Expressions of Interest

PassionLivesHere
Whanganui is proud host, and the North Island home to New Zealand's largest multi-sport event, the New Zealand Masters Games; we next host the Games 1st to 10th February, 2019.

Whanganui 2019 marks a significant milestone, as the event celebrates its 30th Anniversary and secures its space in history as the longest running Masters multi-sport event in Australasia, second only to Tasmania (1987)

The team is planning a spectacular celebration worthy of this milestone and we need you to help us deliver a successful Games that celebrates and showcases our city, and leaves a legacy for both the sports and our community.

We'd love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved with the 2019 New Zealand Masters Games and welcome Expressions of Interest in the following areas:

ENTERTAINMENT

Music? Performance? Comedy? - if you can entertain a crowd, we'd love to hear from you!

SPONSOR / IN-KIND SUPPLIER
As part of our bid to celebrate and showcase Whanganui to the rest of New Zealand, we'd love to hear from any local businesses who'd like to get involved to add value to the participant experience.

EXHIBITION SPACE

ACCOMMODATION
Do you own a Hotel, Motel, B&B, Campground Cabin, Motorhome Rental, Boarding School or Airbnb?

We're anticipating in the region of 3,000 visiting participants, supporters and spectators over the 10-day celebration - that's a lot of beds to find, so with support from Whanganui i-SITE, we're on a quest to make it really easy for our guests.

Are you able to offer a special New Zealand Masters Games Accommodation Package and help us put the "host" into "host city"? If the answer is 'Yes', and you're interested in being featured within our New Zealand Masters Games Accommodation showcase - we'd love to hear from you!

ATTRACTIONS & ACTIVITIES
Our New Zealand Masters Games participants typically have 3 primary motivations - a passion for sport, enjoyment of the social activities, and a desire for travel and cultural experience.

We're really proud of the wide range of attractions and activities Whanganui has to offer our guests, and with support from Whanganui i-SITE, we're keen to provide a spectacular Whanganui experience for all. 

If you're interested in being featured within our New Zealand Masters Games Attractions & Activities Pass - we'd love to hear from you!

GAMES HOST (Volunteer)
Without the passionate involvement of the volunteers who freely give their valuable time to support the delivery of the New Zealand Masters Games, this iconic event simply could not run.

Our Games Hosts will be made of the stuff of legends - you're not afraid to 'go the extra mile', you'll have that strong Kiwi 'can do' positive attitude and you'll be an outstanding ambassador for the New Zealand Masters Games and Whanganui!

If you're interested in being one of our many talented Games Hosts for 2019, we'd love to hear from you!
