First-class accommodation – like that provided by Gables Lakefront Motel -  is an important factor in attracting major events to Lake Taupo.

Recently rated No 9 on Trip Advisor, Gables Lakefront Motel is supporting the booming events industry with i-SITE Taupo by providing such high-quality accommodation.

“Events are extremely important to the Taupo region,” says Gail Henderson who is the manager of the Taupo i-SITE.

“First class accommodation such as Gables Lakefront Motel is very important for both Taupo events and the Taupo region.  By providing high quality accommodation, they are the foundation for the events industry,” says Gail Henderson.

The i-SITE Visitor Information Centres is the first stop for anyone visiting or seeking information about Taupo. Visitors can enjoy the re-assurance of dealing with a real person who is also a local with first-hand experience.

“Events put Taupo on the map, Taupo is fast becoming the events Capital of New Zealand,” says Gail.

Big events attract a large number of visitors to Taupo. On November 30 the Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge takes place in Taupo. “The Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is New Zealand’s largest cycling event and the world’s largest cycling relay,” says Gail.

One of Taupo's iconic events, organised by the Taupo Half Marathon, is the Mizuno Half Marathon and this is held on August 4, 2013. “It is New Zealand's largest stand-alone half marathon,” says Gail. With its fantastic views of the mountains and Lake Taupo the Mizuno Half Marathon is popular with runners of all abilities.

“The Taupo Symposium 2013 Fabric Arts Festival will be held from July 18-23 2013 and will be another fun and unique event for the Great Lake Centre,” says Gail.  This promises to be a massive event for Taupo. The Symposium will be held over 5 days with 250 workshops.
