New Zealand’s climate is complex and varies from warm subtropical in the far north to cool temperate climates in the far south, with severe alpine conditions in the mountainous areas in the winter.

Temperatures in summer (December to March) can range from 18-30 degrees. Most areas of New Zealand have between 600 and 1600 mm of rainfall, spread throughout the year with a dry period during the summer.

In 2014 , the estimated population of NZ is just over 4.5 million. New Zealanders, informally known as “Kiwis”, predominantly live in urban areas on the North Island. The five largest cities are Auckland (with one-third of the country’s population), Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and Tauranga. The majority of New Zealand’s population is of European descent with the indigenous Māori being the largest minority followed by Asians and non-Māori Pacific Islanders.


ForumPoint2 and AgriTravel were selected as our project partners and from day one we knew we had chosen the right associates. The level of detail in the planning was exceptional and they were always one step ahead on the planning with alternative scenarios if something didn’t quite work. We were very selective in choosing whom we worked with as the level of trust required for an event of this magnitude, we felt, was extremely high.

Both ForumPoint2 and AgriTravel provided efficient and effective staff whom surpassed all expectations and left our association able to enjoy being hosts. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this fabulous team to anyone hosting any event at any level. We cannot thank them enough.
