Baypark is back in action

Trustpower Baypark is unique in the range of activities we can host in one location. With the easing of Covid restrictions, the remainder of 2022 has an exceptionally high-level of scheduled activities. Back-to-back events and quick turnarounds are the order of the day for Trustpower Baypark as the venue emerges from the challenges of the past two years.

The layout of Baypark includes the Arena and Stadium surrounded with fields and large outdoor areas, which are perfect for a variety of events. It is common to have several events taking place at once, using indoor and outdoor spaces, all with different entry/exit points to manage the flow of people and traffic.

There are a number of national and international sporting events such as Silver Ferns v Australia in October, Squash World Teams Cup and NZ Squash Nationals, and NZ Weightlifting Championships in November. Gymnastics and Volleyball Nationals all scheduled in 2022/2023.

Entertainment promoters are active again with National and International acts booked. Baydreams will be back in January which is a massive event for Baypark and Tauranga.

Business Events activities are also strong with conferences, meetings and corporate events. Baypark is attracting National and International conferences to Tauranga. There is a growing interest in Destinations like Bay of Plenty. The environment with its open spaces and outdoor attractions are appealing to people.”

Some of the activities lined up for the enjoyment of the community are:
