Our Partners

Major Partners

The Whanganui District Council is committed to supporting a vibrant events environment in Whanganui that will continue to build a sense of community, enhance the city’s unique identity and add to its cultural wealth. It also aims to optimise the contribution of festivals and events to the city’s economic development. The Whanganui District Council has supported the NZ Masters Games since the first event was held in Dunedin in 1990 and sees this event as a great opportunity to showcase Whanganui.

Bringing to the table local expertise, contacts, and knowledge of the Whanganui Sporting community, the Games would simply be lost without the key contributions and work behind the scenes from the Sport Whanganui team.

Whanganui and Partners is the economic development agency of Whanganui. Their innovative and friendly team includes experts in business development, education and destination marketing. Whanganui & Partners are behind the NZ Masters Games, working towards a thriving and resilient economy for our district.
