Welcome to Palmy and Manawatū

Palmerston North (or as we like to call it, Palmy) and Manawatū are innovative and exciting destinations ready for your next event! Travelling here is easy by road, air or rail and once you’ve arrived, you can get around with absolute ease.

You’ll love discovering our rich arts scene, immersive bush walks and adrenaline junkie activities. Whether you’re walking, driving, catching a taxi or taking an e-scooter, you’ll be between venues in no time. Plus, most of our accommodation providers are only a hop, skip and a jump away from your event.
Our thriving urban centre is in the heart of the lower North Island, and together we have an established business ecosystem that is well connected and home to some of the brightest minds in Aotearoa. We’re leading the way with industry research, sustainability, nutrition, infrastructure and the future of food. We are a hub for industry research and development labs, plus we have the highest number of PhDs per capita in New Zealand. We’re also a future-focused region that cares about enhancing our natural and built environment. So come on, why not check out Palmy and Manawatū?
