Claudelands unites association executives at AuSAE Linc Conference 2023

Claudelands Conference and Exhibition Centre host the largest gathering of association executives in New Zealand.

Over 150 association executives gathered with industry leaders at Claudelands Conference and Exhibition Centre to welcome The Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE) Leadership, Insights, Networking and Connections (Linc) Conference 2023 – the largest gathering of association executives in New Zealand.

During the two-and-a-half-day conference, association executives engaged with regional exhibitors and business events experts from across the country. The conference featured keynote speakers, workshop sessions, thought-provoking panel discussions, and networking opportunities, all designed to inspire, educate, and connect all attendees.

Melissa Williams, H3 Business Development and Sales Manager - Business Events, remarked, “After many years of close collaboration with Brett Jeffery – AuSAE’s General Manager, and Aimee Tyson, Events Manager at Business Events Waikato, it was great to see the event finally come to fruition.”

“AuSAE Linc provided us and our regional partners with the opportunity to showcase our unique Waikato offering. Guests were invited to experience Hobbiton™ Movie Set Tours, The Red Barn, Hamilton Gardens, Novotel Hamilton Tainui, Ibis Hamilton Tainui, River Ride Cycle Way, the exceptional catering from our exclusive partner, Montana Food and Events, and our conference centre, Claudelands.”

Claudelands proudly exhibited on the Waikato regional stand, alongside Lime & Soda – part of the Leisure Time Group NZ, Hobbiton™ Movie Set Tours, The Red Barn, and Business Events Waikato. 

Melissa shares, “AuSAE Linc is renowned for encouraging innovation and fostering growth, and we couldn’t be prouder to have been a part of this event and provide a space for association leaders to focus on their development and that of their teams. Congratulations to Brett Jeffery and the AuSAE team for a successful conference and thank you to our regional partners and the H3 Team for delivering an exceptional experience.”
