It was with great pleasure REINZ held the first event of the year at the newly opened Events on Khyber, the REINZ Centre of Excellence. The evening event was held on 8 February, thanking REINZ partners for their contribution and continuing support.
“Thank you so much for hosting a lovely event last night. I was glad to have been able to get there, see your lovely new Level 2 venue and connect with some great colleagues in the industry”, says Gillian Dawe, Rockend General Manager NZ.
The evening included great food, drinks and networking opportunities for REINZ events partners. One of the highlights was REINZ’s CEO, Bindi Norwell, speaking about the upcoming year and thanking the event partners for their ongoing support.
Graham Crews, REINZ trainer says, “I am very impressed with the new REINZ Headquarters in Grafton. For the industry to have such an excellent facility in a favourable setting is a tribute to all those who worked to see the project through to a successful conclusion. As a trainer, I am a particularly pleased with the layout of the training floor. The flexible design of the sliding partitions can cater for a wide variety of training uses such as large and small audiences, break out rooms and for parallel seminars/workshops. There is a shortage of well-designed, flexible and modern training facilities in greater Auckland and our industry is indeed fortunate to have one of the best in our own new ‘home’ ”.
Events on Khyber features seven individual rooms, and many have interchangeable and relocatable walls creating a venue space to suit different needs. It is designed to host anything from small intimate showcases and product launches, through to large scale training and auctions.
“The evening was truly enjoyable. It was great to meet and network with some of the other individuals you work with and find out more about their specialties, a lovely bunch of people. I appreciate the time, effort and hospitality shared by the REINZ team”, Russell Taylor, OPD Business Development Manager commented.
