Crackerjack Events partnered with the University of Auckland Business School to deliver the Pacific Rim Real Estate Society Conference in Auckland. As the theme of the conference was ‘Extending the Boundaries’, all stops had to be pulled out.
Delegates and presenters from all over the world attended the Conference including Australia, New Zealand, UK, Finland, Germany, US, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Fiji and China.
The Pullman Hotel was Conference HQ, with educational and social activities showcasing the University and Auckland.
Conference activities included Conference Registration and a Welcome Reception; Breakfast on the University’s Marae; a Sunset Harbour Cruise and Cocktails followed by a Conference Dinner at a waterfront venue; and a Waiheke Island Wine Tour.
All this while a hurricane headed towards Auckland, which called for a quick switch away from the water and onto luxury busses, where Auckland’s highlights were still displayed. This is one of many instances where the team had to “think on their feet” to save an event.
