Corporate Events in the Rotorua Redwood Forest


Beauty, tranquility, fresh air, peace, nature and adventure, teamed with an all-weather function space. You have just stumbled upon THE venue for a conference or event in Rotorua, New Zealand.

Just 3kms from the Rotorua CBD, the Whakarewarewa Redwood Forest is a magnificent 5,500ha stand of towering trees. At the heart, there’s a canopied, open air, all-weather function space that lends itself to all kinds of events.

‘Under the sails’ has power, heating, a stage and ablutions. As managers of functions in the Redwoods (on behalf of the Rotorua District Council), the Event Impressions team provide full event services.

Perfect for corporate functions, groups of 10 to 220 people can be seated ‘under the sails’, otherwise there’s room for 350 at a stand-up function.

Catering can be casual, food stations or fully plated. You can include entertainment, music, lighting, projection, performance, cultural elements, bands, choirs…. Anything you choose!

Casual or formal, breakfast, lunch or dinner, team building, product launches, brand activations, or evening cocktails. This venue is uniquely New Zealand.

Another plus, you may choose to incorporate the new Redwoods Treewalk adventure into your forest event.
