Raglan Chamber welcomes new Growth Partner

The Raglan Chamber of Commerce along with the Cambridge and Te Awamutu Chambers recently met with New Zealand National Fieldays Society at Mystery Creek to celebrate their new strategic partnership.

NZ National Fieldays Society will come on as a Growth Partner of the Raglan Chamber and joins Bizworx Consultancy Ltd. who has been supporting the Chamber as their Principal Partner for the past few years.

NZ National Fieldays Society is the venue partner for the Waipa Networks Business Awards, providing support for the premier business event and hosting the regions top businesses and people at Mystery Creek Events Centre.

The strategic partnership is a continuation of the support provided for the awards and is a year round commitment to the three Chambers, giving back to the community and helping to foster a thriving region.

Peter Nation, CEO of the Fieldays Society said the new partnerships will help to provide immense support to the region by fostering businesses who play a crucial role in the success of the organisation and their events.

“Just last year, Fieldays alone contributed $191 million to the Waikato economy – that’s $191 million in products and services by businesses to support the visitors and exhibitors. This partnership is about giving back and providing support to help these businesses throughout the year,” said Nation.

“We’re looking forward to developing our relationship with New Zealand National Fieldays Society and the opportunities this new partnership holds,” said Hayley Willers, Co-Chair for the Raglan Chamber.

Along with the new partnership, the Raglan Chamber would also like to welcome new members who joined over the winter months, including Bow Street Studios, Brand Impact, MetOcean, Para Kore, Raglan Rock and Raglan Surf Co.

The Raglan Chamber will be hosting a ‘Meet the Members – Spring Fling’ this Friday 27 October at The Wharf Kitchen & Bar from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Members and non-members are welcome to attend.
