will ensure that Hilton Lake Taupo remains the premiere location for events. The versatility of the spaces, combined with the property's outstanding location, spectacular views and dedicated Team, means the hotel is well equipped to deliver customised solutions and exceptional experiences," said Teh.
The new facilities, designed by Studio Design + Architecture, will feature an abundance of natural light, direct access to landscaped gardens, and a superb interior 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 Futureworks a company that installs high specification commercial audio-visual systems, will provide clients with access to fixed and portable LCD screens, projectors, surround sound systems in every room, and high-speed Wi-Fi to ensure a seamless experience for every event type.
With the refurbishment doubling theatre-style capacity to 260 people, and total capacity for a stand up event increasing to 430, this iconic property will cater to functions ranging from small groups to large events.
Hilton Lake Taupo is located at 80 - 100 Napier Rd, Hilltop, Taupo 3330
