'Feast Above The Field' gives buyers a taste of Waikato

A group of buyers got to dine in the best seats in the house during an intimate dinner at FMG Stadium Waikato on Saturday night.

The dinner was part of a famil hosted by Hamilton & Waikato Business Events, which saw the group treated to a multi-day tour of some of the region’s business event offerings including Hobbiton Movie Set, Hamilton Gardens and Waitomo Caves.

Dubbed ‘Feast Above The Field, the dinner at FMG Stadium Waikato was hosted in the venue’s TV commentary box and included a sumptuous three-course meal prepared by the award-winning Montana Catering.

H3 Director of Business Development and Marketing Denise McRae says it was the second year the venue has held a pre-Convene famil dinner in the TV commentary box after its successful ‘The First XV’ dinner in 2016.

“We had such great feedback following last year’s pre-Convene famil dinner we decided to do it all again this year – with such impressive views out over the field towards Hamilton’s city skyline it really is the perfect spot from which to showcase the venue,” says McRae.

This year the H3 group is bringing three exhibitors to Convene – Claudelands Conference and Exhibition Centre, FMG Stadium Waikato and corporate hospitality specialists Spoilt For Choice.            

“We’re really excited to be exhibiting FMG Stadium Waikato and Spoilt For Choice at Convene for the very first time alongside our award-winning Claudelands Conference and Exhibition Centre.

“We invite you to come along and see our teams on stands 66-68.”
